ADC’s OmniReach™ Indoor
Fiber Distribution Hub 3000
(FDH 3000i) series cabinets are
designed to organize and administer fiber optic cables and
passive optical splitters in an inside plant environment typically
found at the multiple dwelling
unit (MDU). These cabinets
are used to connect feeder and
distribution cables via optical splitters in a fiber-to-the-premises
(FTTP) network application. The FDH product provides a vital
cross-connect/interconnect interface for optical transmission signals
at the MDU.
The FDH 3000i hardware and components support the architectural flexibility of FTTP, allowing fast and reliable interconnection
between equipment and cables. The cabinet provides mechanical
protection for cables, splices, connectors and passive optical splitters.
In addition, the product is designed to accommodate a range of fiber
counts including 72, 144, 288 and 432 fiber terminations, and supports factory installation of pigtails, fanouts and splitters. The FDH
3000i cabinet is designed for front access via a swing frame configuration. www.adc.com

Since your content and quality of service are only as good as the fiber that the content is being transmitted on, proper installation and
maintenance must be a consideration. The innovative new Network
Master MT9090A Fault Locator from Anritsu is designed to quickly and cost-effectively verify correct fiber installation of short fiber
spans such as those used in FTTx drop cables. It features very high
resolution with the ability to see within a few feet of the test set, plus
a single wavelength and fixed testing parameters to ensure accurate
results regardless of skill level. The user interface simplifies testing
even further through its innovative wizard, which returns an easyto-read PASS/FAIL status with areas of concern highlighted.

Hitachi enables end-toend triple play services
from the source to the subscriber for service providers, municipalities and developers looking to
better serve their customers by delivering high-bandwidth applications using GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) technology,
the highest-speed standards-based access platform available.
The Hitachi AMN1220 is an ITU-T standards-compliant GPON
product family that supports the economical delivery of RF/IP
video, VoIP/POTS voice, and high-speed data services. Hitachi was
the first vendor to place a full-rate GPON system into commercial
service (Bandon, Oregon; June, 2006).
The end user is where the service provider ultimately earns revenue.
And when subscribers enjoy a positive experience, they tend to remain loyal and are more likely to purchase higher-tier services.
In addition to the GPON system, Hitachi can provide a full turnkey
solution, from initial planning and technology assessment and multiple video solutions to the HDTV in the consumer’s living room.
Solutions are available for residential and business applications.
