NGR - next generation rack
Designed in collaboration with installers and operators, the NGR incorporates many features not possible when using conventional 19" cabinets and splicing panels. For example, the NGR is only 300 mm deep and its "c-shaped design" allows unrestricted access to all internal elements from the front side. This not only reduces installation and servicing time, but offers customers the opportunity to position NGRs back-to-back for double density within a 600 mm standard footprint. In addition, the c-shaped design also allows cables to be patched from the NGR directly to adjacent switch equipment without the need to enter the raised floor void or overhead containment system. This reduces CAPEX and OPEX especially in small POP stations in which only a few racks are located.
HUBER+SUHNER’s NGRs are configured using modular and scalable sub-racks. This "building block" approach offers maximum flexibility with the option of matching fiber upgrades with customer take-up rates. Termination modules support all connectivity types and offer a wide array of applications in a single generic footprint so that one product covers all existing and future customer requirements.
