Clearfield (NASDAQ: CLFD), a specialist in fiber management for communication service providers, has announced a new adapter configuration available for its Clearview Blue Cassette.

The manufacturer notes that placing an increasing number of fiber connections into crowded rack space is a common issue faced by fiber network providers. In response to this challenge, the new 48-port option for the Clearview CS Connector adapter plate ensures that service providers can scale with increasing data rates and quickly meet customer needs.

Per a Clearfield statement:

The number of fiber connections needed in today’s market continue to multiply. Network operators are challenged to fit as many fibers in tight spaces as possible. The new CS Connector option provides 12-48 ports of connectivity, using 1.25 mm ferrules to provide 33% more density than the traditional LC connector cassette. Additionally, this doubles the density for Clearview-enabled wall boxes, panels, cabinets and pedestals.

This new capability within Clearfield’s product offering means that service providers can now easily scale to meet increasing customer take rates, while reducing labor and installation times, and overcoming common real estate challenges in many application environments.

“The Clearview Blue Cassettes are the core building block of nearly every product within our FieldSmart fiber management system portfolio,” notes Johnny Hill, Clearfield’s chief operating officer. “By increasing the density of our Clearview Blue Cassette, we are furthering the ability of all FieldSmart products to reduce the costs associated with managing and deploying fiber optic networks in a variety of scenarios.”

The company adds that its Clearview Blue Cassettes offer multiple configuration options, tool-less installation, in-cassette buffer tube/ribbon slack storage, and front access-only designs.

"Clearview Blue is a six component, tool-less system made up of a top cover, splice tray, buffer tube/ribbon slack storage, cable assembly tray and adapter plate. Parts snap together to support desired application requirements," states Clearfield. "Providing a plug-and-play (MPO/MTP) configuration for any network environment, dual MPO/MTP access is available on either side of the cassette."

Clearfield also offers CS Duplex patch cords to support the new configuration. More information on the Clearview Blue Cassette can be found on the associated product data sheet or at
