Due to the high variability of MDU architectures,
Extensive engineering has been required to ensure proper cable lengths for Fiber-to-the-Premise deployments
The 4.5” (114.30 mm) FieldShield FLEXdrop Deploy Reel minimizes pre-engineering because it allows FLEXdrop to be pulled from the reel directly to the access point. Once the pushable connector has reached its destination, the connector assembly is completed with the supplied connector housings and the connector is mated to the adapter. The remaining slack on the reel is pre-stored with no further slack management required. The terminated end on the reel is pre-tested, cleaned and mated in a Clearfield® factory environment, leaving the technician to simply mate the patch cord to the adapter on the reel. The small form factor of the cable assembly and Deploy Reel allows the FLEXdrop to be pulled and slack stored from the customer demarcation point. As an ISP Cable, FLEXdrop reduces pre-engineering and onsite installation time for MDU and riser deployments.
