All optical fiber topologies from a telecom or cable company to its customers, is based on the location of the fiber's termination point need FTTx, (Fiber to the x). It is the method used to drive NGA, (next-generation access) which describes an upgrade to the Broadband available by making a change in speed and quality of the service provided. The Multiport Service Terminal (MST) incorporates hardened connector technology that is designed to withstand the rugged outside plant environment.
The industry-standard Multiport Service Terminal (MST) series, with its huge assortment of housing styles, connectors, adapters and mounting, meets the needs of almost any network. Environmentally sealed and factory-terminated with hardened plug-and-play connector ports, the MST series grapples with outside conditions, and ensures fast deployment and lower installation costs by eliminating time-consuming splicing. These specially designed hardened connectors are factory-terminated and environmentally sealed for use in optical drop cable deployments.
