Fibre Optic Patch Cords between TP and ONT for Fibre Optics Singapore

Singaporeans are having their homes wired up by fibre optics and the fibre optics point ended at their homes with a TP (termination point). Then an ISP will come and link up the TP with an ONT which then provides access to the internet…

So what happened when you placed the TP (termination point) in the wrong place (usually living room) and you wanted the ONT in another place (sometimes study room, sometimes bedroom, sometimes store room but never a toilet..).

The solution is a fibre optic patch cord. It used to be extremely expensive but as time and volume goes, it has gone down to a reasonable price.

Recently I got one for a friend through an online Singapore store: Delon Fibre. Placed an order on Saturday and got my product nicely wrapped on Wednesday.

  1. Hi mate,

    So let me guess. From this article, the fibre TP is connected direct to the patch panel and then it goes to your various devices. Is that how you set it up?

    Maybe you can do a section on your network topology?

    I have set-up fibre for my flat. The TP is in the living room, next to the TP of the Starhub cable TV point. The cost of fibre is attractive nowadays but what is stopping me from subscribing is, as your article rightly put it, is the location of the TP in the living room. I do not want to placed too many devices in the living room.

    At the moment, I am using starhub cable modem for my home network. The TP for this is in the living room. But somehow, the previous owner split this and placed another TP through the party wall between the living room and the study behind it. So the second TP is used for network purposes and the 1st is for cable TV.

    I would want to maintain the same set-up for fibre. So as you can see, your articles on patch panels and making Cat-5 cables is most useful to me. Its giving me ideas on connecting to the fibre TP outside, albeit much neater.

    What do you think?

  2. actually this is not my place but my relative's place..

    yes. the box was set up at the main door side. So what we did was this.. we bought the cable above (and also those white plastic trunking.. you can buy very slim ones like those telephone ones as the TP cable is very slim).. so we then plug on end to the box at the entrance and slowly (very slowly) route the cable through the living room to the study room. The cable is housed in the trunking and the trunking has double sided tape to paste against the wall (no hammering ! :p).

    Once it reached the study room it is connected to the M1 ONT and then from a short CAT6 cable from the ONT to a TP Link Router. From there, we have wireless and then also we set up a link to the living room Samsung TV via the CAT6 connections (we need to drill a hole in the wall between study room and living room to run the CAT6 and in both ends, we have CAT6 connectors).

    Hope that make sense 🙂
