Re: Optimum Lightpath Installation

What do you mean by east/west?
Where does the cable plugged into 'alarms' go?

Jeff, the alarm cable goes to the rectifier to notify the carrier if the power goes out and what battery level is. No need taking trouble tickets for a power outage. East and west is the name given to the two diverse routes out of a switch or mux.

Yeah don't know why they did the breakout to the Westell. Although an additional note, our building may have more than 10 retail tenants and the bulk is residential.
