Clearfield FieldSmart Makwa Fiber Distribution Hub

Clearfield FieldSmart Makwa FDH

Like the bear for which it is named, the FieldSmart Makwa FDH can go below grade, stand up at ground level or climb a pole. And unlike most bears, Makwa is half the size of a conventional FDH.

The FieldSmart Makwa FDH is environmentally protected, versatile, scalable, damage resistant, easily accessible and cost effective, allowing the broadband service provider the choice of where to deploy without sacrificing performance or access.

Built from the ground up and inside a sealed closure, Clearfield has developed the smallest 288 port PON or 432 port Cross-Connect FDH in the industry. Enclosed in a black impact and UV resistant Thermoplastic material, the product will withstand all OSP environments, above or below grade. With a removable top cover, all of the fibers are protected and fully accessible for service changes and maintenance.

FieldSmart Makwa can be placed in any below grade environment including the boulevard or area between the curb and sidewalk. As this space is typically owned by the municipality, only a single permit is required expediting the pre-construction engineering process.
