Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management for communication service providers, has announced the new StreetSmart Small Count Fiber Hand-Off Box, the company said.
This demarc will streamline an operator´s ability to economically extend fiber networks further into the network, supporting the roll out of 5G, FTTP (fiber-to-the-premise), and wireless access services to more customers. The universality of its design means that any type of carrier can utilize one product across all of its small cell, DAS and MDU builds as these type of networks increase to support Cloud, IoT and other services across municipal, hospitality, transportation, manufacturing and other high-growth industries and applications.
The StreetSmart Small Count Fiber Hand-Off Box is the ideal fiber termination solution for operators that plan to deploy 5G or DAS as it supports extending the fiber fronthaul and backhaul capabilities throughout the footprint. It is also cost effective for carriers targeting smaller MDUs to support FTTP services.
Up to 12 fibers can be terminated in one of four configurations in this craft friendly box via an angled adapter feature that provides ease-of-connectivity, cleaning and testing. Its compact size makes it ideally suited to be concealed inside a mono pole in small cell and DAS networks. Another key value is the ability to land the carrier fiber on one side and have craft technician separation from the contractor/installer on the other side. Designed with a hinged plate and 216 locking mechanism, access is secured between craft responsibilities. The craft friendly GR-771 box can also be mounted aerially, on a pole or wall.
