AFL expands capacity of OSP fiber distribution cabinet
AFL has increased the capacity of its IDEAA Exterior Distribution Cabinet (EDC) to provide management of up to 864 fibers for point-to-multipoint, point-to-point and WDM distributions.
AFL announced that it has increased the capacity of its IDEAA Exterior Distribution Cabinet (EDC) to provide management of up to 864 fibers for point-to-multipoint, point-to-point and WDM distributions.
With use of the company's IDEAA splitter modules, fiber management, routing and termination is enhanced and deployment costs are lowered, asserts AFL. Additionally, the company says the new cabinet's innovative jumper routing capability allows for increased manageability in customer moves, additions or adjustments, as the carrier network scales and changes.
“The IDEAA splitter platform has been well-received by customers across North America and as far as the Middle East,” comments William Miller, associate product manager of OSP Connectivity at AFL. “Until now, the IDEAA EDC has been limited to 432 fiber distributions or less. Release of the 864 fiber EDC allows our customers to continue to utilize the feature-rich EDC in more fiber-dense areas of their networks.”
AFL’s IDEAA Exterior Distribution Cabinet provides flexible pad and pole-mounting options to accommodate deployment in convenient locations and its smaller frame is unobtrusive in residential areas, notes the company. Available in three different sizes, each model of the IDEAA Exterior Distribution Cabinet provides dual-door entry for easier access and fiber/module management.
