Fiber Optic Termination Box for FTTH Applications


The fiber optic termination box provides a cost effective solution for FTTH applications. Today, some manufacturers offer this type of enclosure with pre-installed fiber splitters, adapters, splice trays or flexible cable assemblies, which help reduce installation time and cost and meet different customer requirements. Today this post is mainly focused on the basics of the splitter termination box.

Fiber optic termination box generally refers to box-shaped fiber optic management products used to protect and distribute fiber optic links in FTTH network. Generally, the fiber optic box includes the fiber optic patch panels and the fiber optic terminal box. The fiber optic patch panel is larger, the fiber optic termination box is smaller. Actually, there are too many fiber optic boxes and fiber management devices, they are hard to count, many manufacturers will make the fiber optic boxes according to their own design and may give the fiber optic boxes different names and model numbers.

Fiber optic box panels can be pre-installed with various types of fiber optic adapters; These adapters are the interface through which the fiber box will connect external devices. The smallest size fiber optic box, the terminal box, is also used for fiber optic distribution and organization. Our typical fiber terminal box has 12 ports or 24 ports, with a size of 270mm * 137mm * 45mm. The fiber optic box is made of cold rolled steel and the surface of the box uses the soft blown plastic technique. This type of fiber optic box is usually installed with FC or ST adapters in the panel. This fiber terminal box could be installed on the wall or horizontal line.

Fiber Terminal Boxes
In addition to fiber patch panels, fiber terminal boxes are also available for fiber distribution and organization. While typical fiber terminal boxes are with 12 ports or 24 ports, 8 outlets, 36 ports, 48 ​​ports, and 96 fiber ports are now available in the markets. They are often installed with FC or ST adapters in the panel, either on the wall or in a horizontal line.

Based on the design, FTB can be divided into wall mount type and rack mount type.

Wall mount fiber termination boxes are designed for pre-terminated cables, field installation of connectors, or field splicing of flexible cables. They offer an ideal solution for the construction of entrance terminals, telecommunications cabinets, main cross-connections, computer rooms and other controlled environments.

According to the design, FTB can be divided into wall-mount type and rack-mount type. Wall mount fiber termination boxes are designed for pre-wired cables, field installation of connectors, or field splicing of pigtails. They offer an ideal solution for the construction of entrance terminals, telecommunications cabinets, main cross-connections, computer rooms and other controlled environments.

Also, in terms of installation environment, there are indoor FTB and outdoor FTB.

The indoor fiber termination box acts as the transition point between the raised cable and the horizontal cable, thus giving operators much more flexibility when handling cables. Additionally, the inner FTB allows space for over-length and terminated fibers, as well as fiber splicing.

Outdoor fiber terminal boxes are sealed enclosures to protect FTTX networks. They are also designed for fiber splicing, termination, and cable management.

Features and Benefits
The fiber optic splitter termination box enables service providers to accelerate their deployments more effectively and is an ideal solution when deploying networks in FTTH applications. And it offers greater efficiency within different FTTX network applications. With a compact solution for wall mounting, these termination boxes provide significant space savings while maintaining manual access to connectors. The following are the features and benefits of the fiber optic splitter termination box implementation.

Provide a small footprint for splitting, splicing and termination and are rated for environmental or outdoor use.

Available in various types, each box can be equipped with a splice tray allowing for an input splicing option.

Accept standard plc splitter or fiber optic splitter can be easily added after the termination box has been installed. And it can accommodate 1 × 4, 1 × 8, 1 × 16, 1 × 32 fibers, up to 64 fibers.

Its small size and flexible mounting options offer easy integration into cell sites and cabins, providing on-demand capacity for wireless backhaul applications.

Offer an economical solution for applications where larger FDHs (fiber distribution centers) may not be feasible.

Conclution
Fiber termination box today plays an indispensable role in communication network field with higher reliability and flexibility. The continued expansion of broadband networks and the resulting configuration of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructures is pushing network organizers to adopt powerful planning and management systems. The fiber optic splitter termination box is a small part of this system. FOCC can provide comprehensive solutions, any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at sales@telhua.com
