Buried distribution pedestal provides fiber backhaul at multi-tenant locations

The CFXC WDM Patch and Splice (CFXC-WPS) pedestal is designed to extend high-capacity fiber backhaul services, at multi-tenant wireless provider cell sites, business parks or remote terminals when limited dark fibers are available. The CFXC-WPS offers a lower cost alternative to placing traditional cabinet-type solutions for back-haul WDM deployments in the outside plant. Unlike metallic cabinets, the CFXC-WPS pedestal is flood proof and can be installed in almost any location. Its compact size makes it easier to install and more economical to place, without the need for an expensive concrete pad. 

The CFXC-WPS pedestal supports six feed fibers for connection to the WDM input connections and is orderable with up to 72 distribution (customer) fibers. The pedestal has factory installed and tested fiber fanouts, routed from the bulkhead adapters to the fiber splice basket, for quicker network turn-up. Engineered to support loop-thru or terminal cabling configurations and up to five splice trays.
