For a moment, let’s consider three
important characteristics that make a successful
service provider in today’s competitive global market:
- Lower operation costs
- Greater reliability and flexibility
in service offerings
- Quicker deployment of new and
Service providers continue to build
out high-bandwidth networks around the world. These networks use a great
deal of fiber connectivity—the
medium that meets both their bandwidth
and cost requirements.
Deploying fiber is not enough. A successful fiber network also requires a well built infrastructure
based on a strong fiber cable and connectivity
management system. Management of the fiber connectivity has a direct impact
on network reliability, performance and cost. It also affects network
maintenance and operations, as well as the ability to reconfigure and expand
the network, restore service and implement new services quickly.
A strong fiber connectivity system provides bend radius protection, cable
routing paths, cable accessibility and physical protection of the fiber
network. If these concepts are executed correctly, the network can deliver its full competitive advantages.
All four aspects directly affect the
network’s reliability, functionality, and operational cost. Five new courses were
launched by the CommScope
Infrastructure Academy covering different fiber connectivity options and how they can be deployed and
- The FOSC
450 Fiber Splice and FOSC
600 Fiber Splice closures are used in many applications, including
direct burial, below grade in hand-holes and man-holes, above grade in
pedestals and aerial poles and stands.
- The Fiber
Distribution Hub (FDH) 3000 hub and products organize and
administer fiber optic cables and passive optical splitters, providing
rapid connectivity in outside plant networks.
- This Fiber-to-the-Premises
(FTTP) plug-and-play solution includes the multiport service terminal
(MST) that are environmentally-sealed outside plant plug-and-play fiber
optic terminals providing a point for connecting subscriber drop cables.
- The Optical
Distribution Frame (ODF) solution delivers the crucial elements of
fiber cable management. Applications include central offices, data
centers, switching centers, cell sites and more.
you “think fiber”, you need to
start thinking about your fiber knowledge. That’s where the CommScope
Infrastructure Academy can help.
