The FOX Solution® SlimBox® Drop System – Where Simplicity and Versatility Meet to Provide a Smarter FTTH Connection

The OFS FOX Solution SlimBox Drop System provides a versatile solution from a single platform for making the FTTH connection to MDU (Multifamily Dwelling Unit) or SFU (Single Family Unit) subscribers. The SlimBox Drop Terminal can support up to 16 FOX Solution  Drop Cable Assemblies enabling speedy plug and play connections to customers – with standard non-proprietary connectors all sealed inside a single enclosure. A variety of compatible FOX Solution Drop Cable Assemblies are available – including EZ-Bend® 4.8 mm assemblies enabling sharp unmanaged bends for even fast installations where space is at a premium. The terminal can alternatively be configured for fusion splicing or OFS field installable mechanical connectors. It may also be provided with either two 1X8 splitters or a single 1X16 splitter to support distributed or cascaded passive optical networks in addition to functioning as a drop terminal.

Connection to distribution cables can be either through a factory installed tether spliced to a closure, or the distribution cable be routed through the terminal and directly spliced to drop pigtails within the SlimBox – avoiding the cost of the additional splice closure required by other competitive drop solutions. The SlimBox Drop Terminal may be pole, pedestal, or aerial mounted and meets GR-3120 for reliable performance. It is easily enterable and re-sealed through an innovative clamshell clamping system, and fusion splices are isolated in a separate chamber from the subscriber drop connections.

With multifunctional support using standard connectors – simplicity and versatility meet in the FOX Solution SlimBox Drop System.
