The economical alternative to placing Fiber Distribution Cabinets at Local Convergence Points

Charles Fiber Flexibility Pedestals

CFFP offer a scalable, low cost alternative to placing centralized split points (also known as fiber distribution hubsFDH) in the outside plant. Unlike metallic cabinets, CFFP are floodproof and can be installed in almost any location. Their compact size compared to large cabinets makes them easier to install and ideally suited to small communities and neighborhoods. Right-of-ways are no longer a concern and the units can be economically placed directly in the ground without the need for an expensive pad. CFFP are available in four sizes with up to 72, 96, 144 and 288 fiber counts.

Product  Features

  • Flexible placement is enabled by the proven environmental protection of the flood-proof Pedlock series of non-metallic pedestals. The CFFP can be placed in flood prone areas if needed where cabinets cannot be placed
  • Economically installed directly in the ground, because there is no need for expensive pads or concerns for getting right of ways for cabinet placement
  • 360 access for fiber organization allows freedom of movement for craftsperson so fiber housekeeping is not a chore
  • A small profile is more aesthetically pleasing when placed in neighborhoods and allows for lower freight and storage costs
  • Sizes are configurable with smaller fiber counts to economically optimize fiber hub size with neighborhood
  • Vault mount and stake mount options allows placement directly on splicing vault or more economical placement in the ground next to the vault
  • Fiber pass-throughs are available for secure circuits or for the flexibility to extend feed fibers to additional CFFP units for expanding neighborhoods
  • Protective locking cover for back of connectors gives protection while allowing easy access for cleaning without dangerously moving fiber bulkhead
  • Organization is optimized with specially designed 3-way bend controls so that minimum bend requirements are met no matter how the fibers are wrapped around them
  • The CFFP is pre-stubbed with feed and distribution cables that are factory tested
  • One splitter module fits alls CFFP sizes for ordering and stocking ease

  • Splitter module outputs are optimally designed for CFFP units. Minimizing leg lengths makes fiber housekeeping easier
  • A parking lot for 64 splitter ends is provided. The splitter outputs are placed in integrated parking modules for quick and easy storage. There are even locations to store connector dust covers

Patch and Splice Option

A CFFP Patch and Splice Pedestal is available for small hub applications, eliminating the need for a splice closure and grade level box.  See CFFP Ordering Guide for more information.

Vault-Mount Option

CFFP are available in a vault-mount configuration, ideal for locations that require splice case or slack cable storage at the same location as the hub placement.
