Fiber connectors are used to terminate the end of an optical fiber and with absolute precision, align microscopic glass fibers perfectly to ensure light can be transmitted from one connector to another.

There are many different types of connectors, with some used far more widely than others. All are united by the fact that they all allow optical fibers to be connected and disconnected from a network quickly and safely. Using connectors also allows you to introduce maintenance, testing, repairs, and the possibility of easily reconfiguring, connecting and disconnecting your network. The purpose of this guide is to help you identify different connectors and adaptors in the field.

Whether you are looking for pre-terminated multi-fiber assemblies, patchcords or pigtails, AFL Hyperscale offer a comprehensive range of connectors and adapter types to fulfil your network needs.
