Clearfield Introduces New WDM Packaging To Telecom Market

Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ: CLFD) announced its latest innovation in reducing the cost of optical component delivery. In addition to the industry standard package of discrete (unpackaged) and LGX style modules, Clearfield is announcing four application-specific packaging alternatives.

“Clearfield’s Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) devices utilize advanced thin-film filter and array wave guide grating (AWG) technologies to address the mux and demux needs of such diverse application environments as node segmentation, cell backhaul deployment and the delivery of business class services,” comments Johnny Hill, COO of Clearfield. “Responding to service providers who told us that ‘one size does not fit most,’ Clearfield provides four unique alternatives to ensure that no matter what your preference or environment, your deployment can be convenient and cost-effective.”

Clearview xPAKThe Clearview xPAK is a compact and convenient means by which to land up to seven input/output ports. It can be deployed as a standalone device or as part of Clearfield’s “Clearview Landed” program -- integrated into a Clearfield designed enclosure or many industry-leading enclosures from the provider of your choosing.

Clearview CassetteThe foundation of the Clearfield FieldSmart product line, the Clearview Cassette, is the most scalable alternative and provides up to 36 input/output ports of optical component connectivity. The Clearview Cassette then populates any “Clearview Multiplied” product across the network, including FieldSmart inside plant panels, outside plant cabinets, and access-network products, such as pedestals and wall box enclosures.

Clearview High Density CassetteDelivering up to eight WDM optical devices in a single Clearview Cassette, the high density configuration leads the industry in the number of optical components housed in the smallest space.

Pizza BoxFor deployment in a head-end rack or OSP cabinet, the Clearfield Pizza Box can deploy multiple optical devices in a 19” or 23” 1RU format.

Price and DeliveryWDM modules and all packaging options are shipping, and are being offered to market through distributors, such as Power & Tel. Contact a sales representative for a price quote on your particular application environment.
