Clearfield enhances cabinet line

Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management for communication service providers, has announced an enhancement to the WaveSmart® Ruggedized Splitter that dramatically reduces the space needed for deployment, the company said.

Backwards-compatible to the entire line of FieldSmart fiber distribution cabinets, the addition of an optical staging plate feature now provides the option to either reuse existing space for placing the idle splitter legs or doubles the density of that same area.

Designed with performance in mind, the new, highly dense WaveSmart Optical Staging Plate allows for quick install and removal of splitter legs using adapters that support quick “Red Light” port testing or identification.

The Clearfield WaveSmart ruggedized optical splitters are designed for hardened outside plant environments and ship from the factory equipped with either SC or LC connectors on the ends of the splitter legs. The ruggedized splitters, available in 1:32, 1:16 or 1:8 configurations, are used in all FieldSmart PON Cabinets, Wall Boxes, PON-in-a-Ped and PON inserts.

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