For use in FTTB and FTTC deployment scenarios, Iskratel offers a range of outdoor and indoor protective cabinets.
They are available in different sizes and capacities, which makes them applicable for various customer densities in urban, suburban, or rural environments. The cabinets are designed to be vandal-resistant, and are able to operate in a very wide temperature range.
In the SI3000 ODU cabinets, an integrated SI3000 Lumia – the multi-service broadband access and aggregation node – provides broadband access to end users. This way, the cabinets inherit all its benefits, its flexibility and versatility. Using the SI3000 Lumia internally, all fixed-access technologies can be provided from the cabinets, and the technologies can easily be upgraded.
Along with the integrated access node, the cabinets include batteries, distribution frames and splitters – depending on technological or regulatory requirements. In many countries, the legislation requires the public telephone services to operate for 24 hours after a power outage; in ODU cabinets, the batteries provide this level of autonomy.
The SI3000 ODU cabinets differ in physical sizes and port capacities. Specifically, the SI3000 ODU-M2 cabinet contains a 20-slot SI3000 Lumia, with up to 576 VDSL2 or 1216 POTS or 456 P2P FTTH ports. The SI3000 ODU-XS 128 cabinet contains a 2-slot SI3000 Lumia, with up to 48 P2P FTTH or 128 VDSL2/ADSL2+ ports.
