Clearfield® SeeChange™ Helps Operators Seal the Deal as Fiber Deployments for FTTx and 5G Networks Ramp

Innovative carrier-grade access terminal is sealed, hardened, and scalable, ideal for any deployment scenario throughout the Outside Plant

MINNEAPOLIS – March 1, 2023 Clearfield, Inc. (NASDAQ:CLFD, news, filings), the leader in community broadband fiber connectivity, today announced SeeChange™ Terminal, a small, carrier-grade plug-and-play access terminal ideal for any fiber network deployment. Purpose-built as an off-the-shelf option for community broadband and 5G network operators looking to overcome industry-wide constraints due to the shortage of skilled technicians, this readily available, plug-and-play terminal is a cost-effective, pre-packaged solution that requires minimal training in any deployment scenario, tested to withstand even the most extreme environments.

“I could author a book on fixed wireless technologies, but I know nothing about fiber. By teaming up with Clearfield and its new SeeChange platform, I can deliver a state-of-the-art fiber-to-the-home network to over 200 homes in Lubbock, TX, using snap together plug and play components with only my two wireless techs,” said Rob Walker, Owner, Telespan. “Anyone wanting an easy-to-understand and easy-to-install fiber network should consider Clearfield fiber solutions.”

SeeChange Hardened Fiber Assemblies are available with either a multi-fiber MPO connector or a single-fiber SC APC connector. An integrated rear shell provides the feature that engages and fully seals a connection to a SeeChange Terminal FlexPort. The connection is ideal for harsh OSP environments and is rated for installations below grade or above grade including aerial installations on strands. It incorporates an MPO input port that allows for four subscriber drop ports as well as an MPL Express Output port that feeds downstream terminals, enabling the operator to push fiber deeper in the neighborhood. The compact size can be deployed in a variety of locations including pedestal, vault or flowerpot, pole mounted or smart pole, or strand mounted options.

“Over the next decade, fiber networks will go further than they have ever gone before, connecting people and places previously unreachable based on economics and technology. Operators need solutions that speed time to market, reduce cost of deployment, and can be deployed without additional training,” said Kevin Morgan, Chief Marketing Officer of Clearfield. “SeeChange ensures that our customers can address these needs quickly and cost-effectively, with a solution that can withstand the harshest environmental challenges.”

SeeChange is part of Clearfield Labor Lite technologies, requiring no tools or special training. Design engineers can leverage SeeChange to deliver fiber services in support of any size fiber-to-the-home (FFTH), fiber-to-the-business (FTTB), or 5G network, with little training needed for installation and service activation. Both connector styles are easily pushed into open terminal ports without any tools, making it a perfect solution for quick installations using entry-level technicians.
