PPF panel offers front-facing access for broadcasters
ADC Telecommunications, a provider of broadband communications network infrastructure products, has launched new ProPatch Fiber optic panel designed specifically for broadcasters.
According to the company, ProPatch Fiber (PPF) optic panel is expected to address both industry requirements and space-saving aesthetics. A flush-mounting front panel that doesn’t protrude from the rack minimizes accidental physical contact. Designed to hold up under extreme use, the PPF is fabricated from heavy gauge metal and is tested to military standards.
ADC has said that for broadcasters who traditionally managed their equipment access from the back, the PPF panel offers front-facing access for flexibility in crowded locations where rear access is limited. The panel also incorporates ADC’s sliding adapter packs, fiber management trays that allow access for connecting jumpers and cleaning connectors without disturbing adjacent fibers.
Dean Rosenthal, market manager of broadcast and enterprise solutions for ADC, said: Helping broadcasters migrate their copper-heavy networks to fiber through management tools like the PPF panel underscores ADC’s history of evolving with our customers to help them deliver the cutting-edge data, video and voice services that consumers have come to expect.
