Fiber Optic Patch Panel

The Fiber Optic System has become a complex setup because of the addition of numerous fibers into the network almost every other day. To organize and manage these cables, technicians use various cable organizers like fiber optic panels. The use of fiber optic panels minimizes the clutter of wires and makes the management, movement, and addition of fiber optic cables easier. Of all the fiber cable organizers that are available in the market, the fiber optic distribution panel is the most widely used cable manager.

What is a fiber distribution panel?

 A fiber distribution panel is primarily used for accommodating fiber cable connections, terminations, and patching. With these fiber panels, technicians can easily control the clutter of fiber optic cables and connection points in a standard panel or any other enclosure structure. In simple words, fiber distribution panels make cable management and maintenance easier for you.

 How many types of ftth patch panels are available?

 There are various types of ftth patch panels available in the market, including Rack mount fiber patch panel, wall mount fiber panels, fiber enclosures, and cable managers. Some of the key features that differentiate one type of panel from another include size, capacity for port density, flexibility for design and configuration options, deployment location (indoor or outdoor),

The most commonly used type of ftth patch panel is the 24 port fiber patch panel. This type of panel is designed to accommodate multiple fiber connectors in a single housing, making it an ideal solution for managing and organizing large amounts of network cabling.

12 port fiber patch panel and 48 port fiber patch panel are also popular options, depending on your specific network requirements.

MPO patch panel is another type of fiber panel that is commonly used in large data centers, where high density cabling solutions are required.

Cable management panel is used for manage cable routing and organizing cables within a structured cabling system.

Fibre patch panel 24 port is with 24 simplex sc adapters or 24 duplex lc adapters.

36 port patch panel is with 36 ports simplex sc adapters or 36 ports duplex lc adapters.

 Wall Mount Fiber Optic Panel

These types of fiber optic distribution panels are designed for direct termination of cables that can be virtually mounted anywhere. Plus, wall mount optic panels are designed with dual doors to allow easy cable access.

 Rack Mount Fiber Optic Panel

Rack mount fiber optic panels, on the other hand, are usually used in data center rack cable management. These panels are available in the patch panel and enclosure versions with different LC or SC ports. These fiber panels are much more popular in data centers that account for high-density cabling systems. The reason is simple, rack mount fiber panels are versatile and have larger capacities.

 How to buy a fiber optic panel?

 There are lots of good options available in the market when you purchase a optic panel; it may become difficult to find a suitable one. To ease off your burden and help you find the right adapter panel to suffice your needs, consider the following factors:

 Rack Mounted or Wall Mounted

First things first, find the place where you want to install the panel. The installation place is the first thing you need to consider because it reflects the purpose of your purchase. For example, if you require a distribution panel for wall-mounted applications like in a telecommunication room, you should buy a wall mount fiber optic panel. In contrast, rack mount fiber optic panels are best suited for network and server racks.

 Loaded or unloaded

The second thing you need to consider while buying a adapter panel is the practical and long-term utility of the distribution panel. There are two types of fiber optic panels- loaded and unloaded. Suppose you buy a loaded fiber distribution panels, and the next thing you need to do is simply snap in the fiber optic cable connections. But, loaded panels have a drawback. In case one port of a loaded panel gets damaged, it will not work again. Plus, changing connectors is not as feasible in Loaded optic panels, and you may need to replace your old fiber optic panel with a new one. For example, if your old panel has SC connectors and you want to change them to new LC ones, you may need to buy a totally new LC-loaded fiber optic panel. At the same time, unloaded fiber distribution panels have no such limitations and offer users more flexibility.

 Overall,  Installation and management of fiber cable systems are challenging when several hundreds of fiber optic cables exist. The fiber optic panels offer great support by eliminating the cable clutters and providing ample space and protection to all fiber optic cables. Moreover, using a fiber optic panel makes cable management and troubleshooting work much more manageable. 

How do you connect fiber optic cable to patch panel?

 The fiber optic patch panel is suitable for the wiring connection between the optical cable and the optical communication equipment. Through the adapter in the patch panel, the optical signal is drawn out with the optical patch cord to realize the optical wiring function. It is suitable for the protective connection of optical cables and distribution pigtails, and is also suitable for the use of optical fiber termination points in optical fiber access networks.

 What are the two types of patch panel?

 There are 12 ports fiber optic patch pane and 24 ports fiber optic patch panel two types.

 What is the purpose of the patch panel?

 The patch panel has a wide range of functions, including the introduction, fixation and stripping protection of optical cables, fusion and protection of optical fibers, storage of pigtails, storage and management of jumpers, fixed connection and cross-connection of optical fibers, etc. Value-added module units such as optical splitters, wavelength division multiplexers, etc. can be installed at the customer’s request; it can also be used for the termination, use and management of optical cables between wiring rooms and equipment.

 What is the size of the patch panel?

 There are 19inch or 21inch patch panel, height can be 1U, 2U, 3U, 4U, 5U.
