In this Fiber Optics in Focus video 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.
In continuation of this series, we’re taking a quick look at considerably the most talked about fiber optic connector types MTP®/MPO connectors.
MTP®/MPO connectors are intended for high-density network application and compared to standard cables, can support 12 times the amount of fibers in one end face. These connector types are considered by industry leaders to serve as backbones to many broadband and CATV networks, data communications, and other high-bandwidth equipment given their extremely dense and versatile nature.
An industry leader in fiber optic connectivity, Megladon has deployed millions of fiber assemblies worldwide from our Austin, Texas 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.
