Latest company news about ADTEK Science | The difference between fiber optic patch panels and ODF patch panels

With the popularization of 5G technology, there are more and more applications of high-density and high-bandwidth, and people have higher and higher requirements for transmission rate. It can be predicted that in the future, "light advances and copper declines" is the general trend, and the importance of optical communication is self-evident.But in the optical fiber link, optical fiber connection of some commonly used accessories such as: the difference between optical fiber distribution frame and ODF distribution frame I believe that many people are not very clear, the next focus to understand.

Brief introduction

Fiber optic distribution frame (ODF) is used for terminating and distributing fiber optic cables at the local end of the fiber optic communication system, which can easily realize the connection, distribution and scheduling of fiber optic lines. With the increasing degree of network integration, there are optical-digital hybrid distribution frames integrating ODF, DDF and power distribution units, which are suitable for small and medium-sized wiring systems from fiber to cell, fiber to building, remote modules and wireless base stations.

 

Analyze the advantages of Fiber Optic Patch Panel

 

01 Design

After the optical fiber jumper enters the frame, the optical fiber distribution frame can fix the optical fiber jumper on the frame, and can also mechanically fix its outer sheath and strengthening core, so as to protect the optical fiber jumper from external mechanical damage.

 

02 Structural aspects

Fiber optic distribution frame adopts box-type structure and pre-terminal modular design, which is convenient to replace and expand capacity, save space and optimize cable management

 

03 Management and maintenance

Fiber optic distribution frame enables rapid deployment of high-density interconnections and cross-connections in data centers, simplifying cabling deployment, increasing cabling density, and effectively reducing cabling faults, providing cabling flexibility.

 

The difference between fiber optic distribution frame and ODF distribution frame

Referring to a different

Fiber optic wiring frame: Fiber optic wiring equipment specially designed for fiber communication room.

ODF distribution frame: it is an important part of the information machine room with the functions of fiber optic cable fixing and protection, fiber optic cable connecting and line adjusting

 

Use different

ODF distribution frame: it can protect fiber core and tail fiber of optical cable.It can be assembled into optical fiber distribution frame alone, or in a cabinet/frame with digital distribution unit and audio distribution unit.To form a comprehensive distribution frame.The equipment is flexible in configuration, simple in installation and use, easy to maintain, easy to manage, is an essential equipment for fiber communication and cable network terminal, or relay point to achieve fiber arrangement, fiber skipping fiber optic cable fusion and access.

 

Optical fiber distribution frame: it is used for terminal and distribution of main optical cable in optical fiber communication system, which can conveniently realize the connection, distribution and scheduling of optical fiber lines.With the increasing degree of network integration, the optical-number hybrid distribution frame, which integrates ODF, DDF and power distribution unit, appears.

 

Scope of application

Optical fiber distribution frame: suitable for small and medium sized distribution system of optical fiber to residential area, optical fiber to building, remote module and wireless base station.

 

ODF distribution frame: it is an indispensable part of the information room with the functions of fiber optic cable fixing and protection, cable connecting and line adjusting.

 

In simple terms, optical fiber distribution frame is between optical fiber and optical communication equipment or wiring connection between optical communication equipment, ODF optical fiber distribution frame is designed for optical fiber communication machine room of optical fiber wiring equipment, cable fixed and protection function, fiber optic cable terminating function, the line function, is an integral part of the information machine room.
