Cabinet Upgrades

Over the years cabinets tend to get crammed with many additional network components as technology evolves for the delivery of new services. But extra equipment can often push a cabinet beyond its thermal limits, raising the internal temperature and reducing the reliability and working lifespan of the equipment inside. Not to mention the many expensive truck rolls to fix issues with equipment that is working outside or at the edge of its specified operational limits.

Cabinet parts also break or wear down; power systems become overloaded, and sometimes upgrade or replacement parts are no longer available from the original vendor. Yet a full system upgrade or cabinet replacement may not be necessary or even warranted at a given location.

What’s the solution?

Choose one of TXP’s many off-the-shelf upgrade solutions for existing outside plant cabinets. And if you need something that does not yet exist, we can custom tailor a solution for your specific needs.

Our upgrade solutions for existing cabinets include:

  • Cabinet specific fan trays for additional air flow and cooling
  • Generic or cabinet specific door mounted heat exchanger units
  • Cabinet ceiling damper actuator upgrade (from 12V to 48V design with alarms)
  • Cabinet specific rectifier upgrades including remotely manageable and redundant system designs
  • Generic of cabinet specific Hubbell upgrade kits for generator hookup
  • Cabinet specific battery trays for installation of additional battery capacity

But what if you want to install the kit yourself? We can help there too. We can train your team on site during the first install. Once they learn all the details of the process, we will certify your installers, allowing them to continue to install that kit model in your network while maintaining your TXP guarantee.

Our toll-free support line is available for questions or troubleshooting. The day after the install, or a year later, we will stand behind our product.

TXP Launches New MBU/MDU Mounting Kits for 7200 Series ONTs

TXP Launches New MBU/MDU Mounting Kits for 7200 Series ONTs

New Kits Yield Major Improvement for FTTH Service Delivery to MDUs


RICHARDSON, TX–(MARKET WIRE)–Aug 22, 2007 — TXP (OTC BB:TXPO.OB – News), a leading provider of GPON Optical Network Terminal (ONT) solutions for service providers worldwide, announced a new set of Multi-Business Unit/Multi-Dwelling Unit (MBU/MDU) mounting kits designed to significantly lower installation costs and improve service in multi-tenant FTTP-based service delivery applications.

Building off the flexibility of TXP’s industry-leading Power Over Ethernet (PoE) powered 7200 series mini ONTs, the new kits enable the easy installation of multiple ONTs in higher density MBU/MDU applications. By converging ordinary Single-Family Unit (SFU) ONTs into an MBU/MDU bundle, service providers benefit from lower start up costs compared to expensive shelf-based units, and are provided with a wide range of ONTs with which to deliver the specific set of services required for each customer.


Each MBU/MDU kit includes all the necessary components to mount a number of 7200 series mini ONTs, including mounting and cable management hardware, enclosure and optional optical splitter. Various enclosures are available for both indoor and outdoor applications.


Powering a shelf-based MDU is often problematic for service providers, with landlords often not wanting to accept responsibility for the provision of bulk power. By using the data service cable, TXP’s PoE powering capability allows each individual ONT to be back-powered from an FTTP PowerHubTM UPS installed inside the subscriber’s home, relieving the service provider from installing additional power cabling while making each subscriber responsible for powering the ONT serving their home.


The demarcation point where the 7200-based MDU kit is located is optimally selected based on fiber location and inside wiring configurations. Wiring closets, where power is usually limited, now become a convenient location for TXP’s MDU to be installed.


“MDUs have proven to be the most problematic FTTP installations for services providers worldwide. The design and installation of FTTP in MDUs is still an expensive and complex undertaking because of different architectures, building materials, wiring configurations, powering issues, and the agendas of landlords, tenants, and carriers. ONT powering, battery backup, and battery maintenance add even further complexity,” says Michael C. Shores, TXP’s President and CEO. “Our new MDU kits enable any mix of our standard 7200 series SFU ONTs to be deployed as an MDU bundle, bypassing the traditional bottlenecks and expense for such deployments when using shelf-based MDUs. Each customer becomes responsible for providing their own power, it requires no additional power cabling and can be flexibly served with the specific services they require,” adds Shores.


Conventional MDU service delivery platforms also represent a traffic constriction point not present in typical FTTP delivery to single family homes. Shelf-based MDU platforms use complex traffic aggregation methods to enable a single PON feed to serve MDU dwellers, with the resultant service often being of lower grade because of traffic over-subscription. In contrast TXP’s ‘passive MDU’ configuration enables the carrier to deliver the same grade of service it delivers to the single family residence to the MDU dweller, and in the same manner.


TXP’s new MDU kits will be available starting Q4 this year.

TXP Releases Armadillo Wall-Mount Cabinet

New All-Inclusive Cabinet Solution Lowers Costs for Low Line Count Deployments

RICHARDSON, TX–(MARKET WIRE)–Aug 23, 2007 — TXP (OTC BB:TXPO.OB – News), a leading provider of OSP cabinet retrofit solutions, announced today the launch of its new Armadillo RE-100 cabinet. The Armadillo, optimized for applications of 100 lines or less, offers a fully self-contained solution for low cost access deployments and significantly lowering installation costs when compared to pad mounted cabinet solutions.

The Armadillo represents a new generation of cabinet for applications at the periphery of the network, providing mounting space for any 19″ rack mount system with a height of 2 RU or less. Within its fully sealed GR-487 compliant enclosure, the Armadillo provides:

Integrated cooling consisting of fan, heatsink and solar shield
Termination and protection for 100 copper lines
Termination, spooling and routing for transport fibers
AC or DC (Express) power supply depending on model selected
Complete environmental and power alarms
Designed for installation in close proximity to end-user customers, the Armadillo was designed with visual appeal in mind, offering a low profile, aesthetically pleasing beige powder coat finish, and mounting arrangements for installation to building studs that are concealed by the cabinet body. A mounting kit is also available for pole mount applications.

“The deployment cost of a pad mounted cabinets is increasingly becoming prohibitively expensive for service delivery applications of 100 lines or less,” says Paul Forzisi, TXP’s Vice President of Marketing. “The Armadillo represents the first fully integrated cabinet solution that includes everything a successful remote deployment requires, most importantly the cooling features that are so critical for the latest generation of access systems. Thanks to the intrinsic cooling features developed as part of the enclosure, its thermal capacity is equal to pad mounted cabinets several times its size,” adds Forzisi.

As service providers’ networks continue to extend further from their central offices, solutions like TXP’s Armadillo are expected to represent an increasing portion of the OSP access infrastructure for last-mile service delivery. To serve this market segment, TXP also offers a degree of customization to the RE-100 to meet the specific needs of each access vendor’s system, including small FTTH Optical Line Terminals and Gigabit Ethernet products. TXP’s standard RE-100 is available immediately.
