YOURx-TAP

The YOURx-TAP provides a secure demarcation point between the service provider network and multiple customer environments – SFU, MDU or business. YOURx-TAP gives the network service provider both the ability to store slack fiber as well as provide a test access point (TAP) for ease of deployment and network maintenance without needing to have access to the interior of the customer premise. With the ability to accept a variety of drop cables, YOURx-TAP can be wall or pole mounted, and can be integrated into any network architecture and deployment.

Product Details

Slack storage of excess fiber has always been an issue within network design and deployment. The YOURx-TAP, with the smallest demarcation footprint in the industry, provides the ability to store up to 600 feet (182.88 m) of slack fiber storage (300 feet - 91.44 m per reel) using the FieldShield® Deploy Reel with 900 μm FieldShield StrongFiber®. This eliminates the need for having a large, bulky and unsightly box on the side of an SFU, MDU or business location, to store excess or unused fiber.

FieldShield Deploy Reels are easily installed into YOURx-TAP by simply snapping them onto the post bracket that is mounted inside the box. Each post bracket has a built-in feature that locks the deploy reel in place once the fiber has been pulled to the specified location. 

Designed for all environments, the YOURx-TAP has a gasketed cover, watertight duct fittings and is made from impact and UV resistant PBT and PC material. Clearfield optical fiber terminations have been designed, tested and certified to GR-326.
