ASCEND® fiber housing is available in 2RU size with densities of up 288 fibers. Designed to support incremental growth or a full-scale deployment, ASCEND housings provide the ultimate in ease-of-use and fiber management features.
ASCEND 2RU housing is 19/23″ rack-mountable and constructed using galvannealed steel for an extended service life. The front and rear doors are both hinged on the bottom, while the rear section of the housing cover is removable for unobstructed access to all connector interfaces. Integrated routing rings at the front of the trays enable secure and organized routing of patch cords which facilitates efficient Moves, Adds, and Changes (MACs).
ASCEND 2RU housing is compatible with a wide variety of ASCEND optical cassettes which can be mixed and matched within the same enclosure to offer plug-and-play versatility.
Cassettes can be independently installed from the front or rear of the housing onto a sliding tray system.
The rear of the housing incorporates a trunk cable management area that features multiple cable mounting positions that are designed to securely manage slack while allowing the trays to slide in/out for installation and service.
