SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 -- Clearfield Inc. (search for Clearfield), formerly APA Cables & Networks, today announced the FieldSmart Fiber Management Wallbox, a new component in the FieldSmart Fiber Management Platform.

The FieldSmart Fiber Management Wallbox provides 12 to 24 ports of fiber management access and protection. Designs for both the outside plant as well as business-class environments are on display at the FTTH Conference this week in Nashville.

With Clearfield's Clearview Cassette at its heart, the FieldSmart Wallbox provides service providers plug & play integration based on the configuration requirements of the application, say company representatives. The FieldSmart Wallbox supports all cable construction types for both patch-only and patch & splice deployments. All industry standard connector styles are available. The product is ready and available for shipment.

The FieldSmart Wallbox-OSP is designed for the harsh environmental conditions of the outside plant, with full Nema 4Icertification. For ease of integration, the FieldSmart Wallbox-OSP ships with a field-deployed "knock-out" that allows for conduit entry while maintaining Nema 4 performance.

The FieldSmart Wallbox-Riser is ideal for business-class and MDU environments. The FieldSmart Wallbox-Riser is ring-cut capable, supporting feeder and distribution cables through the riser. Both versions provide a swinging bulkhead that supports and protects sub-unit slack storage.

The FieldSmartIFiber Wallbox joins the entire FieldSmart fiber management platform, which is shipping and available from Clearfield.
