Optical Distribution Frames

Optical Distribution Frames (ODFs) are integrated components in any fiber management system. They are available as rack-mounted units for 14”, 19” or ETSI racks, or as wall-mounted cabinets. The ODFs are available in a range of configurations depending on application:

Pre-terminated ODFs with stub cables are pre-installed with connectors and cable for quick and easy installation. Units with pre-terminated cables offer advantages such as faster installation, resulting in shorter time to revenue as well as guaranteed quality and performance. Several cable options are available. ODFs with stub micro cables are especially suitable for high packing density applications such as the Multifiber Management System (MMS).

Pre-terminated ODFs, with micro cable on cardboard drums are delivered attached to a drum with longer lengths of micro cable, eliminating time consuming and costly splicing of cables in the central office. This is also a preferred option in combination with the Multifiber Management System.


ODFs for cable installation are intended for installation and termination of all kinds of fiber optic cables. The units are suitable for splicing pigtails or fiber ribbon fanouts as well as field-installable connectors. The ODFs are delivered empty, allowing the customer to order the pigtails/fanouts, adapters, splice protection sleeves and installation kit that best suit the specific application. The units can also be installed with pre-connectorized cable assemblies.

 

ODFs for air blown fiber are designed to handle termination of microducts for air blown fibers. They are typically used in FTTx applications when blowing fibers directly to a central office or other distribution point. The air blown technology enables incremental installation when needed.
