The ADF's state-of-the-art design, developed with significant input from several major service providers, delivers features, performance, density and ease of use by far beyond alternative solutions, representing a significant breakthrough in high-density optical distribution technology. With 30 mm or greater bend radius protection built into every curve and transition, the ADF is the only frame on the market today that provides the recommended level of protection for high bandwidth fiber driven by DWDM, L-band, 3G wireless systems, and other emerging technologies.
The Advanced Distribution Frame is the latest high-density fiber management product from Telect, a worldwide provider of telecommunications and broadband connectivity solutions.
The ADF offers 2,304 terminations in a 26 inches wide frame using Small Form Factor (SFF) LC connectors, or 1,536 terminations in a 26 inches wide frame using SC connectors. This density advantage provides more than 530 terminations per square foot of floor space with Small Form Factor connectors or more than 350 terminations per square foot using SC connectors, greatly increasing the utilization of valuable floor space within an office.
The ADF features 30 mm or greater bend radius protection throughout the entire frame, the industry standard recommendation for protecting high bandwidth fiber in high-density environments. No other high-density optical distribution frame on the market today offers this level of protection. Thirty-millimeter or greater bend radius protection is built into every curve and transition. This prevents degradation of the signal by eliminating micro and macro bends as well as eliminating physical stress, such as micro fractures, on each cable. This high level of protection makes the frame ready for high bandwidth fiber driven by L-Band, DWDM and 3G wireless systems, as well as "future Proofing" it for the next generation of optical technology.
