Central Office

Central office, or head-end, is a hub or centrally located point in a service provider network at which a conglomerate signal is distributed to optical nodes in neighborhoods or premise locations, carrying voice, data, and/or video services to end users.

For most service providers, fiber optics represent a large segment of the network infrastructure in and out of the central office. This technology allows for a large amount of bandwidth to be fed into the central office and processed, redirected, and/or distributed to the downstream network.

Timbercon central office products are designed and manufactured to provide superior performance and durability for a multitude of applications from switch interconnects to outside plant.
