BDO Fiber Interconnect Pedestals for Hardened Drops

Buried Distribution Pedestals Designed for use with Hardened Connector Fiber Drop Cables

Charles BDO Interconnect Distribution Pedestals for Hardened Fiber Drop Cables (BDO-IXC HD) provide a drop-side “interconnect panel” for supporting drop cables using the Corning brand OptiTap® hardened fiber drop connector. The BDO-IXC HD Pedestal is ideal for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network deployments as well as multi-tenant cell site, campus or strip mall environments where the customer requires high-capacity fiber bandwidth for data and video broadband services, wireless backhaul, private networks or data and video broadband services. With a built-in OptiTap-SC® adapter bulkhead, the BDO-IXC HD pedestals facilitate fast and easy provisioning of fiber services to the end customer’s equipment. Fiber drops can be turned up, moved or disconnected on an “as needed” basis; giving service providers added flexibility in their efforts to provide broadband voice, data and video services to customers whose bandwidth requirements may change seasonally or for test access purposes.
