FTTH Drop Cable Assemblies

Our FTTH Fiber Drop Cable Assemblies are designed to connect the fiber access point (hand hole, pedestal or aerial) to the ONT on the home in an FTTH network.

Recognizing that no two networks are alike, Clearfield developed a wide choice of fiber drop cable solutions…giving you the flexibility of configuration that best suits your network environment, network design and fiber drop cable needs. Utilizing factory-terminated connectors, the fiber drop cable provides plug-and-play connectivity. When the assembly is equipped with a FieldShield FlexConnector, gone are the days of proprietary connections. The FlexConnector allows multiple size and type of last mile fiber drop cables to interconnect.
