ADTEK Science | The difference between fiber optic patch panels and ODF patch panels

With the popularization of 5G technology, there are more and more applications of high-density and high-bandwidth, and people have higher and higher requirements for transmission rate. It can be predicted that in the future, “light advances and copper declines” is the general trend, and the importance of optical communication is self-evident.But in the optical fiber link, optical fiber connection of some commonly used accessories such as: the difference between Fiber Optic Patch Panel and ODF Patch Panel I believe that many people are not very clear, the next focus to understand.

Brief introduction

Fiber optic distribution frame (ODF) is used for terminating and distributing fiber optic cables at the local end of the fiber optic communication system, which can easily realize the connection, distribution and scheduling of fiber optic lines. With the increasing degree of network integration, there are optical-digital hybrid distribution frames integrating ODF, DDF and power distribution units, which are suitable for small and medium-sized wiring systems from fiber to cell, fiber to building, remote modules and wireless base stations.

Analyze the advantages of Fiber Optic Patch Panel

01 Design

After the optical fiber jumper enters the frame, the Fiber Optic Patch Panel can fix the optical fiber jumper on the frame, and can also mechanically fix its outer sheath and strengthening core, so as to protect the optical fiber jumper from external mechanical damage.

02 Structural aspects

Fiber Optic Patch Panel adopts box-type structure and pre-terminal modular design, which is convenient to replace and expand capacity, save space and optimize cable management

03 Management and maintenance

Fiber Optic Patch Panel enables rapid deployment of high-density interconnections and cross-connections in data centers, simplifying cabling deployment, increasing cabling density, and effectively reducing cabling faults, providing cabling flex
