Where can I find a diagram showing components of fiber network?
I requested fiber service when I discovered it was available. I asked about it after an AT&T U-verse Field Ops tech knocked on my door a few days ago to ask for access to our yard to help install for someone else in the neighborhood (I thought our account settings limited information AT&T can share with others, but apparently it limits what AT&T can share with us instead). It seemed logical to me that the infrastructure was already functional, especially due to the fact that I found out about it the way I did. However, our installation tech had to bring in an engineer because of deficient optical signal before performing any installation steps at all, and the engineer had to call in a dig crew (which hasn't started work yet), so I'm assuming they pretty much have to start from scratch on the infrastructure from the last stage (GPON?) at least. I'm referring to the rectangular surface mount plate on the ground in our neighbors' yard as the GPON. Is that correct, or is that the node? Is there a diagram available online that I can refer to for an explanation of the various components? Our installation tech mentioned installing a electrical appliance box called ONC (if I remember correctly) inside the home from which copper will be fed back outside to run to the gateway drop. Apparently being the guinea pig for our nearest shared optical distribution point, I'd like to learn a little more about the system. Thanks.
