Collapsed Fibre Cabling

Direct to Equipment Cabinets

Solution Summary

Complete Connect can provide a number of solutions to connect your Main, Horizontal and Equipment Distribution Areas. The solutions shown on these webpages use a combination of our 24 fibre MTP/LC cassettes mounted in both our 3U and 1U housing panels and also uses our MTP coupler plates mounted in the same 1U panels.

In the topology shown on this webpage, the Main Distribution Area (MDA) is connected directly to Equipment Areas (EAs)

Easy roll out

Each HDA can support any number of equipment racks and is usually located at end of aisle or center aisle and allows for diverse routing of primary and secondary cabling.

The cross connects within the HDA enable inter-aisle connectivity, ease of access and can reduce overall cabling distances. In the figure above the two HDAs are M310 1U MTP through coupler housing panels. Each one of these 1U panels offers up to 288 fibres (144 pairs).

Maximum use of rackspace

Each 1U panel can also hold M310 24 fibre cassettes and so other options include have a 72 LC fibre presentation with LC cross connects or a mix of LC and MTP connectivity in the HDA.

Typical application for this solution

1. For areas of high fibre count and restricted rackspace within the Equipment Cabinet (EC)
2. Main Distribution Area (MDA) can connect 12 fibres to up to 28 ECs.
3. Maintains ability for gradual network expansion
4. MDA to equipment can still have a primary and a secondary route.

Benefits

1. Provides a high level of flexibility at all points for future moves and changes
2. Expanding the network to include more cabinets is straightforward
3. Easy upgrade path to 40Gbps ethernet
4. LC connections in all equipment cabinets
5. LC connections within the MDA for maximum flexibility at the cross connection point
