V5000, which "side" is sector 1?

Stupid question, but I can’t seem to find the answer in the docs yet:

With the DN/V5000 facing AWAY from you (looking at the “back” of it, where it should be pointed say due North), which “side” is sector 1 and which is sector 2?

Looking “through” it from the back I’m guessing Sector 1 is on the right side and Sector 2 is on the left?

Is that correct?

Yes, that is correct. See image from the ‘front’ of the V5000. - Bruce

Here is a better picture for extra clarification. This is as viewed from the top of the V5000. - Bruce



to make it more clear cause in their answers is not … sector 1 is on the side where u attach the fiber, sfp+

When you’re planning your network in the LINKPlanner or using cnMaestro to configure and setup the sites and nodes it’s all visualised as if you are looking from the top of the unit:

Once you in the field it’s important that the installer points the front of the DN in the direction planned in those tools, this ensures the sites are aligned to the plans you have made.


But you are correct the SPF+ is on the Sector 1 side, I suspect for lab work this is a good aid to remember, thank you!
