Distribution Frame Enclosure for Customer Premises

The 3M Telecommunications VKA range includes indoor distribution frame enclosures for many current fibre optic and copper wire telecommunications applications. They can be found wherever space is at a premium and cost-effective installation is required.

The VKA range can be used as breakout frames or jumper rings for fibre optic systems with between 12 and 96 fibres.

Privately owned or rented copper and fibre optic networks can now be used cost-effectively with digital transmission systems. The use of internationally standardised interfaces is a prerequisite for problem-free connection to existing terminal equipment. The NT1 from 3M Telecommunications is the network termination unit for a basic ISDN connection and for permanent, structural 64 kbps connections. The NT1 is designed for various customer requirements: 3M supplies the NT1 in the form of a 19" rack, an NT1 wall-mounted enclosure, an NT1 subrack and additional components of the E0 transmission system.
