July 31, 2009 -- Clearfield has introduced its FieldSmart Fiber Entrance Cabinet (FEC). The company says the cabinet reduces the operational expenses associated with fiber deployment, as it facilitates rapid service turn-up times by being easy to install and re-enter.
Reflecting Clearfield's design methodology of providing scalable platforms, the FieldSmart FEC allows the user to dedicate 288 fibers of splice capacity and grow with ganging options as fiber needs dictate. The product is designed to enable easy transitioning from inside to outside plant cable.
The company notes the ordering the product "is made effortless with just three decision points: the number of 288 max-capacity housings needed, the number of splice trays desired, and the number of cable entrance plates required."
"Clearfield's design team is dedicated to reducing the cost of broadband deployment," comments Cheri Beranek Podzimek, president and CEO of Clearfield. "The FieldSmart FEC is another element of our aggressive product development efforts to give broadband service providers the tools needed to make universal broadband deployment a reality."
Joining the company's FieldSmart Fiber Management Platform, the FieldSmart FEC is currently shipping.
