FYI here is my network cabinet as of this afternoon and just getting fiber

 

Excuse the 3 cables out the bottom, i havent installed my network rack and patch panel yet, going in a separate cupboard, and thats where the other 2 blue un terminated cat6a cables go.

 

There is a bit of space in there but to fit an ONT, Router, Switch and patch panel you need to be careful about placement of things.

 

 

 

 

Thats how far the ONT sticks out:

 

 

 

 

Here is how big the ONT power supply is, you would struggle to mount this on anything except a vertical power socket, the other problem is most Router power supplies are the same shape so you could plug 2 things into a double vertical socket. i will be putting in a constant vigil sentry UPS soon which will allow me to only use one power socket in there and remove the multi board.

Thanks for the pics really appreciate it, I see what you mean pretty tight in a 28, what cabinet are you using for patch and network switch?

@Stu1 im using storage cupboard (kitchen pantry cabinet) that ill be putting in the rest of the network stuff, patch panel, switch, NAS etc in there

 

that will take up about 1/4 of the cupboard so the rest will be my electronics storage

 

here is a picture of where it will go, Left hand cables go into the house via conduit, 2 cables go to the ONT cabinet and the rest go through the garage. There are 13 Ethernet cable runs in the garage for various things.

Looks good. I'mn a fan of using plywood too as you can unscrew to change any cables you need :)
