Fiber Cable Installation for Modular System and Pre-terminated System

Posted on by FS.COM

Once you designed fiber optic network infrastructure, you are gonna purchase optical equipment. When receiving those devices, you must think about the installation problem. For some engineers with full experience, they don’t need to take special training course for installation. But for those freshmen, this article is really helpful for the installation of high density data center modular system and pre-terminated system.

Modular System Installation

Suppose the modular system is to connect 5 users in 3 work areas to the switch in the computer room.

The following components are needed.

Installation Steps

Step 1. Mount the 4U patch panel in the computer room in tack space close to the switch. So the patch cords can easily reach from the front face of the distribution modules to the switch.

Step 2. Install 3 distribution MTP-LC modules into the 4U panel and secure them in place by pushing in the 2 push pins. The unused positions in the panel are kept for future growth. Install blank plates into unused positions.

Step 3. Mount the 1U panel in a free spot on the rack with screws.

Step 4. Install an MTP-LC module into each 1U panel and secure in place. And install blank plates into unused positions.

Step 5. Lay the MTP trunk cables into cable trays orderly. Make sure the left cables on each end are long enough to connect into panels. Plug the MTP cables into MTP adapters on the rear of the modules in the computer room and each work area closet.

Step 6. Stick the labels supplied with the panels in a spot that can easily be seen. Fill in the labels to create a record of the connections you’ve made.

Step 7. With these connections made, you have access to each fiber end on the face of distribution modules. Then you need to do the fiber optic loss test.

Step 8. Plug the LC duplex patch cords into the each port on the modules.

Pre-terminated System Installation

Suppose the modular system is to connect 5 users in 3 work areas to the switch in the computer room.

Installation Steps

Step 1. Mount the 2U patch panel in the computer room in tack space close to the switch. So the patch cords can easily reach from the front face of the distribution modules to the switch.

Step 2. Install the adapter panels into the 2U panel and secure them in place. Unused positions can be installed with blank plates.

Step 3. Mount the 1U panels in the rack in each work area closet with screws. It should be mounted so that the distribution cables and patch cords can easily be routed into the panel.

Step 4. Install one adapter plate into each 1U panel and secure in place.

Step 5. Install the pre-terminated cable ends into the patch panels and tie off to the rear of the sliding tray. Wrap the cables around the internal features in the panels and keep the minimum bend radius of the cable.

Step 6. Route the fanout LC connectors of the pre-terminated cable to the rear of the adapter panel. After cleaning the endface of each LC connector, plug them into the adapters on the adapter panel.

Step 7. With these connections made, you have access to each fiber end on the face of distribution modules. Then you need to do the fiber optic loss test.

Step 8. Plug the LC duplex patch cords into the each port to interconnect the active equipment.

Conclusion

Cable installation is not an easy job. In reality, the cable infrastructure must be more complex than the systems introduced above. Installation techniques are required for engineers. And the ability of network design and choosing optical equipment are also necessary. FS.COM is a wise choice for these equipment. Any service needed, please contact via sales@fs.com.
