FieldSmart Fiber Crossover Multi-Purpose (FxMP) Patch Panel

Designed to streamline, simplify and reduce the operational costs of deploying fiber, Clearfield’s FieldSmart FxMP fiber patch panel delivers a universal deployment option, making it easier to order, train field staff and support the rapidly growing market for fiber services. This universal panel enables fiber deployments of 1RU (24 ports) up to 11” (288 ports). Like all other FieldSmart products, the FxMP fiber patch panel utilizes the Clearview® Cassette as its 12-port building block.

It provides an interconnect or cross-connect environment for up to 288 SC ports or 576 LC ports of high density fiber for inside plant environments and outside FDH deployments.

Product Details

The FieldSmart FxMP Panel is a high density, low maintenance fiber distribution panel for use in a data style rack/cabinet, a 19” (482.60 mm) or a 23” (584.20 mm) frame. Utilizing the Clearview® Cassette, FieldSmart FxMP Panels are intelligently designed to provide the user with superior fiber access and craft-friendly, radius protected, fiber management for routing and deploying fiber jumpers. 

Stand Alone Panel in a 19” or 23” (482.60 mm or 584.20 mm) Frame

When you already have the frame and want to add just a panel or two of incremental fiber management, the FxMP is configured with front and rear protection blocks for complete slack storage and physical fiber protection.

Stand Alone Panel in an OSP Active Cabinet

Make the crossover into the OSP with the identical product. Patch only environments are supported without additional components, while a rear protection block enables patch and splice (Clearfield’s in-cassette splicing solution) configurations. The common architecture saves you time and money in reducing inventory costs and shorter training period.

Stand Alone Panel in a Data Rack/Cabinet

When you already have a data rack or cabinet and simply need to add fiber management, the FxMP is available to mount in this smaller footprint, providing all the fiber protection you need without the added cost. Available in black.
