Anyone who owns their own home or has made a real estate investment has heard the phrase "Location, Location, Location" - which is real-estate lingo for the top three elements in property values. Isn't it interesting how identical or similar buildings constructed with identical or almost-identical materials can differ in value, solely based on the placement of the structure? And who's to say which location is more desirable or valuable than another? Well, we know that some reasons include the need for stability and security, limited availability, quick and easy access to required resources, and ease of access.
Let us also use this concept with a site that has enormous value - the central office, or headend for Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS). We know that the hub and headend have very limited access to space and provide quick and easy access to required resources. In addition, we know that demands for connectivity and services in this valuable space are continuing to grow. So, what is the best way to achieve flexibility for continued progress in this limited-space environment?
(ODF) NG4access Optical Distribution Frame to tackle these issues in the following ways:
- Matching interfaces on both the front and rear of the frame modules provide ease of access. No longer do we have the traditional "front - panel, back - rats-nest" design.
- Convenience may be a resource that is desirable, but the primary strength is flexibility. Is WDM required, or patching, or splitters? All connectivity needs can be met because the modules available are very simple, meaning you can use whatever is required anywhere within the frame.
- If space is unavailable, or limited, multiple racks can be replaced by the NG4, using optimized density. This frees up both valuable floor space and rack space to allow for other income-generating equipment.
- Stability and security are achieved through unique fiber management, diminishing the likelihood of damaging or disconnecting unwittingly. Density has no value without handy access. Your prime location deserves attention!
