MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 14, 2014 — The SmartRoute Panel from Clearfield Inc. integrates intrafacility fiber cable (IFC) and outside plant (OSP) assemblies in a single unit with two spools, connectors and slack storage. Each spool can hold up to 200 feet of 3-mm 12-fiber micro-distribution or 12-fiber FieldShield cable, or up to 125 feet of 4-mm 24-fiber FieldShield cable. Pre-connectorized options eliminate splice labor and speed network construction. The unit is suited for use in offices, data centers and residences. Used with FieldShield optical cable, the panel may be used at cell towers and other places where fiber is exposed to the elements.
