Open Architecture Fiber Interconnect Pedestals 


Charles BDO Interconnect Pedestals provide pre-connectorized “interconnect panel” fiber drops to multiple broadband service customers at a fraction of the cost of Light Guide Cross-Connect (LGX) solutions. The BDO Interconnect Pedestal is ideal for multi-tenant cell site, campus or strip mall environments where the customer requires high-capacity fiber bandwidth for wireless backhaul, private networks or data and video broadband services. With a built-in SC/APC or SC/UPC adapter bulkhead, BDO Interconnect pedestals facilitate fast and easy provisioning of fiber services to the end customer’s fiber multiplexing equipment. Fiber drops can be turned up, moved or disconnected on an “as needed” basis, giving telecom service providers added flexibility in their efforts to provide broadband voice, data and video services to customers whose bandwidth requirements may change seasonally or due to major events.

BDO Interconnect Pedestals feature a non-metallic construction and open architecture design with a flood-proof outer dome. Technicians have open 360º access to internal splicing and interconnect areas on the fiber organizer.

Product  Features

  • Lift-off outer dome with self-locking mechanism ensures secure attachment to the base and creates a patented “Bell-Jar Effect” that provides outstanding flood protection
  • Pedestal is constructed of non-metallic PVC to resist rust, corrosion, and impact. Internal equipment is protected from floods, fires, and wind-blown dust and debris
  • Central Office side of fiber organizer includes bulkhead adapters, splice tray basket (splice tray optional), cable management guides, ground wire posts and strength member clamps
  • Optional SC/APC or SC/UPC 900-micron, color coded fiber cable is available for Central Office side bulkhead splicing.
  • Drop side of fiber organizer includes bulkhead adapters, cable management guides, ground wire posts and strength member clamps
  • Two-piece “split” base makes it easy for technicians to place the pedestal without having to “squeeze” in loop-through cable, preventing bend radius damage during installation
  • Expanded-capacity base easily accommodates conduit bundles and increases stability in all soil types
