The Next Step™ 1U patch panel is the only 144F/1,152F 1RU panel to date designed with staggered shelves where the individual modules snap easily into multiple positions. This offers unprecedented finger access to the modules and facilitates MACs without disrupting any other modules in the panel.
Also unique to the Next Step 1U patch panel is the magnetic multi-position cable manager included with every panel. Capable of managing 72 fibers at a time, the panel comes with 4 cable managers so 144F can be managed with ease.
The 1U panel has a modular capacity of 12, accommodating 144F using LC cassettes, 1,152F using MPO adapter strips, and 288F when used as a splice box. The flexibility of this panel is like none other on the market today.
