In this Fiber Optics in Focus series, we’re honing in on some of the industry’s most used and well-known fiber optic products Megladon has to offer. To kick this series off, we’re focusing on the LC connector.
The LC connector is the most common fiber optic connector favored by telecom and data centers worldwide. It’s about half the size of other connectors making it ideal for high-density patch panels. Additionally, LC connectors work well with singlemode cables, which transmit higher bandwidth over longer distances.
LC connectors easily disengage from patch panels without using any special tools. Thus, in high-density fiber cabling, LC connectors allow users smooth and easy accessibility in tight areas and will avoid fiber loss from manual operation. Compared to other single fiber connectors, LC connectors offer extreme density while maintaining the same level of optical performance.
An industry leader in fiber optic connectivity, Megladon has deployed millions of fiber assemblies worldwide from our Austin, Tx facility. In addition to fiber optic cables and assemblies, our product catalog includes custom 3D printed parts that are designed to work with nearly all network designs.
