Phase 1 Training - On Site

23 September 2008 @ Sri Gombak

I was placed in the Access Network Development Unit [AND] of TM Sri Gombak. They're in charged of planning and implementing the whole telephone network in Malaysia.

There was a technician who need to survey the site before installing the cables. He brought along me and ChiaPoh.


We went to 3 different branches of Hong Leong Bank around the Ampang area.


What they did was basically to see how they can connect the fiber optic cables from the outside to the inside of the bank.

So, we went into the little server rooms behind the bank counters where not authorized people are not allowed to go in.


The pic above shows the server room to put the fiber equipments to be jointed to the cables outside the bank [pic below].


After the survey has been done, the technician will do a report and the installation of the equipemtns and cables will be done.



24 Septemeber 2008 @ Sungai Buloh

On the next day, all the trainees were splited again to follow different teams. Me and Razul followed Haji, who brought us around Sungai Buloh to check the cabinet beside the roads.


He's the only one that drives a Toyota Hilux, others drive kancil or van only...


That's the TM Cabinet [pic above]. Too bad this is locked and he can't do anything about it. We head on to another cabinet.


Haji showed us the inside of the cabinet and explained on the parts. As we're still new to this, there're still a little confusion to which connects to which and which is what.


This [pic above] are some fiber optic wires. Click on it to enlarge.

He drove us to another area as there're reports that the fan inside the cabinet broke down. So he has to check it and report back to his superiors.


When we went back to the exchange [the old TM building], Haji showed us some devices and parts.

The first one [pic below] is used to test the fiber optic cable. The one on the right is the source of light [fiber optics sends light signals] while the one on the left detects the signals.


Then he showed us some little things that join 2 copper cables together. There're various sizes to join different wires.


3 different sizes of joints

I was lucky I get to go out with the technicians so often. It was more interesting to be able visit or survey the sites rather than sitting down doing nothing in the office. Billy, out.

Hi.. I see that U are training at the TM. Maybe U know about the "own wiring" for the streamyx installation so that there be less disconnections. My friend ask me to apply for the "own wiring" but she said that I need to pay extra Rm300+.. What do you think about this matter?

Billy said...

[bizmind]
hi.. Yes I'm now training in TM, but I'm training at the technical side for the past 1 month only.

I'm sorry I can't help you on your query. Maybe you can call up TM Net to help you out. =)
