Various Types of Fiber Optic Terminal Box Solutions Are Available to Meet Different Needs!

FTTX is a generic term for any broadband network architecture that uses optical fiber to provide the local loop for last-mile telecommunications. Because optical cables can carry more data than copper, especially over long distances, the copper telephone network established in the 20th century has been replaced by optical fiber.

FTTX network structure is now widely used in remote telecommunications. When using fiber optic pigtail in FTTX networks, it is important to protect fiber terminals because fiber joints are fragile and susceptible to external contamination. In response to this problem, devices called fiber optic terminal box are created to place fiber terminals in a more secure place. There are also various types of fiber termination box solutions. This article provides detailed information about them to help you choose the right device for your project.

Our fiber optic terminal box enables the mechanical splicing and distribution of optical fibers for FTTH networks.

Ⅰ. Features of the fiber optic terminal box

Fiber optic terminal box provides a straightforward way to manage incoming and outgoing cables. The bending radius of the fiber is firmly protected inside the fiber optic terminal box, thus ensuring signal integrity.

Fiber termination box is a compact device that provides easy access for installation, maintenance and subsequent termination. Fiber quantity can vary to meet project requirements. When installed on different occasions, the fiber termination box also has different structures.

Ⅱ. Classifications of the fiber optic terminal box

1. Wall mounted fiber optic terminal box

As can be seen from the name, this type of Fiber Optic Terminal Box can be wall-mounted. The box includes a front door, 4 LC/APC SX adapters and tail fiber, as well as a connector tray that can be mounted inside the box. It is commonly used for building entry terminals, pre-connector ZED cables, cross connections, field connector installations, telephone cabinets, tail fiber connectors, CATV and computer room applications.

2. Rack type fiber optic terminal box

Rack-mounted fiber optic terminal box can be rack-mounted to be installed in the rack-mounted unit, including 19 inches and 21 inches. Unlike wall-mounted boxes, rack-mounted boxes have sliding rails for the front and back doors, while cassettes can be fixed internally. The number of cassettes tapes depends on the capacity. Rack-mounted boxes provide an interface between external factory cables and transmission equipment.

3. Optical fiber spillter box

Shunting, splicing and terminating can be done in a small number of fiber spillter boxes for indoor and outdoor use. Fiber spillter box like our FTTH 1 8 plc splitter box is the best solution for network deployment in the client. It can distribute the cable after the splitter is installed, or it can pull out the cable by direct or cross connection. The standard plug and play distributer is particularly suitable for use inboxes.

We design different types of fiber optic terminal box for metal and plastic for different applications. Customizing solutions is one of our strengths and we can provide the most suitable solutions for different projects.
