Product Details

The Clearfield ODC-2000 broadband enclosure has been designed with the philosophy of modularity and flexibility, while maintaining a maximum heat dissipation capability. Designed to accommodate broadband shelves such as the Calix C7, E-Series, and F5, the ODC-2000 provides all the powering, protection, and cable management to serve up to 960 copper or up to 2560 PON customers. The ODC-2000 supports 100% density of narrowband and broadband services.

Features & Benefits


Clearfield ODC-2000 enclosures are designed to easily scale from a minimal configuration to the maximum capacity of the enclosure. Design consideration has been taken to allow the customer to field install and scale common options such as line protection, cooling, and cross-connect modules. Clearfield enclosures can be configured for as low as 480 lines with the option of scaling up to the maximum capacity of 960 lines.


The ODC-2000 has been designed to accommodate third party equipment in both the front and rear equipment compartments as well as the splice chamber. Twenty-three-inch equipment racks in the front, rear, and splice chambers allow for the installation of common devices such as fiber management, passive optical splitters, and CWDM EDFAs.


When configured for broadband shelves, the ODC-2000 front and rear 23-inch racks swing out to provide rear access to equipment mounted in the racks. For all configurations, the protector panels are mounted on swing-down frames for troubleshooting and cabling purposes.


The ODC-2000 can terminate large amounts of fiber, comfortably serving as the intermediary to deploy fiber-to-the-home or fiber-to-the-business services. With the usage of standard 23-inch equipment racks, the ODC-2000 can support the usage of high density third party Fiber Distribution Panels, allowing a smooth transition of every subscriber from copper- to fiber-based services when desired. The ODC-2000 manages up to two Calix C7 shelves full of fiber-based interfaces (including connectors, splice trays, and distribution panels).


The ODC-2000 supports traditional copper-based services (POTS, DS0 specials, xDSL), yet gives service providers the ability to support large quantities of high revenue-generating services, such as DS1 (hi-cap quality with 1:N protection), DS3, OC-3, OC-12, Gigabit Ethernet, and fiber-to-the-home, all from the same platform with no need to deploy overlay networks for specific services.


Intelligent power management features guarantee continued delivery of narrowband and selective user-provisioned broadband services during extended periods of battery-powered operation.


The ODC-2000 enclosure has been designed from the ground up to address heat dissipation issues associated with the deployment of high-speed services from remote terminal locations. Cooling is achieved via door-mounted air-to-air heat exchangers that are either factory- or field-installable. The cooling options support 480 or 960 POTS+ADSL services.
