Sellers on eBay sell some random stuff.. I’ve bought job lots of FTTC Modems and other useful items.
The other day I came across a rare item, something only listed as “OpenReach Modem” in it’s description – which often means it is just another FTTC modem.
This time it turned out to be a Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) modem! along with it’s associated Battery Backup Unit (BBU).
Inside is just rechargeable batteries – quite a good idea and saves on expensive “laptop style” battery packs when the batteries reach end of life and need replacing.
My intended use of the BBU is to plug into the BBU port on an ECI FTTC modem – which I have done and works!
However it was intended to power the following BT Fibre To the Premises modem – allowing emergency calls during a power cut:
BT Item Code: 061082
Description: ECI – CPE – OPTICAL ONT
ECI Model : B-FOCuS 0-4G2PUb/e
ECI Cat No. Y33414
