FTTX Networks: Realizing More Profit in the Outside Plant
As service providers upgrade their
networks to bring fiber closer to
their customers, these often are
the first major network upgrades
the providers have made in a decade
or more. In deploying these
networks, service providers are
seeking to gain a competitive edge
while also obtaining as much efficiency
as possible without compromising
the carriers want to make sure the
networks are deployed in a way
that will minimize the complexity
of future upgrades.
Best Practices for Wireless Backhaul Network Upgrades
Traffic on wireless networks is growing dramatically, driven in large part by the growing popularity of wireless data and video. Carriers are upgrading from traditional T1 copper cable to fiber to support higher-speed connections between cell towers and high-speed backbone networks. Although the mobile operator is the ultimate user of these connections, the mobile operator rarely has landline infrastructure or owns its own cell towers, instead relying on other operators for those elements of its network.
Best Practices For Rural Broadband Deployments
Deploying fiber-based residential infrastructure (FTTX) has become a priority for rural telephone carriers and other organizations that serve rural areas. In this article, we look at best practices for rural network operators to follow when they deploy FTTX—and the critical role that a connectorized fiber distribution network can play in those deployments.
ADC’s Leading Infrastructure Solutions:
ADC’s RealFlex™ Universal Drop Cable is a single, all-in-one solution designed to meet both outdoor and indoor drop cable requirements. This innovative technology reduces the time and cost involved in storage, stocking, splicing and termination.
ADC’s high-density MPO connectors provide an easy and efficient way to pull large numbers of fibers at one time to help in the rapid deployment of a Plug-and-Play system.
ADC’s indoor fiber distribution terminals are technician-friendly, secure enclosures used to terminate feeder cables and connect to distribution cables in building entries, communication closets, computer rooms, multiple dwelling unit access points, and other indoor locations.
ADC's FPX panel utilizes an internal splicing system that creates a compact, feature-rich, high-density solution. The panels combine the unique features of vertical cable guides and angle-left/angle-right adapters, offering bend radius protection, intuitive routing and easy connector access.

ADC provides planning and implementation support for wireless network providers. Customers benefit from extensive experience, national coverage and a convenient product and service bundle.
Value-Added Modules (VAMs)
ADC offers a broad portfolio of VAM solutions that enable non-intrusive monitoring of optical traffic at any location in the wireless network. The ADC VAM system includes VAM chassis and modules that support any application, whether in the data center, MSC, RNC, BSC, or cell site.
FPL Series Fiber Optic Panels
ADC's Fiber Optic Panels provide industry-leading fiber cable protection and management and include termination, storage, and splice panels.
Fiber Optic Panels
Fiber Optical Panels provide fiber termination, splice and/or slack storage and excellent cable management in a high-density, discrete panel solution for network element, OSP, RNC and distribution network applications.
Next Generation Frames (NGF)
ADC’s NGF product line is designed to fit a variety of high-density termination, splice, and storage applications.
FiberGuide® Optical Raceway Systems
ADC’s FiberGuide system is designed to protect and route fiber optic patch cords and multi-fiber cable assemblies between network elements and optical distribution frame areas.
OmniReach® Fiber Distribution Hubs (FDH)
ADC’s FDH solutions provide for rapid connection between fiber optic cables and passive optical splitters in the outside segment of Fiber-to-the-Premises (FTTP) networks. These solutions facilitate fast service connection and reconfiguration, simplified network installations and improved field efficiencies.
OmniReach® Passive Optical Splitter Modules
The Passive Optical Splitter Modules installed in outside plant enclosures give carriers the ability to split optical signals to multiple homes or businesses.
OmniReach® Multiport Service Terminal (MST) and Hardened Drop Cables
The MST features hardened connector technology designed to withstand the rugged outside plant environment. ADC’s hardened cables provide a reliable interface for a fiber drop in the outside plant environment.
DLX Fiber Optic Connector System
This system is the next generation of plug and play connectors, adapters, converters, terminals and pre-connectorized cable designed to speed deployment and improve cost efficiencies throughout the Outside Plant (OSP) fiber network.
OmniReach® Rapid Fiber System
ADC's Rapid Fiber system is the ultimate plug-and-play solution for delivering fast, durable and reliable service for mid- and high-rise MDUs and is available in multiple configurations to meet the unique requirements of each building.
