Re: Warrnambool (Victoria, Australia) exchange fire

Still no word on what caused the fire from what Ive been able to find (unless I missed it), but heres a couple of news articles with some pr0n. Pr0n is always good.

Trying to work out what transmission kit is pictured here. I have a feeling it may be Ericsson, as I believe that is what Telstra uses in their network.

In that first one Technicians spend an awful lot of time checking wires. I wonder if they do anything else...

From the article in the second link apparently they did not actually have any fire suppression system in the CO, just an alarm link to the fire department. I can honestly say I've never heard of that before (at least here in Canada) and seems highly irresponsible, just a problem waiting to happen (which it did).

What an absolute mess. Saving a dime today will cost you plenty tomorrow. Talk about putting all your eggs in one unprotected basket.

If you can't do it right the first time you can always do it wrong the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th...
