How does this work?
In most cases a “2 core” fibre cable will be installed into a designated area or room where termanation will take place.
OpenServe will make use of their current pole infrastructure where an overhang cable from their pole is connected to your home. If the customer does not wish to have an overhang cable, it will then be for the clients account to make conduit provisions to the home. Strategies can be made with technician upon site visit.
Octotel will make use of their pre-installed grey fibre box, normally located Infront of home border wall or fence. They will provide conduiting up to 20 meters from the home. Additional cost to the customer will be invoiced by Octotel if distance is exceeded.
From there, a fibre patch cable connect the termanation box to a ONT (Optical Network Terminal) device. The job of this device is to convert optical signals to ethernet signals.
From the ONT device, an ethernet patch cable can be used to connect into you indoor wireless router (access point).
Most cases the termination box and the ONT device are glued on the wall (hidden) close to the indoor wireless router.
