THE PROBLEM WITH HIGH DENSITY FIBER ENCLOSURES – AND THE SOLUTION

blog_image_panduit_hdflex

High density fiber enclosures can maximize the amount of active equipment in a data center by minimizing the footprint of the networking infrastructure — but there’s a problem — all that fiber in a small amount of space creates problems when changes need to be made.

That fiber is usually directly behind the enclosure making it nearly impossible to reach in and remove a cassette, and even if you can, you will most likely disturb active circuits that are near the cassette that you are trying to move. The same is true for the front side of the enclosure. The number of fiber patch cords makes it extremely difficult to pull out a drawer making it nearly impossible to manage.

With Panduit HD Flex™ Fiber Cabling System the fiber management at the rear of the enclosure is all off to the side removing the big pile of slack fiber. The trays are split, or only half as wide as the enclosure itself. This makes it easier to slide the tray in and out when they are fully populated with cassettes or adapter panels.
