Passive fibre equipment
Over the last little while we have been busily readying our network for launch. In addition to the active equipment there is a lot of passive fibre equipment that has been installed at our interconnection points. Many thousand fibres have been hauled, prepared, cleaned, spliced and terminated to support the Megaport service.
For our fibre equipment we have used Tyco’s GR2 racks and utilise their GPS2 shelves. By using LCA connectors we can terminate 144 cores of fibre in each 3 rack unit shelf.
