Corning Centrix Frames

The Centrix™ platform is a high–density fiber management system that provides a balance of industry–leading density with innovative jumper routing. The system can be deployed in multiple applications including: central office, headend, FTTx, FTTCS and data center. Centrix platform supports up to 4,320 LC or 2,880 SC connector ports per standard 7–ft frame/2200 mm. The frame design provides optimized routing paths for jumpers, reducing the risk of pileup or entanglement. A single jumper length for an in–frame, cross–connect network design reduces jumper inventory.

At the foundation of the Centrix platform is a single, modular cassette that can be tailored to include a variety of optical devices (splitter, WDM, etc). The modular cassette provides flexibility and functionality within a single frame without sacrificing density. Each cassette contains up to either 24 SC or 36 LC connector adapters. Easy port access is possible due to a sliding cassette with drop–down handle. A 1RU housing will hold 3 cassettes, a 2RU housing will hold 6 cassettes and a 4RU will hold 12 cassettes. Housings can be ordered empty, loaded with cassettes for on-frame splicing or as stubbed assemblies to reduce installation time and risk. The Centrix platform is available with both rear or front cable access. Front cable access allows back–to–back frame configurations or mounting against a wall. Both frame configurations save space through increased port density.
