Introduction of FHD Wall Mount Patch Panel

Different systems is usually equipped with a functional unit which aims at improving work efficiency and performance of such a system. In fiber cabling system, a fiber patch panel is regarded as the functional unit. Data transmission may become ineffective if there is no fiber patch panel. Since it’s introduced in telecommunication, fiber patch panel has opened up new possibilities for cable management and data communication. It can connect all horizontal and vertical cables in any facilities, for changing the long and troublesome cables into ordered and more manageable ones, as a result, the signal can be connected directly to its destination via a patch code. In terms of different designs, wall mount patch panel and rack mount patch panel are the two types. Today, we will discuss FHD wall mount patch panel.

Overview of FHD Wall Mount Patch Panel

Form the name, we know FHD wall mount patch panel is a patch panel with high density cassettes fixed on walls. The cassettes lie in a space-saving and mountable panel enclosure. As the following figure shows, it includes two separate parts. The left side can accommodate outside cables entering the device while the right side is used for internal cable assembly network. Both sides have a door that can be locked separately for security.

Benefits of FHD Wall Mount Patch Panel

Once installed, enterprises can use the FHD wall mount patch panel to connect and disconnect different types of cables. This particular wall mount enclosure has many benefits.

  • Saving Space

Space saving is the obvious benefit that can be seen. In data centers, technicians always hope the working space could be larger, the larger the better, so that they can introduce and use the most advanced equipment to upgrade networks or do some researching. Wall mount patch panel makes it possible for optimizing their work space by keeping the equipment off floors or desks.

  • Increased Capacity  

FS.COM wall mount interconnect enclosure can house 2pcs FHD series MTP modular cassettes or fiber adapter panels, providing a convenient convergence point for interconnecting and splicing in wall mount applications.

  • Easy Installation

There is no need to use tool to install the cassette which helps simplify installation process. Users can assemble a FHD wall mount patch panel quickly with the instruction book.

  • Additional Security

FHD wall mount patch panel have two doors that will reduce the risk of accidental restart, bumping or other work done computer equipment. In some sense, using a patch enclosure can protect devices and cables against the dust and is easy for cleaning.

FHD Wall Mount VS FHD Rack Mount Patch Panel

FHD rack mount patch panel look like a drawer. Compared with the wall mount product, the differences lie in many aspects such as the installation, application and designs. For more details about the two types, you may visit this article Wall Mount VS Rack Mount Patch Panel.

Conclusion

FHD wall mount patch panel is a perfect solution in cabling system. It’s a quite smart choice for those who have big technology demand of a limited space. So if you’re looking for a space-saving and secure way to store your fiber optic cables, then FS.COM is the place for you.

What Is a Patch Panel Used for?

Today, a good network will not run well without an efficient cable management. In data center, dealing with a variety of unorganized and disordered cables or wires is conducive to network operation. Patch panel, as a crucial element of an interconnected network cabling, plays an important role in the administration of the telecommunications network.

Brief Introduction of Patch Panel

Patch panel, also named as jack field, is a passive device with a number of ports that usually of the same type. It is a network part that commonly used in computer networking, recording studios, radio and television. A patch panel can be mounted in a network rack, lying above or below the network switch. Classified by the number of ports, there are 12-port patch panel, 24-port patch panel and 48-port patch panel.

Uses of Patch Panel

A patch panel acts as a connector in network, which indicates that if anything goes wrong with it, the entire system may fail. It is absolute the way that can transfer lines from one place to another successfully. And the patch panel does provide several uses for network running.

  • Used for Managing Cables Easily

A variety of cables can be connected to one patch panel, which can reduce cable congestion. In addition, the patch panel can use a label such as location and desktop number for identification. For example, users can easily find the fault that may exist in the switch or in the cable through the labels when they encounter a connection error. Besides, using a patch panel allows users to change the configuration of the network or cabling to introduce more devices without having to rearrange the equipment or re-run. This will do helpful for protecting the equipment. Thus patch panel can crate a cleaner and more organized way for cable management.

  • Used for Saving Space

Patch panel contains many ports, so users can save much valuable rack space by using a high-density patch panel. This is particularly useful in data center. And in another aspect, it can help to reduce network cost.

  • Used for Increasing Working Efficiency

Using a patch panel can help users connect and disconnect network to homes without going into actual location, which can greatly improve efficiency and work flow.

Fiber or Copper Patch Panel?

Patch panel can be applied in fiber and copper cabling systems. The main purpose of fiber patch panel is managing fiber optic cables. It is generally believed that fiber patch panel deserves a higher price than the copper one.

In terms of structure, for copper patch panel, each pair of cables has an independent port while the fiber one needs two for one pair of wires. This is because one port of fiber patch panel is used as the transmitting end while the other one acts as the receiving end. Although there is a slightly difference, the two types both functioned as a terminate unit, offering an organized and efficient way for cable management.

Conclusion

Patch panel is a good solution for cable management. There is no doubt that patch panel is an essential component in cabling network due to its uses. It’s a great addition in getting a better network. FS.COM, who is always committed to creating a better telecommunication solutions, offers many kinds of patch panel with good performance.
