Innovative Fiber Distribution Cabinets Specifically Designed for FTTX Splitter Applications

Product Description

Designed to serve 288 homes, the ORBITAL™ FDC 288 features OFS' unique splitter module incorporating full spectrum, low loss PLC splitters, while being fitted with low loss, high performance LC and MPO Connectors. OFS' MPO Fanout Jumpers are easily connected from the splitter modules to the subscriber ports, and use OFS’ bend-optimized AllWave® FLEX Zero Water Peak (ZWP) Fiber to minimize bending loss. In a dramatically improved fiber distribution design, the ORBITAL™ FDCs route all subscriber fibers from the splitter modules to a central cabinet, then to subscriber ports arranged in a circular array surrounding the cabinet.

  • Easier and faster parking of unused splitter connections:
    • The ORBITAL™ FDCs' modular design allows incremental usage of splitters that helps to reduce the amount of congestion inside the cabinet
    • Extensive and easily-accessible parking - up to 77% less parking required due to MPO fanout. Please note this: when a fanout is added for a single subscriber, 7 connectors must be parked. When a splitter module is added for a single subscriber, 31 connectors must be parked
    • They can maximize splitter and OLT usage
  • More environmentally friendly cabinet size:
    • Their small cabinet sizes are less visually disruptive to the environment and surrounding areas
    • Some of the smallest cabinet volumes and heights available today in the market
  • Excellent optical performance:
    • Best-in-class LCA connectors with lowest loss
    • They use thermally stable PLC devices from Furukawa Electric
  • Available with more options:
    • Allows for pad or pole mounting - both easy to handle, place and use
    • Choose the cable
    • Choose the connector
    • Over provisioned feeder can be added
  • Easier Splitter Upgrade:
    • Splitter module with connector interface allows for potential splitter/optical path upgrades with minimal effort and/or disruption
  • Unique Integrated Cross/Inter-Connect System:
    • Unique optional patch panels enable easy provisioning to up to 24 businesses (LC ganged adapter) requiring dedicated connections
