Fiber Optic Products

The FieldSmart Hub Collapse Cabinet (HCC) is designed for the cable operator looking to separate their passive infrastructure from the electronics without the need for a traditional, and expensive, standard hub architecture. Hub collapse environments allow passive architecture to be placed in the most craft-friendly place for circuit and wavelength allocation and associated MAC (moves, adds, and changes) work - on the ground. Providing up to 120-fiber terminations using the Clearview® Cassette and up to 32 LGX compatible CWDM/ DWDM modules, the FieldSmart Hub Collapse Cabinet (HCC) separates critical active components typically protected in the node, such as Cisco’s O-Hub platform or Aurora V-Hub, and allows existing optical components to be reused throughout the network.

Clearfield’s Hub Collapse Cabinet (HCC) provides a centralized location that will accommodate both optical components and fiber terminations, making it an ideal solution for service providers looking to maximize existing fibers within their network. With a small footprint (32” H x 17” W x 16 ¾” D), real estate costs can be minimized with a variety of mounting options (pole, pad or vault mount).

Features & Benefits

Integrity

  • Terminations are designed and tested to Telcordia GR-326

Protection

  • 12-fiber Clearview Cassette protects fiber from environmental and human factors
  • Rugged cable clamps protect the OSP cable breakouts from twisting and pistoning
  • Patch only buffer tubes are fully protected with ruggedized bend-limiting tubing
  • Snake skin sleeving provides additional buffer tube slack storage protection and manageability for patch and splice (Clearfield’s in-cassette splicing solution) configurations

Access

  • Clearview Cassette allows for quick visual troubleshooting with opening cassette
  • Front access to pre-terminated assemblies with Clearview removable adapter plate
  • Easy two captive fasteners for quick removal of individual cassettes for trouble shooting, splicing or replacing
  • Front and rear access doors
  • Top exit available on HCC Cabinet
  • Optional ground/locate box available

Investment

  • Fiber is deployed in increments of 12, providing the users the ability to scale from 12 ports to full capacity, aligning capital investment with network layout or subscriber revenue
  • Express ports allow for extensions or parallel networks through the cabinet
  • Patch and splice configurations eliminate costs associated with jacketed IFC cabling, hand-holes and splice cases
  • Eliminates building costs and permits for physical hub location structures
