Fiber Optic Cabinets, Cables, Pedestals and Terminals

If you are a guy my age, you probably received a pocket knife at some time in your boyhood. I got mine from my paternal Grandfather and it had virtually every attachment/tool that you could get. Off the top of my head, I remember it had a saw, long and short blade, a leather punch, a can and bottle opener, scissors and both kinds of screwdriver tips. What else could a twelve year old boy need? You would never have caught me out in the woods without that thing. It could accomplish any task that was needed.   

When I first saw the new FieldShield YOURx-Terminal and all the things it can do, it reminded of that knife I had when I was a kid. The YOURx-Terminal accepts microduct, cable-in-conduit (CIC) and even flat drop cable. It can be configured to hold splitters, MPO breakout modules and can even be used in a cascaded terminal environment. Depending on your environment and needs, it can be depended on to support you on your next project. One tool, many uses. Just like that trusty old pocket knife.

I wish I could find that thing…
