Clearfield Guarantees Industry's Lowest Insertion Loss With FiberDeep Patchcords

FiberDeep Sets New Standard at no More Than .2db Loss; Lower Power Consumption

New Product to be Available Without Price Premium

MINNEAPOLIS, March 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearfield, Inc. (Nasdaq:CLFD) has unveiled FiberDeep, a new class of fiber patchcords that guarantees performance at .2dB insertion loss -- fully half that of the industry standard. This metric extends the link loss budget effectively, extending the distance upon which fiber can be deployed. The company announced that FiberDeep will be available immediately, without price premium on every single-mode patchcord and every 12-fiber assembly deployed within a Clearview Cassette.

"A better performing patchcord is an obvious need for today's demanding networks," commented Larry Johnson, founder of The Light Brigade, the industry's leading fiber optic training resource. "A performance guarantee of this type will help broadband service providers to gain headroom in their optical budget for unplanned events, cut fibers, re-splices and extensions."

Improving the Environment

A 2dB improvement in optical budget reduces power consumption by 10%. The power savings, multiplied by even a small thousand home network, is a significant contribution to a community's "go-green" efforts. "As a manufacturer of optical amplifiers, such as EDFAs, we see this performance guarantee as a significant enhancement for our customers," commented Eric Liu, president of Titan Electronics. "A 2dB improvement on 10 mated pairs in an optical link, will not only reduce your carbon footprint, but will reduce the cost of the EDFA required while extending distance 10 kilometers."

Taking Fiber Seriously

"Quality performance of the fiber patchcord is perhaps the most overlooked yet critical element of a network design," explains Johnny Hill, chief operating officer of Clearfield. "FiberDeep goes beyond improving the performance and lowering the cost of network deployment and maintenance. Additionally, the end-face geometries necessary to achieve this kind of performance improves the long-term reliability."
