"As a leader in cabinet enclosures for wireline VDSL networks, CommScope’s deep experience and expertise will deliver great value and benefits to fiber network operators, too."

Telecom service providers deploying fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) networks worldwide now have a new fiber enclosure supplier. CommScope, Inc., a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, is launching a new line of fiber distribution hub (FDH) cabinets that consist of four fiber count configurations: 144, 288, 576 and 864.

These are the first fiber distribution cabinets that CommScope is bringing to market, but we think they already offer significant benefits in ease of installation, resulting in lower installation costs, said Lindsay Allen, director of product line management, Cabinet Solutions. As a leader in cabinet enclosures for wireline VDSL networks, CommScopes deep experience and expertise will deliver great value and benefits to fiber network operators, too.

The CommScope FDH cabinet line provides for total management hardware using a simple front access designtermination, interconnection, and splitting are located in one compartment. Another unique feature of the FDH cabinets is the open door alarm system. Service providers are immediately notified in the case of unauthorized access to the cabinet as soon as the door is opened. Technicians are dispatched, who can quickly assess and remedy the situation before damage is irreparable.

Trial models are available now, with general availability planned for later this year.

Our goal was to provide a line of FDH cabinets that contained a simple fiber management solution and passive door alarm feature currently lacking in competitive designs, said Allen.

CommScope will display its new fiber distribution cabinets, as well other cabinet solutions for the telecommunications industry, at the NXTcomm08 trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 16-19, in booth #SU6211.
