Fiber Terminal Boxes
GAO Tek’s fiber terminal boxes are devices used in fiber optic networks to terminate and manage fiber optic cables. Our boxes serve as a connection point for incoming and outgoing cables, providing cable termination, organization, and protection. GAO’s box includes features such as cable management, splicing trays, and connector adapters. Our boxes ensure reliable and efficient fiber optic connectivity by offering a centralized and organized termination point while safeguarding the fiber connections from damage and contaminants.
GAO’s fiber terminal boxes are composed of an enclosure, adapter panels, splice trays and holders, cable management, dust covers, connectors, and identification.
The other common names of fiber terminal boxes are optical terminal boxes, fiber distribution terminals (FDT), fiber access boxes, optical access terminals, fiber distribution points (FDP), fiber termination boxes, optical distribution boxes (ODB), fiber demarcation boxes, fiber interface boxes, optical termination boxes(OTB), fiber drop boxes, fiber service termination boxes, optical distribution points (ODP), fiber wall boxes, and fiber access terminals (FAT).
Our fiber terminal boxes have the following functions:
Cable Termination: The primary function of a GAO’s fiber terminal boxes is to provide a termination point for fiber optic cables. It allows the incoming cables to be connected and the fibers to be terminated or spliced onto pigtails or connectors.
Cable Organization: Our fiber terminal boxes include features to organize and manage the fiber optic cables. Our boxes have cable management elements such as trays, guides, or loops to ensure neat and efficient cable routing within the box.
Fiber Splicing: Our fiber terminal boxes provide a suitable environment for splicing fibers together. GAO’s boxes include splicing trays or holders that securely hold and protect the spliced fibers.
Connector Adapters: GAO’s fiber terminal boxes have adapter panels or modules to accommodate different types of fiber optic connectors, such as SC, LC, or ST connectors. Our adapters allow for easy connection of patch cords or pigtails to the terminated fibers.
Protection and Security: Our fiber terminal boxes are designed to provide physical protection to delicate fiber optic connections. GAO’s boxes help shield the fibers from dust, moisture, and other contaminants that could degrade network performance.
GAO Tek’s fiber terminal boxes are rugged, versatile, and precision measurement instruments. They comply with applicable industry standards such as Telcordia GR-326, Telcordia GR-1209-CORE and GR-1221-CORE, IEC 61753, ANSI/TIA-568-C and ISO/IEC 14763-3.
Our fiber terminal boxes help our customers comply with relevant U.S. government regulations such as:
Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
National Electrical Code (NEC)
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
GAO’s fiber terminal boxes help our clients in complying with relevant Canadian government regulations such as:
Canadian Electrical Code (CEC)
Industry Canada Regulations
Telecommunications Equipment Certification
Provincial and Municipal Regulations
Our fiber terminal boxes have the following applications:
Telecommunications: Our fiber terminal boxes are used in telecommunications networks, including long-distance fiber optic backbone networks, local area networks (LANs), and wide area networks (WANs). GAO’s boxes provide termination points for fiber optic cables, allowing for efficient connectivity and management of fiber connections.
Data Centers: Our fiber terminal boxes are used in data center infrastructure. They provide termination points for fiber optic cables, allowing for the connection of servers, switches, and storage devices. GAO’s boxes enable efficient organization and management of fiber connections within the data center environment.
Fiber to the home: Our fiber terminal boxes are used to terminate and manage fiber optic cables at the subscriber's premises. GAO’s boxes provide a connection point for the fiber optic drop cable, allowing for easy distribution of high-speed internet, voice, and video services.
Enterprise Networks: GAO’s fiber terminal boxes are used in corporate and enterprise networks to provide fiber optic connectivity for offices, campuses, and buildings. Our boxes enable the termination and organization of fiber optic cables, facilitating reliable and high-speed communication between different network components.
Industrial Networks: GAO’s fiber terminal boxes are deployed in industrial environments, such as manufacturing plants, oil and gas facilities, and transportation systems. Our boxes provide reliable fiber optic connectivity for critical applications like industrial automation, monitoring systems, and control networks.
GAO Tek’s fiber terminal boxes can be shipped overnight within the continental U.S. and Canada, and can be shipped globally.
