The OTE (Optical Terminal Enclosure) is designed to support the splicing and termination of
optical drops and traditional splicing in aerial, pole or wall mount applications. The unit is an inline
enclosure with four ports on each end for a total of eight ports. The OTE is constructed of a
durable and impact resistant polyethylene material specifically formulated for outside plant
environments. The unit can support express cabling as well as the addition of branch or lateral
cabling. When used as a drop splicing or termination enclosure, the OTE will support a variety
of drop designs and provide the environmental sealing and strain relief required.
The unit is rectangular with a hinged access cover. The cover is designed with a latching
mechanism to prevent inadvertent closing during installation activities. The unit can support up
to 8 drops per port (6 ports) in FTTH applications. The enclosure is supplied with all of the
hardware required to seal and secure the express/feeder cables, and two (24) fiber splice trays,
one on the Network side and one on the subscriber drop side of the unit.
