It’s Throwback Fiber Thursday – CommScope’s effort to
re-post popular blogs from the last year that have to do with all things fiber.
Do they still hold true? Do you see any changes? We’d love to have a
conversation. Post your comments and questions below. This blog was originally posted on June 8,
We’ve all heard the three key elements in real estate
value is location, location, location. It is fascinating how similar or
identical structures, built with similar materials, can vary in value based
simply on where the structures are placed. And why is one location more
valuable or desirable? Some factors are convenience to desired resources, ease
of access, limited availability or a combination of security and stability.
CLICK TO TWEET: It's all about location in real estate. Same goes for fiber in the central office.
Let’s take this same concept into the central office/headend,
a location that has immense value. Clearly the headend and hub provide
convenience to desired resources, and have limited space availability. Additionally,
the demands for services and connectivity in this costly space continue to
grow. How can you best provide flexibility for growth in this space-constrained
Optical Distribution Frame (ODF) was designed to address these issues head-on
in four ways:
of access is provided through identical interfaces on the front and rear of the
frame modules. Gone is the classic “panel on front, rats nest in back” design.
it comes to convenience as a desired resource, flexibility is a primary
strength. Are splitters or WDM required? Patching? Simple modules are available
to provide any and every connectivity need, so mix and match what you need, anywhere
in the frame.
space is limited or simply unavailable, the NG4 can replace multiple racks through
optimized density, freeing up both rack space and valuable floor space for
additional revenue-generating equipment.
and stability are provided through unique fiber management that minimizes
opportunity to damage or disconnect unwittingly. Density is of little value
without manageable access. You have a prime location, and it is worthy of
