Put as many pairs as you can fit into the conduit to leave quite a lot of
We bury our splitters with ofdm break outs in waterproof boxes every 500m -
2km or so for the GPON roll out and blow the Fibre to the premise from the
split. Burying splinter boxes prevents vandalism/flooding issues and
accidents. Con's you have to dig it up every time you want to connect
another pair into the ofdm. Fibre blower kit is expensive.
Choose your connectors on the ofdm carefully. LC style connectors are the
norm on SFP(+) optics and isn't angled. This is my personal favorite but
some dislike it. Is rarely the norm for In premise kit especially for pon.
Angled and unangled SC connectors are norm for PON and CPE Home kit. Angled
is better for loss and used primarily on the splitter OFDM but easy to
munge if you connect angled to unangled.
You might even consider just not using a splinter or OFDM patch at all and
just having slack and unterminated fibers. Cheap Chinese Fujikura
equivalent spilcers can be had for around 3000$ now. And splicing is always
better than patching IME.
