Re: Are they talking about ONE home powering the node?

if you want simplicity to run a distributed supply for these units its not difficult if you say have 20 subscribers back feed over the copper as a phantom 48V Open circuit at 500ma constant current supply which would give you 24Watts per cabinet feed or 500 watts

if there is excess it will reduce the current demand on the share depending on the line resistance the maximum demand would be 24 watts could be less
