CommScope’s sealed fiber distribution hub (FDH) 4000 solves the challenges presented by aesthetic ordinances and equipment-size restrictions, which make it difficult to secure permits in FTTx deployments. The company says the FDH 4000 “is designed for superior performance in any environment. Its small, compact size minimizes visual impact for discrete applications.”
The company further explains that the hub leverages CommScope’s hardened fiber-optic closure technology, offering a robust and technician-friendly solution for connecting feeder and distribution cables via optical splitters in FTTx networks. It is scalable up to 288 distribution ports, and unused ports can be used for pass-through applications.
The FDH 4000 provides an air- and water-tight seal that protects against flooding and fungus. The hub can be installed in a vault, hand hole, or aerially via pole or strand.
