Module 1 - Introduction to Cleerline

Over the next several modules, we'll discuss the eight different categories of product offered within the clear line portfolio. It's all too easy for a clear line to be associated with only the fiber itself and the connectors that attached to it. But we go well beyond that. Our product line provides solutions for the entire fiber infrastructure and includes termination and testing tools, cleaning inspection tools, active optical cables, rack and wall mounted enclosures, and their associated adapter modules, media extension devices and patch cables.

Module 2 - Why Fiber?

A basic understanding of why fiber has become so important and what benefits it brings over a twisted pair infrastructure is paramount in your conversations with integrators thinking about adding it to their installations. Until recently, the conversation about fiber tended to fall into the maybe on my next job category. But technology now demands a physical infrastructure that can facilitate its needs.

Module 3 - The Basics of Fiber Optics and the Cleerline Difference

In order to offer support and assistance to dealers wanting to implement fiber into their projects, you need to have a basic understanding of what fiber is, the differences between the two types of fiber and when to recommend using which. These next few minutes we'll discuss the essential terminology you need to know as well as the differences between traditional fiber and clear line SSF™ fiber.

Module 5 - Connectors

To those new to fiber. This section can often be a confusing topic, but rest assured it doesn't need to be. Much like the use of an RJ 45 connector in the IT field or BNC, RCA or RF connectors in audio video. The use of one type of fiber connector over another is determined by the hardware being plugged in.

Module 7 - Active Optical Cables

Active optical cables or AOCs are by no means unique to Cleerline and have been available in one form or another for some time. Due to the nature of their construction, however, AOCs can be susceptible to breaking, and that's where Cleerline's AOCs make a difference. The utilization of safe fiber within our AOC makes them far stronger and more resilient to breakage than other AOCs that are available.
