HDBO - open fan-out system

HDBO - open fan-out system

The fan-out approach allows individual fan-outs to be routed directly from the centralised optical distribution rack to the switch without any additional connections in the link. This approach offers less flexibility than the cartridge system but provides customers with lower link losses between the MDA and switching area. Fan-outs can be supplied with any connector type but generally the LC-XD type (duplex, uniboot and push-pull with extraction finger) is recommended because even in the highest density applications, it is significantly faster and easier to add and remove connections than any other product on the market.
