Centrix™ System

The Centrix System is a high-density fiber management system that provides a balance of industry-leading density with innovative jumper routing. The system can be deployed in multiple applications including: central office, headend, FTTx, FTTCS, and data center.

Centrix System supports up to 4,320 LC or 2,880 SC connector ports per standard 7-ft frame/2200 mm. The frame design provides optimized routing paths for jumpers, reducing the risk of pileup or entanglement. A single jumper length for an in-frame, cross-connect network design reduces jumper inventory.

Eclipse® Hardware Family

The Eclipse hardware family is specifically designed for FTTx applications and is available with a variety of splitter solutions that can be co-located within the same hardware frame. The Eclipse hardware family can also provide a more traditional cross-connect or interconnect solution for your network.

The Eclipse hardware wall-mountable connector housings provide interconnect or cross-connect capabilities between the outside plant, riser or distribution cables, and the opto-electronics. The units are ideal in applications that require low-fiber-count distribution (school systems, public libraries, and businesses) and are available in two sizes: the 3-panel housing and the 6-panel housing.

Enhanced Management Frame

The enhanced management frame (EMF) is designed for FTTx, cross-connect, and interconnect applications. The integrated modular design allows growth and expansion of a fiber management system one frame, one module, and one fiber termination at a time. User-friendly features such as single jumper length, in-bay jumper storage, transparent modules, and multiple inter-bay routing options make this frame an ideal solution for both FTTx deployments and traditional cross-connect and interconnect applications.
