Automating Fiber Optic Cross-Connect

AODF for Multi-Operator Outside Plant

To reduce operational expenses, carriers and local regulators are driven to share ownership of the network infrastructure. They use street cabinets or sheltered huts as shared distribution hubs to which they connect their optical fiber feeder cables and distribute them from this concentration point (also called a sharing point) to the homes' sharing space.

TeliSwitch AODF FTTH outside plant systems are specifically tailored for multi-operator architecture. We offer either configurable AODF multi-operator system models designed for large concentration points that can be populated with several AODF units or fixed compact AODF models suitable for small street cabinets or even manholes. TeliSwitch's unique modular solution enables scalable home connection growth for both design models.

Tailoring the AODF outside plant solution for your needs

The TeliSwitch asymmetrical switching design allows operators to pre-define their particular system configuration taking into consideration current needs and predicted future growth. As an operator, you can define the number of operators, the number of homes passed over and served, and the number of active links that are required in an outside plant concentration unit. At TeliSwitch, we use this information to design the best outside plant suite that meets your specific requirements. Below you can find optional system configurations for your review. Feel free to contact us to discuss your optical switching needs.

AODF144x72x4

Supporting four different operators, it connects any 72 of 144 home ports to any of the four operators. It is ideal for deployment in concentration points situated either in street cabinets or in huts. Large concentration points can be populated with several AODF144x72x4 units. TeliSwitch AODF144x72x4 modular architecture enables operators to deploy per actual demand and keep their total cost of ownership low.

AODF288x5x144

Supporting five different operators, the AODF288X5X144 connects any of 288 home ports to any of the five operators’ specific ports. The AODF288x5x144 is an extremely compact, low cost solution, making it suitable for either small street cabinet or manhole deployments. Large concentration points can be populated with several AODF288x5x144 units.

AODF144x4x144

Supporting four different operators, the AODF144x4x144 connects any of 144 home ports to any of the four operators’ specific ports. The AODF144x4x144 is an extremely compact, low cost solution, making it suitable for either small street cabinet or manhole deployments. Large concentration points can be populated with several AODF144x4x144 units.
