8 Ways To Clean Up Your It Room - Know Your Fiber Management Options

Mar 24, 2008
:: Why do you need the fiber management system?

Fiber management systems is usually comprised of a series of wall and rack mounted enclosures. These enclosures are designed for the distribution and management of
fiber optic cables.

They are used for patching, splicing, distribution, storing, splitting, and coupling of fiber optic signals for both single mode and multimode cables.

Now let's examine the 8 great ways to manage your fiber cables and clean up your tangled telecom closet!

1. Wall Mount Patch Panel

Patch panels provide a convenient point for patching and storing fiber optic cables. They are available for termination of backbone cables and horizontal cables at cross-connects and for interconnection between fiber optic distribution cables and equipment jumper cables.

The wall mount patch panel provides fiber optic cable routing, organization, and storage. The panels usually come equipped with a cam lock in the installer side of the panel, allowing unrestricted access to the patching side. A second cam lock is used to lock both areas of the panel.

2. Wall Mount Distribution Panel

Wall mount distribution panels are used in backbone intermediate and horizontal cross-connects,equipment rooms, building entrances, telecommunications closets, computer rooms and
customer premise applications.

3. Rack Mount Patch Panel

The Rack Mount Patch Panels can be used in both cross-connect and interconnect applications. Preterminated multi-channel fiber optic pigtails are good for reducing installation costs and installer handling.

Rack mount patch panel pigtail can be quickly routed to the splicing location, eliminating the need for performing field terminations.

4. Rack Mount Splice Panel

The rack mount splice panel incorporates splicing within the fiber optic network bays. These enclosures are used for splicing a pre-terminated patch panel pigtail to the OSP cable.

The enclosures provide ample fiber storage within a removable drawer. Each drawer can accommodate up to two splice trays for a total of 48 fusion splices.

5. Rack Mount Coupler Panel

Rack mount coupler panels are used in network distribution signal monitoring, backbone intermediate and horizontal cross-connects, unidirectional/bi-directional links, equipment rooms, building entrances, head ends, trunking applications, central offices, and computer rooms.

6. Cable Routing Guides

Complete cable routing guide kits are composed of both enhanced cable brackets and vertical cable guides. The enhanced cable brackets are designed to provide better cable management entering and exiting enclosures. They allow fiber distribution frames to increase in fiber capacity by providing the ability to add or remove patch cords without disturbing neighboring fibers. The vertical cable guides manage cables routed vertically alongside the
enclosures.

7. Splice Trays

Splice trays provide an organized means of storing and protecting completed fiber optic splices. Bend radius protection and fold over arms prevent fibers from being damaged during handling. Each 300mm tray can accommodate up to 24 fusion splices or 12 mechanical splices. Each 200mm tray can accommodate up to 12 fusion or mechanical splices.

8. Fiber Cable Clamps

Fiber cable clamp provides a unique method for securing fiber optic cables. Each cable clamp includes a multi-diameter module that fits any size cable in its range. The multi-diameter modules adapt to fit fiber optic cables by removing a few layers from its center core. This method of securing the cable provides excellent protection and axial clamping.
