Clearfield has announced its Clearview xPAK cassette, an innovation in fiber management engineered to land small port count fiber terminations and optical components.

The xPAK simplifies fiber management to the level of a consumable good.?? Clearview xPAK unfolds to a flat, single-piece element in which all required components for fiber protection are integrated.

“When landing small-port count fiber, we went back to the field and asked broadband service providers what they needed,” said Johnny Hill, Clearfield’s COO, in a statement. “They told us … deployment needed to be fast, intuitive, small count and small form factor. And the product needed to be so inexpensive, that techs could conveniently keep small lot counts in their trucks and deploy as service calls were scheduled.”

“We get into a lot of buildings that were built more than 100 years ago, and the communications space inside those buildings is a premium,” said Alan Shaw of Time Warner Cable’s Business Class team, in a statement.

Clearview xPAK is ideal 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.
