Bandwidth requirements are driving the demand for fiber and forcing network managers to make room for more fiber everywhere in their networks. As the specialists in passive fiber management and connectivity platforms for communications providers, Clearfield offers a comprehensive portfolio of field tested solutions designed to reduce the high costs associated with deploying, managing, protecting, and scaling a fiber optic network to the demands of residential and business customers.

Wireless

Due to the increasing demands of mobile streaming, wireless carriers are looking for creative solutions to improve and reinforce their mobile network capacity. These additional bandwidth requirements create opportunities for network operators to reinforce cell sites by backhauling data over their existing network. The key to capitalizing on these opportunities is to minimize investment and decrease the time to market. However, varying cell site deployment scenarios and network architectures pose challenges for network operators to standardize on a single solution.

Business Class Services

With the explosion of data services at the business level resulting in a need for sophisticated fiber management solutions, network operators are tasked at implementing cost effective solutions with zero down time and optimum performance. Businesses demand network reliability to perform daily operations requiring the standard of quality for fiber management and termination to be raised. Common business scenarios include delivery of multiple gigabits using multiple wavelengths with our carrier class optical components.

CATV Hub Collapse

Traditionally in Headend buildings, a fiber frame would accommodate fiber termination panels, slack management equipment and optical components. However, with electronics manufactures miniaturizing electronics network engineers are attempting to collapse cable television hub architecture, move fiber closer to the consumer, and effectively increase speeds of the network.

MDU

From 100 year old historic buildings, to modern high rise apartments, and everything in between, Multi-Dwelling Units pose many challenges and opportunities for service providers attempting to generate new services. Many Brownfield installations require technicians to become creative, routing fiber along and through walls, floors, and ceilings, or through existing conduit facilities when available, while maintaining an esthetic appeal. Space limitations make simple route paths and access difficult for network reconfiguration, troubleshooting, and maintenance and products and techniques devised for Single Family Units are not well suited for MDUs. As a result, installation time and costs can quickly add up. The key to capitalizing on these opportunities is to minimize investment and decrease the time to market.
