R&M Launches New Flexible FTTH Terminal Boxes
R&M is extending its Polaris range for small and large buildings, enabling more fiber optic connections in the most confined spaces
Polaris-Boxes accommodate everything network operators require on site for FTTH provision: drop or subscriber and patch cords, fiber or loose tube storage, modules for trays as well as splice, splitter and patch connections. In the case of the three larger models, the functional components are situated on the front and back on a pivotable fiber tray. Adapters, splice trays, splitters and fiber routing are all freely accessible. They can be inserted and extended in just a few easy steps. The overlength storage for loose tubes and customer cables is in the base of the device.
Multi-part seals make it easier to insert the cables. These are easy to insert in the slits and no longer have to be threaded through the seals – as is the case with conventional boxes. The cable entries fulfill the requirements of protection class IP65. This means the boxes can be used outdoors.
The modular principle of the boxes makes it possible to gradually adapt fiber optic supply to market requirements. FTTH suppliers can configure and change the patch, splice and splitter assembly as required and even compact them at a later date. The boxes are used to create every typical topology in the access network area. They can be used in all kinds of premises from a single dwelling unit, such as a family home, to extensive building complexes or residential estates. Within buildings, the boxes are suitable for building entry points, risers, floor distributors and optical termination outlets in offices and apartments.
