Equipment Central

This is the start of the network where the optical transmission equipment (OLTs), Optical Distributors , splitters, racks and cords are installed.
Distribution Network
This is responsible for the transition of large formation optical fiber cables from the central to small formation cables that reach the subscriber box. The key product for this part is the optical splice box and the optical splitter.
Access Network
Here we have the transition from outdoor to indoor distribution network cables. The key products for this part of the network are the optical termination box and the access cables, such as drop cables.
Termination Network
At the end of the network, where MDU topology is installed and where the transition to the indoor drop cables is made to the final equipment (ONU/ONT). In this part we have products like optical cables specially adapted for indoor environments and compact and multifunctional termination boxes that ensure the best solution for the customer.
