Course Overview

The flexibility in design and configuration of the Clearview® Cassette is implemented into all of the FieldSmart® products. This is why every participant is extensively trained over the Clearview Cassette before beginning specific inside plant or outside plant training, Clearfield extends this flexibility and scalability to the FieldSmart FxHD System and FxDS Frame Kit. Like a system of building blocks, individual components of each system are configured to the environment in which they are placed for consolidation, distribution, and protection.

In this course, you will learn how to assemble a complete frame kit from “opening the box” to “aligning the front doors on the frame”. We will teach you about our entire product lines of panels, protection options, and integrated optical component solutions. Be prepared to learn how to land cable, route and store buffer tube or ribbon, route jumpers and install splitter modules into these easy to configure, craft-friendly panels.

This section will also include In-Building Access training coving Enterprise, Business Class and MDU solutions by delivering fiber through Indoor Wall Mount Panels. The FieldSmart Fiber Delivery Point (FDP) Wall Box can deliver up to 144 feeds directly to the customers ONT. This training will focus on mounting these panels, routing and proper slack storage methods to safely land and store slack fiber, and various splitter and optical component split methods. These solutions are designed to easily integrate into the FieldShield platform.
