Fiber to the Home - Fiber Optic Cable Management

Perhaps the most difficult issue to deal with in any datacenter is cable management. In FttH projects we deal with very high volumes of fiber optic cabling in relative small buildings.

Large quantities of FO cable leave the ODF and enter the active equipment cabinet. There it is connected to the equipment ports to give the customer the required digital services.

The path between the ODF and the 19-inch cabinets is often the reason for a lot of headaches. If cable management is not implemented right you will suffer overlength and "spaghetti" problems. These problems delete your network integrity and will cause considerable costs (OPEX) in repairing.

Quintis has been dealing with cable management for more than 10 years and brings special solutions for it. We have been in the FO datacenters from starters on and know all ins and outs on Fiber Management.

First of all, the space between the ODF and the 19-inch cabinets needs to be filled with an adequate ducting system. A special FO ducting systems, known as Yellow Ducting will provide you with all necessary elements in cable management. It guarantees the bending radius needed for fiber and is adaptable and expandable even in a live situation.

Our yellow ducting is made out of halogen free NORYL®.

In every datacenter the regulations will prohibit the use of halogens.
Halogens are dangerous in case of fire since they can aggressively damage men, equipment and buildings. When using NORYL® ducting you will comply to these regulations.

Quintis will support you in the design and implementation of the ducting.
