AFL's new enclosures provide convergence point for interconnecting, splicing wall mount applications

AFL is giving fiber installers more wall-mount interconnect enclosure options with the introduction of two new wall-mount interconnect enclosures featuring LGX mounting positions. Ideal for co-location sites, customer premise, hub/OTN sites, telecom closets and campus/enterprise environments, the WME-01 and WME-12 enclosures provide a convergence point for interconnecting and/or splicing in wall mount applications.

Developed with one LGX-compatible adapter plate or optical module, the WME-01 enclosure features a solution for fiber and cable management on both the top and bottom openings of the enclosure. WME-01 also includes a front access door which is lockable with a common pad-lock or tube-style keyed lock. With one LGX mounting position, the WME-01 enclosure has a 12 to 24 fiber patch and splice density.
 
Featuring fiber and cable management on both the ingress and egress openings of the enclosure for up to 12 LGX-compatible optical modules, the WME-12 enclosure features discrete access doors with separate locking options. With 12 LGX mounting positions, the WME-12 has up to 288 fiber density.

"The new wall-mount enclosures are ideal for new and existing interconnect, cross-connect and co-location environments," explained Tom Jeffers, associate product manager for AFL's ISP product line. Release
