With the obvious advantages, fiber optic cables have become an essential component in fiber optic communications. Terminated with connectors on ends, these cables (e.g. SC-SC fiber cable) carry the light signals generated by the transmitter to the receiver.
Most fiber optic connectors are known to be pluggable male connectors with a protruding ferrule that holds the fiber optic cables and aligns them for mating. They use a mating adapter to mate the two connector ferrules that fit the securing mechanism of the connectors (bayonet, screw-on or snap-in.).
