Product Details

With the Clearview® Cassette as its foundation, the FieldSmart FSC Cross-Connect Cabinet uses the same components as the FieldSmart Fiber Crossover Distribution System (FxDS) deployed in the central office. This enables service providers to standardize on a single building block, allowing them to stock a single fiber management component for either environment. Technicians also have the ease of working with a single fiber architecture for central office or outside plant deployment - saving training and installation time. Using Clearview, FieldSmart changes the rules of fiber management. Optimal access is ensured to all ports and superior fiber protection is integrated within the Clearview Cassette. 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. Further, labor and other field costs are minimized through this craft-friendly layout.
