Due to the high variability of MDU architectures, extensive engineering has been required to ensure proper cable lengths for FTTp deployments. StrongFiber minimizes pre-engineering because the 4.5” FieldShield StrongFiber Deploy Reel, upon which StrongFiber is shipped, can be mounted at the destination site and the desired length is simply pulled from the wheel to the access point. Once the pullable connector has reached its destination, the connector assembly is completed with the supplied connector housings and the connector is mated to the adapter. The remaining slack on the reel is pre-stored with no further slack management required. The terminated end on the wheel is pre-tested, cleaned and mated in a Clearfield® factory environment, leaving the technician to simply mate the patch cord to the adapter on the wheel. The small form factor of the cable assembly and deploy reel allows the StrongFiber to be pulled and slack stored from the customer demarcation point. StrongFiber as an ISP Cable reduces pre-engineering and on-site installation time for MDU and riser deployments.

Description

The FieldShield StrongFiber Deploy Reel is a 4.5” x 1” spool, designed to hold up to 300 feet of StrongFiber. It has an integrated bulkhead and pre-mated adapter that can easily be mounted into a small form factor fiber management element. The small form factor of the 900 μm fiber makes slack storage minimal and easy to accommodate, while the exceptional pull strength of StrongFiber makes it craft-friendly and easy for the technician to handle without fear of fiber damage. Less cable weight means reduced co-efficient of friction (COF). This results in quicker installations because there is minimal friction as the cable is pulled through bends and turns throughout the microduct route-path. Reducing the size requirements of the access point (above or below grade) provides a more aesthetically pleasing solution in the neighborhood.

Features and Benefits

Integrity

  • Terminations are designed and tested to Telcordia GR-326
  • Supports singlemode SC connectors

Protection

  • Deploying StrongFiber with a FieldShield StrongFiber Deploy Reel allows the installer to payout the exact amount of cable required from the reel, leaving the remaining slack safely stored on the reel
  • Exceptional pull strength makes it easier for the technician to handle without fear of fiber damage

Access

  • Small form factor 900 μm fiber makes slack storage minimal and easy to accommodate
  • Straight forward, simple design means installation crews spend less time figuring out how to deploy
  • Low co-efficient of friction (COF) allows StrongFiber to be pulled through bends and turns throughout the microduct route path with minimal friction reducing deployment times

Investment

  • Pre-terminated cable spools reduce upfront deployment costs by simplifying site survey inspections, reducing labor hours and streamlining cable deployment for MDU and Riser deployments
