Three core application spaces for Centrix™ System Solutions

Three core application spaces for Centrix™ System Solutions

Central Office or Head End

  • Cross connect frame for jumper connections between indoor/outdoor cable, distribution fiber/active electronics, and distribution fiber/access fiber
      - Accommodates splicing on frame with easy to use, high capacity splice cassettes
      - Pre-stubbed housings simplify off frame splicing installation
  • Top of rack panel for port replication of active electronics with either patch panel cassettes or MTP/MPO cassettes

Point of Presence (PoP) and “Meet Me” Rooms

  • Cross connect frame for managing multiple carrier connections
  • Access fiber can be spliced directly in the Centrix frame or spliced in from an Optical Splice Enclosure (OSE) using pre-stubbed housings

Space constrained huts and hub sites

  • Where physical footprint limitations require a high density solution
