The Comtest 2811 MDF Splitter’s innovative design combines the Splitter from the DSLAM and wire wrap block from the horizontal frame into a single unit.
Moving the splitters from the DSLAM relay rack to the horizontal frame allows for increased port densification at the DSLAM and reduces the cabling required between the DSLAM and the horizontal frame. Existing unused cabling between the DSLAM and the horizontal frame can then be reused to provide new additional DSLAM Ports to the 2811 MDF Splitter on the horizontal frame.
The 2811 MDF Splitter mounts on the front of the horizontal frame and replaces the standard wire wrap blocks. Moving the splitter to the horizontal frame also resolves any existing “dead port” issues resulting from lightning or overvoltage surge issues on the DSLAM Splitters.
