Cross Connect Units

The Humble Pillar is an icon of the Australian telecommunications network. It has a long and noteworthy history, existing in the network for more than
half a century. It has protected a critical communications network against all of Australia’s harsh environmental conditions and has a working installed base of more than 90,000 units. It supports the majority of all telecommunication services to all customers in Australia.

The basic function of the pillar was to provide a sealed enclosure where cross connection of copper services could be managed close to the customer. Warren & Brown Technologies are the leading Australian manufacturer of Copper pillars and also provide a full range of accessories and spares for 900 pair and 1800 pair units.

CROSS CONNECT MODULAR PILLAR, 1800 PAIR

Part Number: TC2722-1800


Pillars or cross connect units are used to provide an accessible distribution/break-down point in the copper cable network between the exchange and the customer. They are fed by main copper cables from the exchange that in turn feed smaller size outgoing customer distribution cables. The connected copper cable pairs are used to provide a telecommunication service to customers.
The 1800 pair pillar will typically feed a distribution area of up to 600 customers (maximum).

The pillar provides an access and test point in the network as the customer circuit can be tested both back to the exchange and forward to the customers residence, if ever the line develops a fault. Typically, a ratio of about 1:2 is provided between main exchange pairs and customer distribution pairs of copper cables.
