Features & Benefits


Clearfield 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 with the option of scaling up to the maximum capacity of 1280 lines.


The ODC-1000 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 allows for the installation of common devices such as fiber management, passive optical splitters, and CWDM EDFAs.


The ODC 1000 is equipped with a rear door which allows access to the back of the equipment mounted in the front equipment chamber. When configured for a Calix C7, the C7 is mounted to a swing bracket to enable access to the rear of the shelf. In addition, any 19-inch gear mounted above the C7 has the ability to swing open for rear access via an optional swing bracket kit.


The ODC-1000 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-1000 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-1000 supports traditional copper-based services (POTS, DS0 specials, xDSL), yet gives service providers the ability to support large quantities of other 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-1000 cabinet 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 ODC-1000 has low-capacity and high-capacity door mount cooling options. The low-capacity cooling option is available to cool up to 240 lines of POTS+DSL services. The high-capacity cooling option is designed to cool up to 576 lines of POTS+DSL services and provide additional cooling for third party equipment. Customers can initially deploy the low-capacity cooling option and then field-upgrade to the high-capacity option as service requirements warrant.
