Abstract

See full text

A low profile fiber network interface device is disclosed including a housing enclosure having a front cover hinged to a rear fixed housing portion. An inner connection divider wall is also hingedly fixed to the enclosure which is rotatable between a position which the divider wall lies against the fixed housing portion, and to an open position where it lies adjacent to the open cover. The divider wall also includes a rotatable working tray which rotates to a substantial horizontal position, and the tray includes devices for retaining coiled fiber in position. The divider wall also includes an interface wall including a plurality of fiber optic connector headers whereby one side is accessible only from the back side of the divider wall, whereas the other header is accessible from the front of the divider wall. In this manner, when the divider wall is locked in the closed position, users cannot access the opposite side which is dedicated to the telecom service.
