The FDH-288 Series Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) is designed to provide a local convergence point in an Outside Plant (OSP) environment. The FDH-288 houses optical splitters that propagate optical signal from the Central Office (CO) to the distribution cable network that serves fiber to the customers premises. Its compact and modular design offers a cost-effective fiber distribution solution with ease of installation. This modular approach enables the service provider to incrementally grow fiber distribution capacity as their subscriber penetration rate increases. SC adapter distribution panels are available in 72-port increments, thus providing 72, 144, 216 and 288 fiber capacity configurations. The service provider can purchase additional SC adapter panels after the initial installation to increase fiber distribution capacity on a pay-as-you-grow basis, offering a more cost-effective means of managing deployment costs.
