CINCINNATI - OFS, a supplier of fiber optic network products, introduced a new 432-fiber distribution cabinet (FDC), continuing its cabinet architecture strategy of compact size, easy provisioning and slack management for rapid deployment.

"Listening to the requests of our project market customers, we designed this high-density FDC to serve up to 432 homes - a good capacity for MDUs, townhome complexes, new community developments and overbuilds," says Linda Dembowski, general manager for optical connectivity solutions at OFS. "OFS continually looks for ways to help customers more cost-effectively implement FTTx passive optical networks initiatives with unique designs to minimize fiber routing congestion and increase speed of deployment."

This new FDC combines simplified fiber routing management with OFS' DirectConnect splitter, which allows incremental usage of splitters to reduce congestion and accommodates a "grow as you go" buildout. The 432 FDC can be fitted with either SC or LC/ APC connectors on the splitter leads, and it uses OFS' bend-optimized AllWave FLEX Zero Water Peak (ZWP) fiber to minimize bending loss. Additionally, the FDC can be ordered with an optional patch panel to enable easy provisioning of up to 10 customers requiring dedicated point-to-point connections.
