AbstractAn optical fiber cable management panel includes at least one slideable drawer and structure within the drawer for cable management and/or connection to other devices. At least two tray inserts drop into the drawers to provide the appropriate management and connection devices. Each of the drop-in plates includes fastener structure to accommodate removable securement of the drop-in plates to the drawer. The drop-in plates accommodate selected fiber management components thereon. The fiber management components can include radius limiters, adapters, or LEDs. A method of providing fiber management components in a cable management panel includes operably mounting at least two drop-in trays in a drawer, each of the drop-in trays including a fiber management component.
