To ensure everything needed is at the installer’s fingertips, all potentially used components, including the splice sleeves, are included within the Clearview xPAK packaging kit. Similar to the concept of a model airplane, any unused element is simply disposable.Application Environments Clearview xPAK is the ideal fiber management device when up to six fibers are landed or an optical component device is deployed in a remote location. Application environments include cell back-haul, business class service delivery, node segmentation, fiber exhaust scenarios, utility sub-stations, or fiber-to-the-desk deployment. Enclosure Options Clearview xPAK can be deployed as a stand-alone device, or, for an additional layer of protection, look for a series of new announcements from Clearfield on FieldSmart Fiber Deliver Point (FDP) products for access-network environments. “Clearview Landed” Clearview xPAK will integrate into a company’s or municipality’s favorite inside and outside plant enclosures. Look for the “Clearview Landed” symbol to indicate an enclosure that is “xPAK Ready.” Price and Delivery Clearview xPAK is shipping and is being offered to the market through distribution, including Power & Tel. Prices start at under $100. “I’ve asked other vendors to look at this issue, and nobody has anything that’s more condensed and smaller to use,” adds Brian Hanson, commercial construction manager for Midcontinent Communications. “This whole device will cost about $100, and it’ll work for many things that we’re currently doing right now.” About Clearfield, Inc.
