Clearfield, Channell Announce Integrated Pedestal Kit

MINNEAPOLIS -- Clearfield, which specializes in fiber management for FTTP deployments, announced the integration of its “PON in a PED” insert with a custom variation of the Channell MAH1212 pedestal and underground vault from Channell Commercial Corporation. The new solution, a turnkey package for small-count fiber deployment,  provides fiber connectivity, cable drop splicing, sheath-to-sheath splicing and optical component housings within the Clearview Cassette and integrates it with the slack storage functionality of the Channell pedestal/vault product offerings.

“Many of our clients expressed a desire to provide the same level of slack storage access for small-count installations as we provided with our fiber distribution hubs but couldn’t find a commercially available pedestal/vault solution to address their requirement,” explains Johnny Hill, COO of Clearfield. “In working with Channell Corporation, we were able to make some simple alterations to their product to make it fiber-ready. In its simplest configuration, service providers can use this solution today while future-proofing their network for long-term fiber migration strategies.”

The FieldSmart FDP PON in a PED turnkey package is currently shipping from Clearfield.
