With a scalable and reliable modular design, the ODM series enables network technicians to have ease of access to terminating, splicing and storing fibre. This cable management approach translates to time and money saved on moves, adds and changes.” said Crawford.</p>

• ODM has termination/splicing capability for 72-96 fibres in a 2 RU space. Integrated rear splice trays offer great flexibility to fit specific network applications. The ODM offers high capacity with up to 1,920 SC/FC connectors per 2.2m height in the optical distribution frame (ODF).</p>
