Radio Design’s SmartSite Solutions™ FTTA system uses a novel bulkhead design which facilitates standardised, repeatable and fast FTTA system deployments without the need for electrically qualified or DC competent personnel and with Health & Safety at the heart of the design. The divorcing of trunks, cable fan-outs, pendants and jumpers from one another, makes the system highly flexible, easily deployable and easy to repair if a particular system component became damaged. This approach to trunk connectorisation brings together the benefits of the connectorised cable fan-out approach for DC systems, the connectorised pendant approach for fibre systems and the ease of trunk routing benefits of the unconnectorised BoB approach.
The system comprises of three different brackets, several Fibre Hydra boxes – available as both single and multimode solutions – and two DC Hydras. Both the dual and double bracket will support up to a maximum of eight RRHs, and the single bracket supports up to six RRHs. Only one tool is required for the entire installation.
