A box-like intersection unit that offers a safe housing solution for optical fibers, wiring cables, and jumper connections that link optical cables and wiring cables, is termed a cross-connection cabinet. Optical cable connections and fiber distributions need terminations with added safety and modularity.
A Cross-connection Cabinet typically consists of a box, a fiber optic cable fixed plate, a fusion splice tray integrated into the box, and several hanging fiber columns. This connection box is bought on the basis of the number of cores it can support. Thus, the buyer can find terms like a 48-core cross-connection cabinet, 96-core, and so on. The cores supported are 48 or multiple of them in numbers. The main box is made using unsaturated resin, a yarn made of sheet molding compound (SMC), additives promoting low shrinkage and various fillers, etc.
