FieldSmart Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) 96-Port PON Cabinet

Clearfield’s FieldSmart PON Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) Cabinet family provides an interconnect environment from the feeder network through the optical passive splitter to the distribution network. Designed for the outside plant environment, these cabinets provide a single distribution point to deploy FTTH in environments ranging from rural to urban or densely populated neighborhoods. Providing distribution scalability from 12 to 864 ports, network architecture can be maximized for both existing subscribers as well as future growth opportunities.
