Optical Distribution Frame Housings

DCX Housings are available in left-to-right and right-to-left cable flow configurations for optimized management. The housing have a front-access design with 12 trays that pull out for easy access to cables connected to the back of adapter frames and cassettes. Modular cassettes can be mixed on the same tray (Base-8, Base-12, Base-16 or Base-24), enabling easy and cost-effective migration and preventing density loss.

  • Enhance signal integrity due to built-in cable bend radius control and strain relief
  • Simplify management with full access around each connection for easy insertion and removal
  • Reduce human error and connection issues with labeling space at the front and inside the patch cord cover for easy port reference
  • DCX Housings available in left-to-right and right-to-left cable flow (cable flow defined as incoming trunks to outgoing patch cords)
  • 4U housings with a capacity of 576 fiber termination (using LC) comprised of 12 sliding trays of 48 fibers (up to 6 base-8 cassettes or 4 base-12 cassettes)
  • Built-in cable and patch cord management on every tray
