Midcontinent Communications is ramping up its fiber to the premises (FTTP) offerings, especially to the commercial business sector, and is using Clearfield for scalable fiber solutions. Midcontinent's service area covers more than 240 communities in the Dakotas and parts of Minnesota, with 250,000 customers.

Midcontinent has partnered with Clearfield on a number of fiber-based solutions, most recently with the vendor's xPAK cassette and FieldSmart Fiber Delivery Point (FDP) PON in a PED. The xPAK is engineered to land small port count fiber terminations and optical components as conveniently and inexpensively as possible, according to the vendor. The company adds that FieldSmart FDP is designed to allow for FTTP rollouts without a large initial capital expense.
