Clearfield Launches New Active Cabinet

Oct. 13, 2023
This all-in-one cabinet can be helpful for fiber expansion plans

Clearfield recently announced the release of its FieldSmart FiberFlex 1700 active cabinet. The cabinet can integrate fiber, power, and active equipment and is versatile enough to fit into any outdoor plant. It was made to be configured for various applications including remote OLTs with PON distribution, wireless base stations with fiber backhaul aggregation, edge compute server support, or active network equipment with backup power needs. With the FiberFlex 1700’s flexible, vertical layout and modular design it can contribute to seamlessly scaled networks as a company continues to grow.

The FiberFlex 1700 can meet cabling needs with its 12 to 432 fiber distribution ports for subscriber PON deployments, as well as complementary splitter capacity. The 1700 is especially supportive for greenfield fiber builds, rural network expansion, and other deployments such as new markets with growth capacity. The cabinet accepts local AC power through the integrated AC Load Center with a generator plug for backup power. Coming it at a height of only 4 feet, it can meet reduced height requirements.

Orders for the FiberFlex 1700 begin on November 15th, and the product will be showcased at Calix Connections 2023 in La Vegas from October 14-17.
