FEBRUARY 8, 2010 -- Clearfield Inc. (NASDAQ: CLFD) has teamed with Channell Commercial Corp. to produce a turn-key package for small-count fiber deployment. Clearfield announced the integration of its FieldSmart Fiber Delivery Point (FDP) “PON in a PED” Insert with a custom variation of the Channell MAH1212 pedestal and underground vault. The new integrated offering is designed to provide fiber connectivity, cable drop splicing, sheath-to-sheath splicing, and optical component housings within the Clearview Cassette and integrates it with the slack storage functionality of the Channell pedestal/vault product offerings.

“Many of our clients expressed a desire to provide the same level of slack storage access for small-count installations as we provided with our fiber distribution hubs but couldn’t find a commercially available pedestal/vault solution to address their requirement,” explains Johnny Hill, COO of Clearfield. “In working with Channell Corp., we were able to make some simple alterations to their product to make it fiber-ready. In its simplest configuration, service providers can use this solution today while future-proofing their network for long-term fiber migration strategies.”

Integrating feeder, distribution, drop cable splices, splitters, and cable slack storage for FTTP applications, the FieldSmart FDP PON in a PED is designed to be a cost-effective and flexible option for fiber deployment. The turn-key package provides an adaptation of the locking mechanisms on the Channell pedestal’s main support as well as the incorporation of a ventless design to minimize environmental interference from dust or other contaminants.

The FieldSmart FDP PON in a PED turnkey package is currently shipping from Clearfield.
