Fiber Optic Products

The FieldSmart FDH PON Cabinet line is the complete solution for managing 12 to 864 port distribution fibers for an outside plant FTTx PON application. Integrated into the cabinet design is the 12 port Clearview® Cassette, providing multiple cabinet configurations and allowing the service provider to align the investment in capital equipment to the turn-up of revenue-generating circuits.

The FieldSmart FDH PON Cabinet family incorporates a new pyramid shaped roof/solar shield and a reusable/replacable venting feature, providing additional protection for deployed fiber. Mounting options include pad, pole or vault mounted with either a 4” or 12” riser. An optional exterior ground box is also available.
