Features & Benefits


Clearfield powered cabinets are designed to easily scale from a minimal configuration to the maximum capacity of the cabinet. Design consideration has been taken to enable the customer to field install and scale common options such as line protection, cooling, and cross-connect modules. The cabinet can be configured for as low as 48 lines, and the option of scaling up to the maximum capacity of 288 Combo VDSL2 lines with the Calix E7-2, or 144 lines with Calix B6-001 products.


The ODC-100 has been designed to accommodate a variety of standard options that are expected in remote cabinets, such as the battery base, battery warmers, integrated cross-connect, and field changeable distribution frames for copper or fiber based access. The cabinet supports the installation of third party equipment, as well as the ability to connect to the network via either copper or protected fiber uplinks.


The ODC-100 enables service providers to power the cabinet using standard AC power, or power it remotely using +/- 190Vdc from a remote power node or a remote power system in the CO. Line or remote network power enables service providers to easily deploy services to subscribers without dependence on the local utility, and without continued battery maintenance.


The ODC-100 provides an ideal platform for the migration of copper access services to fiber access infrastructure and electronics. The mount frames in the cabinet support equal concentration of copper pro-panels as fiber distribution frames. The chassis based architecture of Calix E7-2 and B6-001 provide a common infrastructure for copper (ADSL2+ and VDSL2) and fiber access (GPON or AE) service line cards.


The ODC-100 provides frontal and lateral doors, for front and rear access to the equipment within the cabinet. A heat exchanger is built onto the side door as a standard feature of the cabinet. The cabinet is designed to allow access to all complementary elements of a remote deployment such as the integrated cross-connect, copper or fiber cables, copper based transport units, fiber splicing and distribution modules, power and DC distribution systems, AC power and battery charge breakers, AC outlet, etc.


The ODC-100 cabinet has been designed to address heat dissipation associated with the deployment of high density, high-speed services from remote terminal locations. Cooling is achieved via a door-mounted air-to-air heat exchanger that is factory installed and field-maintainable.
