The demands for
more bandwidth and higher speeds is pushing service providers to overlay their
existing fiber infrastructure as well extend fiber further into the network. Service
providers need to be fast and efficient at deploying
and architect the network to
meet future growth needs. All of this while
minimizing their capital
Innovations that make
it easier and more cost-effective for their network engineers to build critical
fiber connections for
access speeds can help reduce CapEx spending. For example, service
providers can now install higher-density
fiber distribution hubs (FDHs) with higher
optical splitter capacity and increased
express pass through capabilities. In addition, new solutions enable
providers to deploy the highest fiber
count cable for that portion of the network, which also affects CapEx. Finally,
securing permits to place this equipment in a location desirable for the
provider while still being aesthetically
pleasing to the public, may help reduce site costs.
So, how do service
providers handle increased restrictions when it comes to placing fiber
equipment in the outside plant? Since CommScope
the BNS business from TE Connectivity, we have expanded our fiber portfolio
so we can deliver more innovative solutions, solve more of our customers’
challenges, and serve more customers around the globe.
innovative fiber-to-the-hub solutions such as the FDH 4000 make FTTH
deployments faster, easier and ultimately less expensive. Designed for below-grade FTTH deployments, the FDH
4000 can also be pole or strand mounted. It addresses the need for high subscriber density and
weatherproof enclosures in a market where there is increasingly restrictive
permitting ordinances for new construction.
The FDH 4000 is
scalable up to 288 distribution ports, 12-72 feeder ports, and up to nine
splitters and the unused ports can be used as express pass throughs. The sealed
FDH 4000 offers a robust and technician-friendly solution for connecting feeder
and distribution cables via optical splitters in an FTTH network.
