MINNEAPOLIS -- Fiber management vendor Clearfield is expanding its FDP Wall Mount Panel product line. The “PON in a BOX” series now includes 36 and 96-port options, all with support for PON-based applications.


Ring-cut capable, this series of Wall Mount Panels is designed for deploying PON-based FTTH networks in multiple-dwelling units (MDUs), allowing for up to 144 ports from a single deployment point. With the Clearview Cassette as its foundation, the FieldSmart FDP 36, 96 and 144-Wall Mount Panels use the same components as the other elements of the FieldSmart platform. This allows the user to match growing fiber needs and unique applications with the series of port sizes available.


Triangle Communications, a telco in Havre, Mont., used the Wall Mount Panel line when it needed a versatile, easy-to-work-with and cost-effective solution to terminate outside plant fiber optic cable at a customer location in its new FTTx installations. Ben Calvert, lead engineer, explains, “The versatility that the wall mount panel provides allows us to use one product to fit a variety of customer needs. In many of our FTTx applications space is limited, so having the ability to grow without having to replace the wall mount panel is a big plus.”
