The new NEBS3E Shelf Assembly will be the replacement product. It became available to order on May 5, 2000. This new Shelf Assembly offers cosmetic changes including branding/name changes as well as fiber management enhancements. The fiber management enhancements are reels on the side of the cabinet for wrapping fiber (proper bend radius is maintained) and a fan tray that can be removed for maintenance and filter replacement without disturbing the fiber management on the front of the shelf. These are the major differences between the two shelf assemblies. Other changes are minor in nature.

Replacement Part
Description of New Part



The new shelf assembly is functionally equivalent to the EOL part but includes enhanced fiber management features.



The new Fan Tray Filter is backward compatible with Fan Tray Assembly and Shelf Assembly.

Please note that the Fan Tray Assembly (15454-FTA) will not be going EOL. The Fan Tray Assemblies are not interchangeable between the two Shelf Assemblies so the 15454-FTA will still be available for spares and replacements on currently deployed 15454-SA-NEBS3s.
