There are many different methods that can be used to install connectors for fiber optics. The methods were developed over time for different reasons, including convenience, reliability, installation c
Remateable connections are made possible by Fiber Connectors. Fiber Connectors are therefore generally used where ﬂexibility is needed at termination points when an optical signal is routed.
Copper based cable connectors typically are connected to the cables using technology that will hold them together: punch-down, or crimping. Optical fiber requires more "gentle" approach for the proper
