Fast, flexible indoor aggregation or demarcation enclosures for every type of fiber optic network

Charles Fiber Building Terminals (CFBT) provide flexible, compact indoor enclosure solutions for fiber aggregation or demarcation of up to 96 fiber connectors and/or 432 fiber splices with easily field upgradeable options. The flexible splicing area and bulkhead design allows for splicing or terminating all different fiber types and connectors. With a bare end or connector splitter tray (CFST), CFBT enclosures also offer the capability of a fiber distribution hub. A compact CFBT-C version is available for up to 48 fiber connectors and/or 120 fiber splices. 

CFBT are constructed out of powder-coated aluminum and offer safe and secure protection of interior adapters, splice trays and other equipment. Their light weight allows for one-person installation on interior building walls. Subscribers can be added incrementally for grow-as-you-go scalability, with intelligently designed fiber feed and drop tray arrangements, adapter panels and fiber cable management ensuring existing subscribers are undisturbed as new subscribers are added.

APPLICATIONS

CFBT cabinets are ideally suited to multi-dwelling units (MDU), cellsites, campuses, strip malls, business parks and other applications where the customer requires high-capacity fiber bandwidth for wireless backhaul, private networks or data and video broadband services. Their convenient form factor saves space in basements, huts, telecom equipment closets and other indoor locations.
