Home Communications Collaborates with Clearfield for Fiber-to-the-Home Project

A Kansas-based provider of Internet, telephone and TV services, Home Communications has entered a contract with Clearfield, a fiber management company for the deployment of its recently launched FTTH (Fiber to the Home) project across its exchanges in nine cities. Clearfield will aid in the management of over 600 miles of fiber that will serve about 1800 homes.

The Chief Technology Officer at Home Communications, Richard Baldwin stated that the FTTH deployment will provide area residents and businesses with telecommunication advancements such as HD channels through Internet protocol television (IPTV) and high speed Internet. The FieldSmart Fiber Crossover Distribution System (FxDS) panels developed by Clearfield will be used along with Fiber Scalability Center (FSC) PON cabinets in Home Communications’ central office.

The reasons for selecting Clearfield’s services and products were cited by Baldwin as the cost-effectiveness and cleanliness of deployment, the ease of access and customer turn-up efficiency. He stated that when one observes fiber panels not having fiber jumpers it is tough to find out which product is better. After the fiber jumpers are laid, it is easy to find out the areas where manufacturing flaws are present. He added that the fiber management system in the cabinet is quite good since the jumpers are arranged uniformly and conveniently manageable from the first to last.
