Prairie Grove Telephone Company Taps Clearfield for Arkansas FTTH Deployment

The project originated as a greenfield installation with the construction of new subdivisions in 2007. PGTelco chose Clearfield's FieldSmart Fiber Scalability Center (FSC) in an 864-port cross-connect configuration. Key to the success of the project has been Clearfield's Clearview Cassette, which is the building block upon which all Clearfield fiber management solutions are designed. Because housing developments are built over time, the Clearview Cassette allows PGTelco to add users in 12-port increments, economically adjusting the number of connections as more neighborhoods are completed. PGTelco Outside Plant Manager Shane Bell explains, "This solution allows us to dictate how much feeder and distribution we need for our active fiber deployment and we can scale as we grow. And, since you do not have to purchase a fully-populated unit initially, the pricing is better than competitors."

Cooper Power Systems, a division of Cooper Industries, Ltd. (NYSE: CBE) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with AT&T, to jointly market and sell to utility companies smart grid sensor devices that are certified on AT&T's wireless data network. Utilities can now receive real-time system performance data to efficiently operate their electrical grids, reduce the need for on-site inspections, and identify and solve problems that could cause outages or increase system energy losses.
