StreetSmart Aerial FDH

When the network deployment plan calls out for an aerial application, Clearfield’s StreetSmart Aerial FDH provides an interconnect environment from the feeder network through the optical passive splitter to the distribution network. Designed specifically for aerial/strand mount applications in the outside plant environment, these enclosures provide a single distribution point to distribute FTTH in rural, urban or dense neighborhoods.

Product Details

The StreetSmart Aerial FDH is the complete solution for managing up to 288 port distribution fibers for an outside plant FTTx PON application. Factory pre-terminated (1- 288 or 1– 144) fiber cables, eliminates splicing at the terminal and allows the service provider the ability to define and assign the feeder and distribution ports, allowing them to customize each individual deployment.

The Aerial FDH has been designed for aerial or strand mount fiber deployment within the network architecture. Designed with many of the same features as the YOURx-Aerial Terminal, the Aerial FDH includes 4 individual hinged covers with four side entrance cable access ports – two on each end.

The factory installed, pre-terminated OSP cable is spliced on the back side of the unit and is separated and secured from the craft accessible feeder and distribution connection ports, located in the front of the enclosure.

The compact design of the Aerial FDH incorporates individual blocks of 12 LC/APC adapters that are housed in multiple sized faceplates, providing maximum configuration capabilities. The symmetrical design of the unit incorporates fiber management and bend-radius protection for all fibers being deployed.

The Aerial FDH has room to hold up to 9 individual compact ruggedized splitter modules, allowing the service provider to add splitters as needed, allowing them to grow as they go and minimize investment in capital equipment related to the turn-up of revenue-generating circuits. The Aerial FDH is a sealed, free breathing enclosure that provides protection in the harshest OSP environments.
