Is it possible to use a NTAK11 cabinet as a wall mounted Fiber Remote Cabinet ???? The Card label strip on the shelf shows in the first location SSC/FBR rcvr but when I have tried it with a NT1P62 Fibre Peripheral Controller card, it will not do a self test and initiallize. One resource tells me it has a completely different backplane than a NT1P70 cabinet. But if the label shows a card can be in the slot, I would think it should work.

Is this true, can I use it as a fiber remote shelf??
In trouble-shooting, I have tried 3 different cards and tested my fiber path several times, but can not get it to initialize.

I'm guessing that you have the Main cabinet slots 1,2,3 & 4 to 6 (1 slot)?.

All the best

I found it is not for a remote shelf... that slot is for the fiber card to make it an expansion cabinet

The NT1P62 card is for a 61-81, not to be used in an OPT11 at all
