The new shelf assembly (15454-SA-NEBS3E) offers cosmetic changes, including branding/name changes, as well as fiber management enhancements. The fiber management enhancements include reels on the side of the cabinet for storing excess fiber jumper slack 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 (Table 3).
