BOS Headend Optical Splitter
The BOS Headend Optical Splitters are a family of components that enable an operator to share headend equipment over a number of subscribers by dividing one optical signal to a number of output ports. It is an ideal solution for Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) and Passive Optical Network (PON) deployments where subscribers are close to the Headend, and it is a cost-effective alternative to utilizing an outside plant splitter enclosure.
Mounted in a standard 19” rack or LGX® chassis, the BOS headend splitter contains a high performance, Planar Light- wave Circuit (PLC) that supports a wavelength range from 1260 to 1620 nm. This feature makes it fully compatible with RFoG and PON wavelengths. The PLC splitter inputs and outputs are brought to the face of the 1 RU rack-mounted enclosure and are terminated with SC/APC connectors and matching adapters. A small ledge on the face of the enclosure protects fiber jumpers terminating on the device and helps with management of the fiber cables.
The components of the splitter module are compliant with Telcordia GR-1209, GR-1221, and GR-326 standards assuring excellent optical performance and high reliability. To accommodate a wide variety of architecture implementations, the splitter family is comprised of 1x8, 1x16, and 1x32 devices.
