American Fiber Optics was awarded a sole source contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide “Secured Network Floor Boxes” We take pride in our ability to provide custom solutions to difficult and challenging communication environments.

In this case, these boxes are a custom solution that combines security and performance at a minimal cost. The flexible design will allow future upgrade and adaptability as requirements change. We have created the highest density design able to handle 172 fiber connections in a 9” x 10” sealed enclosure. For added security we have backbone couplings that are keyed with up to 8 different configurations. It is the only design on the market that takes the guesswork out of the install.

  4. Density
  5. Ease of Install
