Applications

The SmartRoute 1RU 24 Port Panel is designed to simplify and speed up fiber installations when landing 24 to 48 fibers in any interconnect or cross-connect environment. Clearfield’s SmartRoute Panel combines micro distribution cable, spooling technology and MPO connectorization in a single panel to help relieve cable congestion, simplify ordering and eliminate incorrect cable lengths for IFC/OSP cable assemblies while saving labor and installation costs.

Description

Clearfield's SmartRoute Panel combines micro distribution cable, spooling technology and MPO connectorization in a single panel to help relieve cable congestion, simplify ordering and eliminate incorrect cable lengths for IFC/OSP cable assemblies while saving labor and installation costs. The SmartRoute Panel contains two internal spools that can hold up to 200 ft. each of 3mm, 12 fiber micro cable or Clearfield's FieldShield Cable. The panel can provide 24 SC or 48 LC connections in front and MPO, stub or SC/LC on the cabled or far end.

Additionally, the SmartRoute Panel is designed for FieldShield Cable, which makes this panel an ideal solution for cell sites, cell towers and other applications where fiber is exposed to the elements. Used in conjunction with FieldShield ruggedized microduct, this panel is the perfect support to any task no matter the elements or conditions (including direct bury and inside plant "last mile" needs).

Features and Benefits

Cost Savings

  • Simplify Ordering - One panel contains 24 fibers on two spools. This means panel, connectors, cable assembly and slack storage are included in a single panel.
  • Reduce Labor - The internal cable spools reduce upfront deployment costs by simplifying site survey inspections, reducing labor hours and streamlining cable deployment. Pre-connectorized options eliminate splice labor and speed network construction.
  • Save Time - IFC/OSP cable assemblies are typically build to order. Then, if an incorrect length is ordered, more time is lost. In the SmartRoute Panel, the cable assembly is built right in at the right length. SmartRoute spool technology allows an installer to payout exactly the amount of cable needed from the panel leaving the remaining cable safely stored within the panel.
  • Maximize Space - By utilizing micro distribution fiber cable, an instant 85% space savings within ladder racking is gained when compared to standard IFC cable.
  • Simplify Network Design - Straight forward, simple design means installation crews spend less time figuring out how to deploy.

Fiber Flexibility and Utilization

  • Each spool can hold up to 200 ft. of 3mm, 12 fiber micro-distribution cable or FieldShield Cable.
  • For larger applications, each spool can hold 125 ft. of 24 fiber FieldShield Cable with 125 ft. can be utilized.
  • Dual spools can be pulled independently, one spool can be deployed in one direction while the other spool can be deployed with cable in the opposite direction.

 

Integrity

  • Terminations are designed and tested to Telcordia GR-326
  • Clearfield FiberDeep® Guarantee: 0.2 dB insertion loss or less, exceeding industry standards
  • Supports all industry standard singlemode and multimode connectors

 

Protection

  • SmartRoute spool technology allows an installer to payout the exact amount of cable required from the panel, leaving the remaining slack safely stored within the panel
  • Individual radius fingers organize and intuitively manage fiber jumpers
  • Removable front protection provides physical fiber protection reducing service interruptions

 

Access

  • Straight forward, simple design means installation crews spend less time figuring out how to deploy
  • Dual spools can be pulled independently, one spool can be deployed in one direction while the other spool can be deployed with cable in the opposite direction
  • For larger applications, the tool-less removable cover allows SmartRoute expansion spools to deploy cable lengths up to 1,000 feet
  • Removable front adapter plates provide access to pre-terminated assemblies for testing, cleaning, and maintenance

 

Investment

  • Pre-connectorized options eliminate splice labor and speed network construction
  • Internal cable spools reduce upfront deployment costs by simplifying site survey inspections, reducing labor hours and streamlining cable deployment
  • Micro distribution cable, provides an instant 85% space savings within ladder racking, when compared to standard IFC cable
