Clearfield certified for major service provider market applications

Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management for communication service providers, has announced that its fiber termination process used to manufacture Clearfield LC/UPC 900 μm 1.6 mm and 2.0 mm jumpers and fiber assemblies have been tested by an independent test lab compliant to the Telcordia, GR-326-Core requirements, the company said.

With the Telcordia GR-326 achievement, Clearfield now provides maximum assurance for the Tier 1 telecommunications market that requires the highest standards for manufacturing processes, procedures and quality components.

As major service providers seek to provide higher density in their networks with a smaller form factor connector, many opt to use LC/UPC jumpers and fiber assemblies in an Outside Plant (OSP) environment. The Clearfield LC/UPC connectors surpassed rigorous testing to meet a myriad of environmental, handling, use and mechanical functions to survive the stresses in the OSP environment.

Clearfield designs, manufactures and distributes fiber optic management, protection and delivery products for communications networks.
