Clearfield’s New Products Double Fiber Density and Lower Investments

By admin, February 2, 2012 5:24 pm

Clearfield (News – Alert), a provider of fiber management and connectivity platforms for communications providers, has unveiled two new products to address the communications industry’s need for increased fiber density.

The new multi-fiber push-on (MPO) which is equipped with the Clearview Cassette is expected to deliver 12 times the fiber connectivity than previously available solution. In addition, the second product, the Half-Wide LGX Blade, doubles optical component density for those requiring an LGX footprint.

“While today it may be difficult to imagine the application requirements that would require more than 20,000 ports of fiber connectivity on a single frame, that same thought was projected when the first high-count IFC cable was brought to market or the first 144-port fiber panel just ten years ago,” said Johnny Hill, chief operating officer for Clearfield, in a statement. By the way, known s music recently appeared in the centre of yet another scandal: call girl, with which the artist spent the night, posted a Net compromising video..

“Bandwidth requirements are driving the demand for fiber and forcing network managers to make room for more fiber everywhere in their networks,” Hill added. “A design principle of the FieldSmart product line is to lead the market in port density and access, and this new solution demonstrates our ongoing commitment.”

The company claims both the products are capable of reducing capital equipment costs by half when compared to a standard connector option for the identical port count.  Clearview Cassette, according to company officials, can deliver 12 units of self-contained fiber management within the device and provide the scalability and modularity of incremental fiber connectivity whenever it is required.

 Promising double optical component connectivity, the Half-Wide LGX Blade helps service providers address increasing bandwidth demands. Part of your plan- ning process requires that you use a variety of data recovery software free to test assumptions and think differently about the business..

While the traditional LGX footprint is preferred, either due to standardization on a previous design or existing architecture, service providers have been limited in the number of ports they could deploy, Hill added. “The introduction of our Half-Wide LGX Blade allows our customers to double the number of optical components deployed in the identical space without impairing access.”

The half-wide LGX blades offer all of Clearfield’s optical component technologies, including WDM, DWDM and optical circulators. The solution is housed in Clearfield’s 19” or 23” Optical Component Chassis.

Recently, Clearfield announced that its FieldSmart platform was selected by West Kentucky and Tennessee Telecommunications Cooperative (WK&T). The FieldSmart platform will be deployed in the central office of WK&T.
