What is a Fiber Optic Adapter Panel?
The fiber optic adapter panel (also known as the fiber optic patch panel) is a tool often used in the distribution of fiber optic networks. These panels are commonly installed in rack and wall mount distribution panels in order to manage and organize fiber. As the fiber easily snaps into the panel enclosures, cables may be patched or spliced to create several connection points – this offers a simpler and more compact solution for connectivity.

Fiber optic adapter panels are often deployed with rack mount and wall mount distribution panels. Sealed inside a fiber enclosure, these panels connect to a larger fiber optic network application such as a data center or other high-density fiber optic distribution area.
When using our customized 3D-printed colored adapter panels, you can design the color to match the color of different fiber patch cables. This simple cable management technique provides convenience for distinguishing corresponding cables and is just one of the ways you can design your adapter panels to fit your unique network needs.
