Re: My first attempt at cable "lacing"

Looks like someone made a typo too.

LOL - Nice catch. Been walking past those panels for 3 years, and never noticed!

I wonder why on the upper DSX the last 4 low speeds (Lucent C-7-1,4 Fuji 5-7-1,4 are not wired?

And the middle one is only half wired?

Also strange is the DSX's are powered but it looks like the A lead spindowns are not used, noramlly a DSX would have two and a half pair per slot that looks like only two pair per slot.

These DSX panels are actually used for timing distribution, so they aren't wired fully... Was just using them as an example of lacing. Our DS1 cross-connects are on an ADC frame; not traditional DSX panels.

Small update. Last bit of gear has been moved into the rack, that being the AS5350. This was actually in a rack off to the side out of picture, but has since been moved into our rack as it belongs to us and is used to provide a PRI to a customer, who we actually colocate with (go figure ).

Trust me when I say this that even though it looks like the cable ties have been done up really tight and are squeezing the cables, they really arent that tight. They are firm, but still easily rotatable. Just looks a bit funny in the picture for some reason.

All services have now been migrated off the PoP that this one replaces, so I can finally decomission that one and pull the gear out.

This PoP is doing a bit of work now. It services two DSLAMs, and a couple of customers via ethernet and other types of services. Its quickly becomming a major site for us.

Its possible that another switch will be installed to provide fibre based connections, and its looking more likely that the two switches pictured here will be merged together as the top one isnt likely to have much more plugged into it and seems a bit of a waste.

This is about as pretty as cable management gets where I work:

Cool, I was trying to work out what that was. Is it just me or is that ODU absolutely massive?
