Driven by high-speed data rates, the deployment of fiber has been growing. With the development of optical fiber installation, optical transmission network management has become more difficult. Many factors such as flexibility, future feasibility, deployment and management costs should be considered in fiber cabling. In order to handle a large amount of fiber at a lower cost and with greater flexibility, various fiber patch panels (ODFs) are being used extensively to connect and schedule fiber. Choosing the right fiber patch panel is the key to cable management success.
The ODF patch panel is a frame for providing cable interconnection between communication devices that can be combined with fiber attachments, fiber optic terminals, fiber optic adapters and connectors, and cables. It can also be used as a protective device to protect the fiber connection from damage. The basic functionality of the ODF provided by today's suppliers is almost the same. However, they form different shapes and specifications. Choosing the right ODF is not an easy thing.
The ODF patch panel is the most popular and comprehensive fiber distribution framework that reduces costs during deployment and maintenance and improves the reliability and flexibility of fiber-optic networks. High density ODF is the development trend of the telecommunications industry. Choosing ODF is important and complex and needs to be fully considered, including application and management. Structure, the number of fibers and protection and other factors is only the basic elements. Can meet the current requirements of the ODF and the future continue to expand and relax the challenges of expansion, without sacrificing cable management or density, only through repeated comparison and full consideration to choose.
The ODF Patch Panel integrates the fiber connections. Fiber optic connections such as splicing, fiber optic connectors in the entire transmission network is actually very sensitive, and the network stability and reliability are directly related. Therefore, a good ODF should have a protective device to prevent fiber connections from damage due to dust or stress.
