    If your premise has structured data cabling installed, NetLink Trust recommends that the Termination Point (TP) be installed in the utility closet or a location that meets the following requirements:

     

    • Has access to an electrical point
    • Structured cabling RJ45 (min Cat 5 cabling) connects the utility closet or selected location to other areas such as the living room, study room and bedroom
    • Has access to a TP after installation

     

    For premises without structured data cabling, NetLink Trust recommends that the TP be installed in the living room next to the Cable TV / MATV point with an electrical point so that it can support data, video and TV services.

     

    If you choose to install the TP at a location that does not meet the given recommendations, NetLink Trust will charge a fee for subsequent requests to relocate the TP.

    The Termination Point (TP) will be installed by the building developer or building owner during the building’s construction. The location of the TP is stipulated in the COPIF 2013.

    Based on our experience, 15 metres is adequate for the installation of fibre to the living room for most homes. NetLink Trust will install the required optical fibre length based on the confirmed location of the Termination Point. A fee of SGD33 per additional 5-metre block (excl. GST) will be charged if the total optical fibre run exceeds 15 metres.
