Clearfield Adds Wall Mount Panels for MDU Fiber Delivery

MINNEAPOLIS — Fiber management equipment manufacturer Clearfield announced the FieldSmart FDP Outdoor 48-Port Wall Mount Panel. This new fiber delivery point, which is already shipping, bridges the gap between large-scale outside-plant deployments (288 ports and up) that require traditional outside-plant cabinets and small-scale wall-mount-panel solutions that support only a small number of users. Supporting up to four Clearview Cassettes, the new FieldSmart FDP Wall Mount scales up to 48 users, providing full fiber protection and scalability when the inside of a structure is inaccessible.

“While always beneficial to have access to the inside plant, it is not always possible,” comments Johnny Hill, Clearfield's chief operating officer. “The rapid proliferation of fiber in the outside plant and the diversity of applications require the development of products that offer a high degree of configurability. The FieldSmart FDP Wall Mount mimics the functionality of a mini-hub providing a variety of distribution applications from straight interconnect to optical components. This new Wall Mount is optimal as a demarcation deployment device for the side of an MDU, office park, or cell tower.”

The FieldSmart FDP Wall Mount is designed for the harsh environmental conditions of the outside plant. For ease of integration, the FDP Wall Mount ships with a field-deployed “knock-out” that allows for conduit entry while maintaining NEMA 4 standards of performance. A swinging bulkhead supports and protects sub-unit slack storage.

With Clearfield’s Clearview Cassette at its heart, the FieldSmart FDP Wall Mount offers service providers plug-and-play integration based on the configuration requirements of the application. The FDP Wall Mount supports all cable construction types for both patch-only and patch-and-splice deployments. All industry-standard connector styles are available.
