Abstract:
A fiber distribution hub (10) includes an exterior cabinet housing (12), a cabinet door (34, 38), a distribution panel (52, 54), and a parking door assembly (70). The distribution panel (52, 54) located in a cable holding volume (25) defined by the exterior cabinet housing (12) includes a fiber distribution field (56) formed of connector adapters (58) that provide a connection between feeder cables and distribution cables. The distribution panel (52, 54) includes a pivot axis opposite a swinging side (76), where the swinging side (76) moves about the pivot axis between a partially accessible configuration and a fully accessible configuration. The parking door assembly (70) moveably connects to the swinging side of the distribution panel (52, 54). The parking door assembly (70) includes a parking door (72) including a connector holder retaining structure (120) configured to retain a plurality of fiber optic connectors (55) and a hinge structure (84, 86) that connects the parking door to the swinging side of the distribution panel.
