Outside Plant Solution Delivers High Fiber Density in a Small Footprint

Connectivity Solutions Direct LLC (CSD), a global provider of passive optical solutions, has announced the launch of its new outside plant cabinet and splitter solution for FTTH deployments, the company said.

Engineered to provide high fiber density in a small footprint with industry-leading cable management, the CSD solution is ideal for both urban and rural service areas.

At the heart of the solution is the optical splitter module. This module contains the PLC device and the output adapters for a true pay-as-you-grow design. The output adapters are numbered from bottom to top so that the next port is always on top, unobstructed from the previous connection. The adapter ports are angled downward to facilitate cable management. The module can be mounted vertically in a cabinet or horizontally in a rack located in a central office.

The cabinet layout incorporates a 19″ rack mount design, utilizing a vertical orientation to facilitate cable management. CSD´s unique approach of terminating all the fibers and organizing them in a storage tray makes it easy to find the desired connector and turn up service. The cabinet is based on a NEMA 4X design to withstand practically any environmental condition.

Connectivity Solutions Direct is a supplier of cable assemblies and network solutions for today´s demanding enterprise markets. CSD was established to provide pricing benefits and rapid delivery times enabled by a manufacturing direct supply structure while also offering technical and design support, rapid prototyping, first article design assistance and other value-added services such as product kitting, inventory management and financing, previously only available through premium higher cost distributors.
