Splitter/RT
We serve about 1600 customers. I'm not sure how many splitters there will be when we're done. We are kinda spread out over 400 square miles and most live reasonably close to the CO.

I checked out your 1500. Nice, I hope it has the sides on by now...
Nortel used to have a saying :it only takes a man and a dog to run the DMS and the dog is too keep the man away from it...I think it's funny they put a locking door on the 1500.

Pics 1-3 CS1500

pic 4 Field splitter on pole / Remote Terminal will be removed.
I have heard people say "look for a tan box" when asking if fiber is in the area...The pole cabinet is Fiber. The big "tan" cabinet on the ground is copper...so looking for things colored "tan" is a waste of your time.

Are these NAP's with the connectors on the outside that you connect do, or do you have to splice each line in the NAP?

I'm not sure if the above is what I'm thinking, I think it is... but similar to what Verizon uses.

I wouldn't doubt Verizon uses these, they don't like the installers in the cable. Must be a union thing...I have seen pics of one of their FIOS builds and they used the Corning.

Bottom one: PLP Terminal Closure 6 Port
You have to splice each fiber inside to each connector then connect a fiber drop that has a connector on the end to it.
(I think this way would have a tenancy for the connectors to get dirty)

As opposed to the Corning closure where the drop is directly fusion spliced to the cable fiber. It looks like the top Coyote closure is this type as well; Top one: Coyote Sealed Terminal Closure

Note that in Verizontal-land; fiber splitter cabinets are beige; but copper crossconnects are green. YMMV there, of course...

Thanks for the pictures...

Hey MrKevin - Great pics...

Why do you use UPC fiber connectors at patch panel and go back to APC at the equipment end? Is it a mix between vendors on connector styles?

Thanks

they're all UPC connectors. The patch panels are angled for management.
We do have different styles of connectors SC, FC, LC because of vendor differences.

How many drops can be spliced and routed out one Corning NAP?

I'm not sure.
It has 3 ports on each side and if 2 are taken up by the cable then that leaves 4 free ports.
I will find out and post it on Monday.

The Corning NAP has two 32mm distribution ports in each end cap with a maximum of 8 drop ports in each end cap.

So, Each end can accommodate 8 terminations or 16 per NAP.
