Feeder and Distribution Networks

Image

The Feeder and Distribution Network is the backbone of any fiber access network.

The feeder network connects any central office to fiber distribution points such as our Fiber Distribution Hubs (FDHs).

The FDH is the location of passive fiber optic devices such as fiber optic splitters and/or cross connection facilities depending on technology.

When deploying metropolitan and access networks, air-blown micro cable technology offers great benefits. A microduct system such as Ericsson Micronet enables quick and easy incremental installations of cables. The capacity of the network can quickly be increased by inserting new cables in spare microducts when needed The system also minimizes the number of fiber splice joints in the network compared to traditional cable solutions. The Micronet system consists of micro cables, microducts, duct joints and accessories.

For more information on our traditional loose tube and ribbon cables for the distribution and drop networks, see the Fiber Transport Network.
