The QRapid fiber panel is the new version of the company’s Rapid Fiber panel that incorporates Quareo physical layer management technology comprising connection point identification (CPID) for real-time visibility to network add-ons, moves and changes. This version is said to improve speed and efficiency in central office fiber deployments while reducing deployment costs. The QRapid fiber panel is a 1RU 48-port or 3RU 144-port rack-mountable fiber distribution panel that incorporates RapidReel fiber cable spool and contains electronics that enable it to function as part of the Quareo physical layer management system. The functionality of the QRapid fiber panel provides a user with the ability to know in real time whether each front port of the panel is connected, and to what other equipment and port it is connected. Benefits include:
• Physical Layer Management: Expands options for central office and data center network architects who want to gain an accurate, real-time view of the physical network.
• Cost Savings: RapidReel cable spools reduce upfront deployment costs by simplifying site survey inspections, reducing labor hours and streamlining cable deployment.
• Faster Deployment: The pre-connectorized, plug-and-play solution eliminates splice labor Easy Access: The panel's technician-friendly, front-facing interface ensures trouble-free maintenance and fast service turn-ups.
