Corning Optical Communications LLC, part of Corning Incorporated’s (NYSE:GLW) Telecommunications segment, introduces the Sealed Remote Radio Distribution Terminal (SRRDT) for tower and rooftop wireless applications. The rugged IP68-rated housing keeps out moisture and dust, combines electrical and optical management into a single housing and reduces installation time.
The SRRDT can be configured for optical-only applications, optical and surge protection, or with an optical and electrical connection. LC duplex connectors inside the housing provide optical connectivity between vertical cable assemblies and remote radio fiber optic cable assemblies (RRCA). The SRRDT has a 36-fiber capacity, enough to provide up to 18 radios two fibers each for optical support.
Surge protectors help minimize outages due to lightning strikes and power surges, and up to six remote radios can be supported. Low-cost terminal blocks are available for applications not requiring surge protection.
To learn more about the Sealed Remote Radio Distribution Terminal for wireless applications, visit Corning Optical Communications’ exhibit (booth #5208) at CTIA Wireless®, May 8-10, in New Orleans.
