DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATION
This section provides a description of the OmniReach DLX Mini Multiport Service Terminal
(MST) plus basic product application information.
1.1
Multiport Service Terminal
The OmniReach Multiport Service Terminal (MST) is an environmentally-sealed, Outside Plant
(OSP) fiber optic terminal that provides a point for connecting subscriber drop cables to the
network. Designed for Fiber To The Premises (FTTP) applications, the MST consists of a twopiece plastic housing equipped with multiple optical ports. An attached optical cable assembly
is connected internally to the optical ports. The DLX-MST may be ordered with four, six, eight,
or twelve fiber ports. All port configurations use the same style housing. Figure 1 shows the
various types of MST’s that are available.
4-PORT
6-PORT
8-PORT
12-PORT
23544-A
Figure 1. Typical Mulitport Service Terminals
The MST uses ADC DLX adapters for the optical ports. A DLX adapter consists of a standard
SC adapter that is enclosed within a protective housing. The housing provides sealed
environmental protection for the adapter. The opening to each optical port is sealed with a
threaded dust cap that prevents the entry of dirt and moisture. A standard 216B security tool
(accessory) can be used to remove the dust cap. The MST optical ports accept subscriber drop
cables that are terminated with DLX hardened connectors from ADC.
Within the MST enclosure, the MST optical cable assembly is connected internally to the
optical ports. The cable assembly exits the MST enclosure through a sealed opening located at
the bottom of the enclosure. The DLX MST may be ordered with a flat dielectric cable
(toneable or non-toneable). Depending on the option ordered, the cable end may be stubbed for
splicing or terminated with a hardened multi-fiber connector (MFC).

ADCP-96-159 • Issue 3 • 11/2010
The length of the MST cable may range from 50 to 2,000 feet (15.2 to 609.6 meters). When the
cable is over 300 feet in length, the cable is coiled on a spool and the MST enclosure is secured
to the top of the spool. The cable may be unreeled from the spool using a roller reel with a
vertical arbor. Normally, the cable is spooled so that the free end of the cable must be unwound
first. As an ordering option, the cable may also be reverse spooled so that the MST end of the
cable must be unwound first. The specifications for the MST are provided in Table 1.

MST Application
In a typical FTTP network, the MST is installed between the Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) and
the subscribers as shown in Figure 3. Network feeder cables transport the optical signals from
the signal source to the FDH. At the FDH, optical splitters are used to divide the optical signals
for distribution to the subscribers. Distribution cables transport the optical signals to the MST’s
which are located at points that allow service to be provided to several subscribers. Drop cables
transport the optical signals from each MST to the individual subscribers.

GENERAL INSTALLATION INFORMATION
This section provides general installation information for all versions of the MST.
3.1
Cable Handling Recommendations
Each MST is equipped with a optical cable. Depending on the length of the cable and the
number of ports on the MST enclosure, the MST cable may be coiled up and placed in box or it
may be coiled on a spool.
Coiled Cable Handling: If the MST is placed in a box with other MST’s, carefully remove the
packaging material to expose the cable coil and the MST as shown in Figure 4. Leave the MST
on top and in the center of the coil. If the MST was ordered with the standard spooling option,
locate the free end of the cable and then carefully uncoil the cable from around the MST. If the
MST was ordered with the reverse spooling option, carefully uncoil the cable starting with the
MST end of the cable.

ADCP-96-159 • Issue 3 • 11/2010
Spooled Cable Handling: If the MST cable is coiled on a spool, remove the spool from the box
as shown in Figure 5. Leave the MST on top of the spool and place the spool on a vertical arbor.
If the MST was ordered with the standard spooling option, locate the free end of the cable.
Carefully pull the cable away from the spool allowing the spool assembly to rotate about the
vertical arbor. If the MST was ordered with the reverse spooling option, carefully unspool the
cable starting with the MST end of the cable.
23577-A
Figure 5. Typical Distribution Cable on a Spool
MST Cable Bend Radius Limits: Take care to observe the recommended minimum bend
radius limits for the distribution cable. Always maintain a minimum bend radius of 6 inches
during installation and 4 inches when installed.
Pulling the MST Cable: When pulling the MST cable into place, do not exceed a pulling force
of 25 pounds on the optical cable.
Caution: Do not pull the MST using the attached distribution cable as the pulling cable.
Internal damage to the MST may result.
3.2
Fiber and Port Configuration
Depending on the option ordered, the MST is equipped with four, six, eight, or twelve optical
ports. The number of each port is molded into the MST enclosure. The fibers in the distribution
cable are color-coded to correspond to the optical ports. Table 2 lists the port number and the
color of the associated optical fiber for the various versions of the MST.

MOUNTING THE MULTIPORT SERVICES TERMINAL
The following sections describe the MST mounting options and provide the installation
procedures for the MST.
4.1
MST Mounting Options
The MST can be mounted in any outside plant environment using anyone of several standard
OSP enclosures. However, the MST does not require any type of OSP enclosure and may be
mounted in the open from a pole or strand. The following describes the various mounting
options for the MST:
• Hand-Hole Mounting (below ground) – A hand-hole enclosure (examples shown in
Figure 6) is an OSP below-ground mounting system that may be used for any MST or
other similar products. When installed, the top of the hand-hole enclosure is flush with the
top of the ground. Hand-hole enclosures consist of a base unit and a top cover. The base
unit mounts in the ground. Cables and conduit enter the base unit from the bottom.

USING ADC DLX HARDENED CONNECTORS AND ADAPTERS
ADC DLX hardened connectors and adapters provide sealed environmental protection for the
subscriber drop cable connector, SC connector, and adapter mounted within the MST optical port.
The following sections provide a description of the connector and adapter components and provide
instructions for connecting or disconnecting the drop cable to/from the optical ports.
5.1
Connector Components
The basic components of the drop cable connector are shown in Figure 13. The connector
coupling nut threads onto the dust cap. The O-ring on the connector body provide a water tight
seal when the dust cap is in place. A pulling eye is provided in the end of the dust cap for pulling
the drop cable. Do not exceed a pulling force of 100 lbs.

Connecting Drop Cable to MST Optical Port
Danger: Exposure to laser radiation can seriously damage the retina of the eye. Do not look
into the ends of any optical fiber. Do not assume the laser power is turned-off or that the fiber is
disconnected at the other end.
Use the following procedure to connect a drop cable to an optical port on the MST enclosure:
1. Before removing the connector dust cap, clean any debris from around the drop cable
connector housing, preferably using compressed air, to minimize contaminants from being
introduced onto the ferrule.

2. Unscrew the coupling nut from the drop cable connector dust cap (see Figure 13).
3. Before removing the optical port dust cap, clean any debris from around the MST optical
ports, preferably using compressed air, to minimize contaminants from being introduced
into the optical port. Use the 216B key tool (accessory) to unscrew the dust cap (see
Figure 14) from the MST optical port.
4. Clean both the optical port adapter and the drop cable connector (requires accessory kit
FHD-ACC-CLNKIT1) as specified in ADCP-96-163.
5. Align the drop cable connector with the optical port as shown in Figure 15. The
protrusions on the drop cable connector should line up with the arrow on the optical port.

6. Insert the drop cable connector into the optical port until it slides freely into place and latches.
7. Thread the drop cable connector coupling nut into the optical port and tighten coupling nut
until finger tight.
8. Thread the optical port dust cap into the drop cable dust cap as shown in Figure 16 and
then tighten both dust caps finger tight. This ensures that both dust caps will stay clean
when not in use.

Disconnecting Drop Cable From MST Optical Port
Danger: Exposure to laser radiation can seriously damage the retina of the eye. Do not look
into the ends of any optical fiber. Do not assume the laser power is turned-off or that the fiber is
disconnected at the other end.
Use the following procedure to disconnect a drop cable from an optical port on the MST
enclosure:
1. Before removing the connector dust cap, clean any debris from around the dust cap,
preferably using compressed air, to minimize contaminants from being introduced onto
the ferrule. Unscrew the optical port dust cap from the drop cable dust cap (see Figure 16).
2. Before removing the drop cable connector, clean any debris from around the connector
housing and MST optical port, preferably using compressed air to minimize contaminants
from being introduce onto the connector ferrule or into the optical port.
3. Unscrew the drop cable connector coupling nut and remove from the optical port (see
Figure 15).
4. Grasp the connector and pull it straight out of the adapter. 5 Lbs. of force or less is
required to extract the connector.
5. Thread the optical port dust cap into the optical port and tighten until finger tight (see
Figure 14).
6. Thread the drop cable connector coupling nut into the drop cable dust cap and tighten until
finger tight (see Figure 13).

MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Maintenance for the MST enclosure is limited to cleaning the hardened adapters as needed to
maintain optimal performance.
Caution: Clean the connector body and adapter before disconnecting a drop from the adapter port
or removing the adapter port dust cap to minimize contaminants from being introduced into the
terminal adaptor port and onto it's connector end face.

Drop Cable Connector Cleaning Procedure
Cleaning kit (FHD-ACC-CLNKIT1) and key tool (216B) are required for this procedure. Use
the following procedure to clean the drop cable connector:
1. Clean the connector body, preferably using compressed air, to minimize contaminants
introduced to the ferrule. When cleaning always follow your local operating practices.
2. Unscrew the drop cable connector coupling nut from the drop cable dust cap.
3. Examine the end of the drop cable connector, note the position of the protrusions on the
connector, see Figure 17.
