For Copper & Fiber Terminal Blocks with Copper Splice Storage

Brownfield Buried Distribution Pedestals Designed for Overlay Fiber Networks Using Hardened Terminal Blocks
  BDO CTFT Brownfield Fiber Pedestals
*User supplied

Charles BDO Series Brownfield Fiber Distribution Pedestals for fiber terminal block, copper terminal block with copper splice storage (BDO CTFT) provide a comprehensive solution for overlaying a hardened fiber plant without increasing the number of installed pedestals. The BDO CTFT pedestal is ideal for fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network deployments as well as multi-tenant cell site, campus or strip mall environments where copper plant already exists and the customers require high-capacity fiber bandwidth for data and video broadband services, wireless backhaul, private networks or data and video broadband services. 

The BDO CTFT incorporates a unique 3-sided backboard design; sides 1 and 2 provide space for attaching the existing copper terminal block and storing the associated copper splices and side 3 provides a mounting position for the overlay fiber terminal block. Two pedestal sizes, 10” and 12” are available to support variously-sized terminal blocks as well as copper splice storage needs.

BDO Brownfield Pedestals feature a non-metallic construction and open architecture design with a flood-proof outer dome that offers superior OSP protection against floods, fire, dirt, insects and impact. Technicians have open 360º access to internal components installed within the backplane. BDO Pedestals feature an expanded-capacity split base designed to easily install around existing copper plant and new conduit for fiber cables.
