Clearfield(R) Extends Product Offering With Licensing Agreement For Pushable Fiber

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearfield, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management solutions for Fiber to the Premises (FTTp) deployments , today announced an intent to license Britain's Miniflex products and systems. As a key development partner and supplier of the Miniflex product line for the U.S. marketplace, Clearfield will bring the cost-saving benefits of the Miniflex pushable drop-cable solution and extend its application for multi-fiber deployment. When integrated with the Clearview R Cassette and the Clearview xPAK, service providers can push multiple fiber assemblies directly into the entire FieldSmart R fiber management platform. The product will be on display at the FTTH Conference in Las Vegas, Monday, September 13 in Clearfield's Booth #510.

Reducing the Cost of Fiber Deployment

"Besides Miniflex's innovative approach to fiber drops in the last mile, the multi-fiber applications of their solution aligns perfectly with the modular and flexible capabilities of Clearfield's FieldSmart product line," says Johnny Hill, Chief Operating Officer for Clearfield. "Integrating Miniflex into the Clearview Cassettes and xPAK Cassettes opens up a range of cost and time-saving alternatives to traditional methods of addressing small-count applications of business class services, cell-backhaul, consolidation of splice points, demarcation extensions and fiber exhaust. We are excited to bring this unified solution to the market, addressing our customer challenges in building fiber networks."

"Partnering with Clearfield is an extension of Miniflex's commitment to providing clever industry-leading technology that reduces the cost of fiber deployment," explains Tony Stockman, Managing Director of U.K.-based Miniflex. "While others in the industry continue to use antiquated drop-cable technology that puts fiber at risk by pulling it through a conduit, the Miniflex solution removes the cost of expensive pulling-eyes and associated installation equipment. Now with Clearfield, this same level of cost-saving precision is extended to multi-fiber environments."
