Clearfield (CLFD), Fiber to Anywhere

Wireless Environments

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.

By offering a scalable single building block solution, Clearfield is able to provide a flexible and cost-effective solution for standardization of passive equipment across multiple wireless carriers and the variety of equipment housings encountered. Standardization improves efficiency and service turn-up time as learning curves are reduced.
