The plug-and-play wall box targets multiple dwelling unit/multiple tenant unit (MDU/MTU) environments, where Clearfield says its use can streamline deployments by reducing a traditionally four-step process into a single operation.

Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD) has taken the wraps off the FieldSmart Fiber Delivery Point (FDP) Indoor 288-Port Wall Box. The plug-and-play wall box targets multiple dwelling unit/multiple tenant unit (MDU/MTU) environments, where Clearfield says its use can streamline deployments by reducing a traditionally four-step process into a single operation.

The wall box leverages Clearview’s Black Ribbon Cassette to enable the containment of feeder fibers, distribution fibers, splitter modules, splicing, and unused splitter output storage within a single enclosure. It supports the use of Multi-fiber Push On (MPO) connectors for 12- to 24-fiber cabling. The FieldSmart FDP Indoor 288-Port Wall Box can house up to nine high-density splitters and supports from 12 to 288 distributed ports and up to 24 feeder ports. A side lock provides security. Mounting the box requires a single technician, Clearfield states.

“Today’s environment has forced service providers to provide reliable broadband faster than ever to keep communities connected, working and learning,” said Kevin Morgan, chief marketing officer at Clearfield. “MDUs’ varying architectural layouts present unique challenges for deploying fiber, both logistically and aesthetically. The combination of our solutions within this FDP eliminate common deployment challenges and offer greater speed and fewer labor costs for MDU, MTU, and other carrier applications.”

“As service providers continue to build out FTTH, space and time constraints in construction are major factors,” added Chris Wilson, director of plant construction for Hotwire Communications. “Clearfield has stayed ahead of these ever-changing situations with, yet again, another amazing product that will streamline our business and deployment.”
