Designed with many of the same features as the FieldShield YOURx-Terminal, the YOURx-Aerial Terminal allows for aerial or strand mount fiber deployment within the network architecture.

The YOURx-Aerial Terminal can accept the “hand-off” of fiber and distribute up to 24 individual service drops and has the capability to mid-span a larger count fiber cable, allowing the service provider to deploy multiple terminal/access points along the same cable run, maximizing the investment in fiber deployment.

Designed for easy craft accessibility, the YOURx-Aerial Terminal application has a removable tethered cover with four side entrance cable access ports. The backplane of the unit has the capacity to hold up to two 12 fiber splice trays, incorporating fiber management and bend-radius protection into the design. With up to 24 individual drops terminated to SC connectors, the YOURx-Aerial Terminal can accept all of the FieldShield drop options, as well as other cable drop options.
