XXX-PCP

I know its dedicated pairs going to the unit, but what exactly does the pcp acronym mean?

Means its coming straight from the CO

Pair 123 from the CO to binding post 10 in the panel room (if your in an apt which I assume you are)

PCP is the acronym for the CO its coming from

more likely...

cable 123 pair 10 binding post XXX-PCP

because cable pair 123, pair 10 doesn't make much sense. Why would you have 2 cable pairs in the same cable????

as for the XXX-PCP

I've been told that this is most likely an 'industrial encap'. Out my way, we see these most commonly in residential town houses and strip malls.

The main cable is pulled through the units, usually in the basements. The sheath is stripped back in each unit and usually a couple of pairs are pulled out of a binder and 'dedicated' in the records as servicing that unit. The pairs are usually wired directly/indirectly to some form of protection where the ISW of the unit also comes in to play.

I dont know exactly was PCP stands for though.

Also the longer I look at it the more I'm inclined to think it's probably not cable 123. It is most likely an incomplete DSA designation. It probably should say something similar to

ca123-1pair10bpXXX-PCP

I have seen the XXX-PCP on many F1's for ftth. What it means is another matter but the fact is it really doesn't matter at all. You even see it on F1's fed from a remote in the form of XXX-RCP and others. Its a ficticious F1 assignment for the field and has some meaning to assignment clerks. XXX-ENC is what you will see for encap.

yes if the OP is FTTH then you may be right there. I haven't seen an FTTH assignment in a while.

It's not ALWAYS ficticious, thats just what assigners tell the average station tech. They are sometimes real cables and pairs, or oe designations, but they aren't important to you since you wont be working in that wiring out point anyways.

I believe RCP is the french version of CDF. Count Down From. Which means the tech can't look for and use Binding post information at this wiring point - he has to use ca and pr info or oe designations.

So in your remote CO scenario, you could have a copper cable feeding your remote CO from a Host CO. In the remote itself, on the actual verticals in the frame , will be writen the cable number and range of pairs wired to the remote CO. The tech wont be using binding post information at that point.

I've seen FTTH with FCXXXX assignement if I'm not mistaken.
