The Cisco ONS 15454 Fiber Storage Shelf (FSS) provides slack storage for single patch-cords and ribbon fiber cables for Cisco ONS 15454 MSTP deployments. It is used to maintain orderly fiber slack storage for intrashelf cabling as well as for system-level cables. The FSS is engineered by Cisco Systems® to protect both single and ribbon fiber cables from bend-induced losses by using large radius fiber storage reels and bend-limiting fiber entrance hardware. A pull-out drawer allows access to the fiber storage area and, when closed, protects the fiber jumpers from accidental damage. Table 1 outlines fiber storage capacity. The Cisco FSS is equipped with a dual screw grounding point for bonding to the facility ground.
Fiber-storage shelf supports eight 2-meter ribbon cables (8-fiber) plus 40 2-meter 2-mm fiber cables. Ships with ANSI 19" and 23" and ETSI 600mm mounting brackets.
