The Connect Fortress Compact 96 Fiber Distribution Hub closure is designed to provide a local convergence point in Outside Plant (OSP) or indoor High Density MDUs environments. The unit can be mounted in the Connect Fortress 12” x 12” x 41” Pedestal or Vault Assembly. The FDHC-96 houses optical splitters that propagate optical signal from the Headend or Central Office (CO) to the distribution cable network that serves fiber to the customer’s premises. Its compact modular design is an alternative solution to the traditional FDH cabinets and offers a cost-effective fiber distribution solution for FTTx deployments. This modular approach enables the service provider to incrementally grow fiber distribution capacity as their subscriber penetration rate increases.
