CLEARFIELD® FASTPASS™ APPROACH PUTS TIME ON YOUR SIDE WITH IN-CASSETTE SPLICING AS FDH DEPLOYMENTS ACCELERATE

Innovative FastPass Fiber Distribution system cuts install time required for homes passed by 50 percent

Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management for communication service providers, has announced the FastPass™ approach using in-cassette splicing. Community broadband operators can reap significant benefits in ramping homes passed deployment plans based on market demand and competitive market forces. The FastPass approach utilizing in-cassette splicing significantly reduces fiber distribution hub (FDH) cabinet costs and speeds installation times allowing for double the number of fiber homes passed in the same amount of time versus legacy install methods. These time savings benefit any operator required to meet strict deployment deadline requirements associated with federal and state broadband funding programs.

“The need to reduce the time required for fiber homes passed is becoming mission critical for broadband providers across the country,” said Jeff Heynen, vice president, broadband access and home networking at Dell’Oro. “Fiber deployments are a land grab right now and whoever gets to the consumer first wins. Clearfield’s FastPass approach challenges the status quo of FDH cabinet installation methods and provides a way for broadband operators to jump to the front of the line for their customers.”

“As fiber broadband deployments rise with federal infrastructure funding, the ability to deploy fiber faster, and at a lower cost, is a clear competitive advantage for any operator,” said Kevin Morgan, chief marketing officer at Clearfield. “Industry observers predict more homes will be passed with fiber in the next five years than has been deployed to date, and Clearfield is committed to helping our customers deploy fiber first as they enter new markets, start new builds, and look to close the digital divide for everyone.”

Splicing within the Clearview cassette is unique: The splicing function is not performed on a separate splice tray but is contained on the cassette itself. The cassette can be easily removed from the cabinet and travel whatever distance is required to reach the splice trailer. The splicing operation remains the same, it’s just performed on the cassette rather than on a separate tray. This eliminates the need for the cable stub, splice trays, the splice closure and the vault needed to store the splice closure and cable stub slack, saving more than $1,000 per FDH cabinet deployed.

FURUKAWA ELECTRIC FITEL® S124X RIBBON FUSION SPLICERS TARGET SPLICING IN THE DATA CENTER

Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. (FEC) is pleased to introduce the FITEL S124X Ribbon Fusion Splicer specifically designed for rapid fusion splicing of high fiber ribbons used in hyperscale data center interconnect applications.

Due to a rapid increase in data traffic, there is an urgent need for higher fiber count optical networks connecting hyperscale data centers. The introduction of high-fiber-count cables, such as the FEC 6912f Rollable Ribbon fiber cables that can replace conventional 864-fiber cables with a similar outer diameter, has presented new challenges of longer splicing work times associated with these ultra-high-fiber-count cables.

The handheld S124X Ribbon Fusion Splicer has been optimized for fusion splicing 200 µm 16-fiber rollable ribbons, allowing a 25 percent reduction in fusion splicing work time compared with conventional 12-fiber fusion splicers.

A broad range of new features that enhance communication, ease of use, portability and field durability have been combined to make the S124X ribbon fusion splicer one of the most powerful and user-friendly splicing machines available today.

  • Single-fiber up to 16-fiber ribbon splicing
  • 15-second high-speed splicing operation
  • Application for both 250 and 200 µm pitch ribbon fiber
  • Easily exchangeable fiber guide V-grooves
  • Simple operation with touch panel and user interface
  • 3 bright LED lights to illuminate operation area
  • Wi-Fi connectivity for smartphone data management and control
