Thanks to kevinlms for the picture1740 viewsShop fitters at work.

Two pics of a shop MDF in Moorabbin Vic. Note how the display stand support is right in front of the frame, making it impossible to access more than the right 30% of each Krone Strip. All the lines I needed to test were on pairs <6. I found the cover, in the storeroom 15 metres away.

I had to arrange to come back, after the stand had been partly dismantled.

Thanks to kevinlms for the picture437 viewsCan I have my phones back? - Bayswater, Vic.

After the previous occupant had 'sent someone around to recover their
phone system'. My customer, assumed that the 'someone' was qualified to
do so & gave go ahead. The 27 way was pulled off the wall & 30 pair lead
in chopped, by labourer. Photo taken AFTER I had partly tidied it.

12 months later this lead in was dug up, because the same previous
occupant, had done a re-route of the cable 3 years prior (date on new
nearby pit), which was now only about 20mm below ground level -
backfilled over the top?. No record of where cable was, of course.

Thanks to kevinlms for the picture331 viewsOne from a block of units in Heidleberg Victoria, showing a 'Hole in the
Wall' type MDF. Normally you expect to see a plate, wooden door or
something, but this just showed missing bricks and no evidence of it
ever been any different. The lead in cables getting short on some pairs.
There were 2 such 'MDF's', one for 8 units, the other 4 units.

Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture446 viewsHad trouble finding the MDF and phone system.
Eventually found in the false ceiling.
11 way MDF to the right and 11 way SDF to the left.
The next ceiling tile is hiding the phone system and security box plus lots of other stuff.
These all were on a wall that was demolished and the builder has tossed them into the ceiling.
This is not temporary but the finished job.

Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture566 viewsThis is a brand new MDF. Whoever installed this must have thought he was doing a neat job and evened used Velcro.

Notice, things that are wrong:-
All 8 wire cables have only one pair terminated.
All 20 pair cables have only 10 pair terminated.
All jelly filled external cables come up the right side of the frame and back down the left side of the frame in the space allocated for jumper wires .

Snooze_NBN.jpg
Thanks to Cable and Data Communications for the picture770 viewsThis is a business premises. Currently he has 3 phone lines on his phone system and a fax which is four PSTN lines in total. He has applied to Telstra to convert his 4 x PSTN lines from copper to NBN.

NBN have come into his office and mounted 8 x Back-up power supplies, 7 x NTD's and 1 x Fibre housing. The left hand side wall has 4 x NTD's and the right hand side wall has 3 x NTD's .... all in the same room.

We are talking about a room 5m x 3m here.

He only needs 1 x NTD and power supply to connect his lines. What is their thinking.
