Clearfield (NASDAQ:CLFD) has announced general availability of its FieldSmart Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) 864-port PON cabinet, the latest addition to the company's portfolio of passive and active cabinets.

The FieldSmart FDH is designed to support fiber network integrity, secure assets, provide access and protect investment. Using the 12-port Clearview Cassette, the FieldSmart FDH is designed to provide multiple cabinet configurations.

"Clearfield's FieldSmart Fiber Distribution Hub leverages a Clearview Cassette-enabled design methodology that is critical to the emerging trends in the marketplace of designing a single fiber network for all applications," said Kevin Morgan, Clearfield's chief marketing officer. "Designed to help our customers expand their fiber-to-the-X deployments for business class, home and edge networks as broadly and cost effectively as possible, this new higher-capacity cabinet complements our existing line of FieldSmart products in a modular shell design."

The FieldSmart FDH 864-port PON cabinet is intended for managing up to 864 distribution fibers for an outside plant FTTx PON application. It incorporates the ability to provide a user-defined feeder/fiber ratio to allow business class, home and edge networks to be housed in a single cabinet. The cabinet includes a new roof design for improved water-shed, solar shielding, and breathability. Mounting options include pad or vault mounted with either a 4-inch or 12-inch riser.

Available for shipping in September, the FieldSmart FDH 864-port cabinet is designed to Telcordia GR-20, GR-487 and GR-3125.
