2017-10-12 Telephone 66 Blocks

More from FB Telephone group.  Continued from yesterday’s thread.

Yeah, those numbers sound familiar.  When we cutover to the digital PBXs, all those key systems were abandoned, and all of the hundred pair cables between bldgs were only partially used.  I pulled of most of the crossconnect wires, so there wasn’t much need for more pairs.  I just had to remember that all those bare 66 blocks were bare *for that reason*.

And then there was the time when they built an addition into the main bldg where the MPOE was.  The foundation contractor augured through the conduits and phones in other bldgs went dead.  Since they goofed and I wasn’t dealing with underground cable, they got a contractor to fix the cables.  Oh, well…
