The Clearfield design philosophy is the difference between the pen and the pencil.
Designing a pen when a pencil will do only increases the cost to the customer with no real added benefit. Ensuring that the basic rules of fiber management are met and reliably maintained, simple, yet innovative, features are only added when the benefit results in lower deployment costs through reduced installation and service turn-up time, elimination of other material costs, and total cost of ownership.
When it comes to distribution, consolidation, management and protection of fiber, nothing comes close to Clearfield’s stream-lined, practical approach. Designed for scaleable deployment, craft-friendly operation, and unsurpassed performance, Clearfield’s simplicity in design delivers your lowest total cost of ownership. And with the flexibility to deploy the product platform in your entire range of fiber applications – whether it’s FTTp, cell backhaul, distributed antenna, node collapse or other premise or commercial environment, Clearfield is your fiber connectivity specialist.
Clearfield sets the standard for fiber performance with FiberDeep cable assemblies, while lowering the cost of broadband deployment with the FieldSmart fiber management platform and the CraftSmart OSP enclosure system.
FieldSmart is the only fiber management platform to be designed around a single architecture – Clearview Classic, Clearview Blue and the small count Clearview xPAK – for the inside plant, outside plant and access network. FieldSmart supports a wide range of panel and cabinet configurations, densities, connectors and adapter options, and are offered alongside an assortment of passive optical components.
CraftSmart is the industry’s only field enclosure system optimized for fiber deployment at the network’s last miles access point. These thermoplastic above and below-grade enclosures provide turn-key physical fiber protection for passive optical networks.
FiberDeep guarantees .2dB or less insertion loss on every singlemode patch cord and 12-fiber assembly deployed within the Clearview Cassette. No longer considered a commodity in today’s cable plant, 4G networks require superior performance standards – and Clearfield delivers fiber connectivity products to ensure consistent reliability.
WaveSmart Optical Components are custom-built for the unique light requirements and interoperability needs of PON splitting, fiber exhaust scenarios and coarse and dense division multiplexing. Clearfield delivers unparalleled fiber performance with its optical components.
Installing fiber where you want it, when you want it, cost-effectively is the promise of the FieldShield Optical Fiber Protection Platform. Regardless of application, FieldShield takes fiber through the fields and streets to the home or business, up the tower to the antenna or throughout the riser to the data center or desk. Used in conjunction with Clearfield's FieldSmart fiber management solutions for the central office, outside plant and access network, FieldShield protects fiber through every distribution point of the network.
With a variety of products, Clearfield is your answer to for fiber network needs. We’ve sharpened our pencil – delivering superior form, fit and function at a price point un-matched in the industry.
