Rainford Solutions specialises in creating solutions for network operators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The portfolio includes outdoor IP Rated cabinets and indoor racks to house powered equipment and passive fibre connectivity.
Our Fibre to the Home (FTTH) / Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) solutions include street cabinets that protect passive fibre optic infrastructure, to actively cooled cabinets for securely housing the advanced opto-electronics that switch, route and transmit the huge volumes of data in today’s broadband access networks.
Our solutions are designed to perform for a range of applications, from co-location inside telephone exchanges including overhead cable management, through to outdoor street cabinet applications that protect both fibre optic and copper based broadband network infrastructure.
The latest generation of optical fibre networks are being built with GPON technology (NG-PON2 is just around the corner) using optical line termination (OLT) units produced by vendors such as Adtran, Nokia, DZS Keymile and Huawei. These are superseding the previous gen ‘fibre to the cabinet’ technologies like ADSL, VDSL and HDSL. For further technical information regarding GPON networks, see here.
