With the rapid growth of network transmission requirements, data center operators must look for high-density cable management equipment that can provide higher performance without expanding to a larger physical space. Optical fiber distribution cabinet/ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet, as an important optical cable management equipment, is widely used in data centers to store, organize, manage and protect optical fiber cables. In order to allow you to better purchase and use optical fiber distribution cabinets/ODF optical fiber distribution cabinets, this article will expand on this.

 

What is an ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet?


ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet is also called ODF optical fiber distribution frame. ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet is a frame used to provide cable interconnection between communication facilities. It can integrate optical fiber fusion, optical fiber termination, and optical fiber adapters in one unit, connectors, and cable connectors.

What is a fiber optic wiring cabinet?

 

An optical fiber distribution cabinet can also be called an optical fiber distribution box. It is used for fiber termination, fiber fusion splicing, fiber wiring, and fiber storage. But it uses a sliding-out design of the tray inside the box. In this way, both the adapter panel and the high-density MPO/MTP distribution box can be installed. It is a commonly used wiring tool for local area networks and data centers at present, which can ensure long-term and reliable network transmission.

How to choose optical fiber distribution cabinet and ODF fiber distribution cabinet

 

Nowadays, the basic functions of the ODF fiber distribution cabinets provided by suppliers are almost the same. The biggest difference is that they have different shapes and specifications. To choose a suitable wiring cabinet, you can judge according to the following points:

 

1. The 19-inch standard rack-mounted ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet has different specifications such as 144 cores, 288 cores, 576 cores, and 720 cores. The ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet is mainly to realize flexible wiring access, so the expandable frame design is the basic condition for comprehensive cable management.

 

The 19-inch standard rack type of the optical fiber distribution cabinet is available in 1U, 2U, and 4U. Its slide-out design and sliding drawers not only allow flexible wiring but also protect optical fibers well, and it can also be matched with MTP HD distribution boxes or HD adapter panels and MTP cables. The optical fiber distribution box is the ideal equipment for the ideal interconnection and cross-connection between the backbone optical cable and the active equipment.

 

2. ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet adopts SPCC packaging shell, which can be used in combination with high-density splicing tray. It comes with an optical cable fixing plate, pole-wound wheel, and wiring service frame, which is the basic protection facility for optical cable fixing and management.

 

The optical fiber distribution cabinet adopts an SPCC steel plate encapsulation shell and powder coating, which can increase the service life of the chassis shell and prevent the shell from scratches and rust. At the same time, it comes with winding wheels, bending radius control clamps, strain relief brackets, hook and loop fasteners and cable ties, etc. It is an ideal choice for fiber backbone connection and wiring management in data center MDA, IDC, or HAD distribution areas.

 

It can be seen from the above analysis that the optical fiber distribution cabinet has all the functions of the ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet, and it has been further upgraded, making it the first choice for data centers. ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet is more suitable for basic protection and access between optical transmission network and optical transmission equipment, as well as between cables of optical fiber user access network. In the future, with the further growth of network transmission data, ODF optical fiber distribution cabinets may gradually be replaced by optical fiber distribution cabinets.

 

The use method and solution of ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet

 

Connect the switch to the rack-mounted ODF optical fiber distribution frame through the cable, and then manage the cable in the ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet, and finally move out of the fixed cable to connect to the server. The basic requirement of the ODF fiber optic distribution cabinet is to easily access the connector in the front and rear ports that can be inserted and removed. The figure below shows the cabling management solution for the ODF optical fiber distribution cabinet.

The use method and solution of optical fiber distribution cabinet

 

Connect the fiber optic patch cords connecting the optical modules and switches to the fiber optic distribution cabinet through an adapter, and then connect to each other through the fiber optic distribution cabinet and then move out of the backbone fiber optic patch cord to connect to the fiber optic distribution cabinet in the next rack. Finally, it is connected to the switch through fiber jumpers and optical modules to complete network transmission. Among them, the optical fiber distribution cabinet plays the role of optical fiber link protection and cable management.

 

Optical fiber distribution cabinet is a high-density modular optical fiber distribution product, plug and play, easy to install. It can maximize the use of the limited space of racks and cabinets and is an ideal solution for high-density wiring.
