Applications

Designed to simplify and speed up fiber installations when landing 24 to 48 fibers in a 1RU fiber panel in any interconnect or cross-connect environment, while providing unmatched savings in installation time, labor costs and performance, 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.
