Fast, flexible outdoor aggregation or demarcation enclosures for every type of fiber optic network

Charles Fiber Interconnect Terminals (CFIT) provide flexible, compact outdoor enclosure solutions for 
fiber aggregation or demarcation of up to 96 fiber connectors and/or 432 fiber splices with easily field upgradeable options. The flexible splicing area and bulkhead design allows for splicing or terminating all different fiber types and connectors. With a bare end or connector splitter tray (CFST), CFIT enclosures also offer the capability of a fiber distribution hub. A compact CFIT-C version is available for up to 48 fiber connectors and/or 120 fiber splices.

CFIT are constructed out of powder-coated aluminum and offer superior environmental protection in all outdoor applications. Their light weight allows for one-person installation on walls, posts or H-frames. Subscribers can be added incrementally for grow-as-you-go scalability, with intelligently designed fiber feed and drop tray arrangements, adapter panels and fiber cable management ensuring existing subscribers are undisturbed as new subscribers are added.

APPLICATIONS

CFIT cabinets are ideally suited to cellsites, multi-dwelling units (MDU), campuses, strip malls, business parks and other environments where the customer requires high-capacity fiber bandwidth for wireless backhaul, private networks or data and video broadband services. Their convenient form factor saves space and allows for one-person placement on walls, poles or H-Frame mounts.
