Product Details

Clearfield’s CraftSmart product line provides physical fiber protection for delivering a turn-key passive solution from the central office/headend to the customer premise. The CraftSmart FiberFirst Pedestal provides the most cost-effective non-metallic enclosures in the industry - meeting and exceeding the industry standards for strength, reliability and environmental concerns.

Designed and tested to withstand the harshest of environmental conditions, including UV, chemical and impact resistance, the FiberFirst Pedestal consists of a base and 2 part interlocking removable cover. The rear wall of the cover includes built in multi-use backplane for mounting various products inside of the pedestal. Two industry standard telco security screws (216) are used to attach and lock the cover to the base.

The base of the pedestal includes a built-in feature that allows the customer to add a ground stake to the pedestal.

The FiberFirst Pedestal is designed for maximum flexibility and can be deployed in multiple applications. One pedestal for all applications, eliminating the need for multiple pedestals and reducing the SKU’s, allowing the customer to reduce costs.

Splice Only

The CraftSmart Smart FiberFirst Pedestal incorporates field-tested slack management and fiber splice trays to provide a craft-friendly, splice only access solution. The splice only pedestal configuration supports the specific drop cable, multi-fiber and ring cut requirements. 

PON Configuration

The FieldSmart 144 Port PON Pedestal Insert for Direct Bury is housed in the CraftSmart FiberFirst Pedestal and provides a cost-effective solution to service up to 144-homes within a Clearview® optimized design for PON applications. Accepting up to 13 Clearview Cassettes and five WaveSmart® Ruggedized or High Density Splitters, the PON in Pedestal scales to meet the network requirements when placing a larger PON cabinet is not desired or cost-effective. Providing the ultimate future- proof flexibility, the Pedestal Insert can be deployed as a drop only pedestal, then easily converted to a distributed PON solution when required.

The FieldSmart 144-Port PON Pedestal Insert incorporates field-tested designs to provide a solution that is easily installed and modified. Whether your environment calls for splice only drops or demands the sophistication of a Clearview Cassette solution, a FieldSmart Pedestal Insert can be configured to support multiple access point configurations. Compatible with a variety of RUS listed pedestals, the insert provides splicing and/or interconnect connectivity with slack-storage for drop cable scenarios or mid-span and ring-cut functionality for up to a 288 OSP fiber sheath.
