Product Details

The FieldSmart FSC PON is the complete solution for managing 12 to 1,152 port distribution fibers for an outside plant FTTx PON application. Through the incremental design of the Clearview® Cassette, user capacity can be scaled from as few as 12 ports to the maximum configuration of the cabinet, allowing the service provider to align the investment in capital equipment to the turn-up of revenue-generating circuits.
