Fibre optic duct closures requirement of Nokia Poland

1. General requirements

Fiber optic duct closures must be suitable for installation in cable ducts in the Nokia network. The closures must be able to connect cables of loose tube construction with G652/G657 fibers while maintaining an appropriate bending radius.

2 Application table

The following table in Table 1.1 shows the minimum requirements for closure configurations in the different application variants.

Table 1.1 - Minimum requirements for the configuration of the 1FCP closure in different application variants.

Location Splitter / Patching 48F 72F 96F 144F
Mounting in Cable ducts No Splitter YES YES YES YES
Two Splitter(1:8 or 1:4) YES YES    
No patching field YES YES YES YES
Patching field YES      

 

3. Total closure capaciy

The closure must be able to do so:

  • making of 48/72/96/144 fiber optic splices,
  • Installation up to 2 optical splitters (1:8 or 1:4) in a mini-metal-box enclosure,
  • Mounting of at least 18 SC/APC adapters.

 

4. Construction

The closures should be of multiple access design. The design must be such that it is possible to integrate with the cable overlength frame. The closure must be equipped with a minimum:

  • 2 round ports for cable entry with diameters from 8 mm to 15 mm, mechanically or thermally sealed,
  • 1 oval (double) port for cable entry with diameters from 5 mm to 15 mm without cutting through cable tubes, mechanically or thermally sealed,
  • 8 round ports from 5 mm to 8.2 mm mechanically sealed.

The closure must have a fixture for the cable strength element, which prevents the cable from being pulled out. The construction of the closure must allow it to be installed in a cable container with a room for closure with holders for a 275 mm diameter and 385 mm long.

 

5 Basic closure equipment

Each closure should be equipped with:

  • splice trays for a minimum of 72 splices,
  • space for a minimum of 2 splitters in a mini-metal-box enclosure (1:4, 1:8),
  • cable port seals,
  • Cable ties,
  • bracket for fixing the cable strength element,
  • the necessary screws and mounting tapes,
  • closure mounting bracket for mounting the closure on the manhole wall.

 

6. Additional closure accessories

Each closure should be expandable with the following elements:

  • additional splice trays enabling the expansion of the closures to 144 splices or a bracket for the assembly of at least 18 patching ports,
  • splicing H/S protectors,
  • Cable overlength frame with mounting bracket integrated in the closure, enabling installation in the manhole,
  • SC/APC adapters.
  •  

7. Temperature range

  • Installation: from -10OoC to +60oC
  • Transport and storage: from -40oC to +70oC
  • Operation: -30oC  to +70oC

 

8. Functional requirements
