The FieldSmart FxDS NEBS Level 3 Certified Panel is a high density, low maintenance fiber distribution panel for use in a 19” or 23” frame. Utilizing the Clearview® Cassette, FieldSmart FxDS NEBS Level 3 Certified Panels are intelligently designed to provide the user with superior fiber access and craft-friendly, radius protected, fiber management for routing and deploying fiber jumpers. The optional metal chassis allows panels to be deployed on an industry standard frame or for the ultimate in cost-efficiencies, it can be ordered with only the bulkhead.

Stand Alone Panel in 19” or 23” Frame

When you already have the frame and want to add just a panel or two of incremental fiber management, the FxDS is configured with front and rear protection blocks for complete slack storage and physical fiber protection.

Stand Alone in a Data Cabinet

When you already have a data cabinet and simply need to add fiber management, the FxDS is configured without the front protection block, providing all the fiber protection you need without the added cost.

Stand Alone Panel in an OSP Cabinet

Make the crossover into the OSP with the identical product. Patch only environments are supported without additional components, while a rear protection block enables patch and splice configurations. The common architecture saves you time and money in reducing inventory costs and shorter training periods.
