. (NASDAQ:CLFD), the specialist in fiber management for
communication service providers, today announced general availability of
the FieldSmart® Fiber Distribution Hub (FDH) 864-port PON cabinet, the
latest addition to Clearfield's award-winning portfolio of passive and
active cabinets. With the announcement of the FieldSmart FDH 864-port
PON cabinet, Clearfield now has the most complete cabinet portfolio
meeting all density, application, flexibility, and scalability needs.
The FieldSmart FDH is designed to support fiber network integrity,
secure fiber assets, provide unmatched fiber access and protect fiber
investment. Utilizing the 12-port Clearview® Cassette, the FieldSmart
FDH provides multiple cabinet configurations allowing service providers
to align the investment in capital equipment to the turn-up of
revenue-generating circuits.

"Clearfield's FieldSmart Fiber Distribution Hub leverages a Clearview
Cassette enabled design methodology that is critical to the emerging
trends in the marketplace of designing a single fiber network for all
applications," said Kevin Morgan, Clearfield's chief marketing officer.
"Designed to help our customers expand their Fiber to the X deployments
for business class, home and edge networks as broadly and cost
effectively as possible, this new higher-capacity cabinet complements
our existing line of FieldSmart products in a modular shell design."

The FieldSmart FDH 864-port PON cabinet is the complete solution for
managing up to 864 distribution fibers for an outside plant FTTX PON
application. Extending Clearfield's building block design concepts, the
FieldSmart FDH 864-port cabinet incorporates the ability to provide a
user-defined feeder/fiber ratio – which allows business class, home and
edge networks to be housed in a single cabinet. The cabinet includes a
new roof design for improved water-shed, improved solar shielding, and
improved breathability for added protection of deployed fiber. Mounting
options include pad or vault mounted with either a 4" or 12" riser.

Available for shipping in September 2018, the FieldSmart FDH 864-port
cabinet is designed to Telcordia GR-20, GR-487 and GR-3125. Details on
