CFDP Fiber Interconnect Pedestals (Closed Architecture)
Closed Architecture Fiber Interconnect Pedestals – Inner Security Doors and Outer Dome Provide Two-Stage Protection
Charles Fiber Distribution Point (CFDP) Interconnect Pedestals provide pre-connectorized “interconnect panel” fiber drops to multiple broadband service customers at a fraction of the cost of Light Guide Cross-Connect (LGX) solutions. The CFDP Interconnect Pedestal is ideal for multi-tenant cell site, campus or strip mall environments where the customer requires high-capacity fiber bandwidth for wireless backhaul, private networks or data and video broadband services. With a built-in SC/APC or SC/UPC adapter bulkhead, Interconnect pedestals facilitate fast and easy provisioning of fiber services to the end customer’s fiber multiplexing equipment. Fiber drops can be turned up, moved or disconnected on an “as needed” basis, giving telecom service providers added flexibility in their efforts to provide broadband voice, data and video services to customers whose bandwidth requirements may change seasonally or due to major events.
CFDP Pedestals offer two-stage environmental protection of fiber distribution points. This two-stage protection is accomplished by housing a weather-tight interior enclosure within the confines of a non-metallic buried distribution pedestal. Together, this “enclosure within an enclosure” combination is designed to exceed Telcordia GR-771-CORE specifications and provide an unbeatable line of defense against the elements, including floods, fire, dirt, debris, insects, and corrosion.
