SFP, LC and SC Connectors

Glancing at modern network devices, people will see different built-in ports for different connections. For example, we use the USB interface in mobile phones to use RJ45 ports in copper wire switches. However what about SFP port? SFP ports are the built-in interfaces of various devices, including Gigabit switches, SFP switches, and network interface cards (NIC). Today we will talk…

Introduction to ODC Connector

What is ODC Connector? ODC connectors are designed for the fiber to antenna (FTTA) applications. The ODC product range incorporates precision-machined rugged brass housings with two or four optical terminations in both single mode and multimode fibers. The environmentally sealed, fixed and free connectors are supported by a range of highly crush resistant, high tensile strength “tactical” style cables.ODC fiber…

Basic Knowledge of Fiber Connector

Fiber Connectors are generally used where flexibility is needed at termination points when an optical signal is routed. One of the most prominent reasons is that repeated connections are made possible with Fiber Optic Connectors. Examples would include connections from receivers to equipment pigtails or normal termination, or when re-configuring systems. Repeated connections make it easy to meet changing customer requirements…

Decoding Grade A Connector in Fiber Optic Patch Cables

With the advances in fiber optic technology and transmission systems, reliable cabling systems are becoming even more important. Active optical equipment, which is often worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, is all connected into the network via the humble fiber optic patch cord or patch lead. The risk of network downtime due to unreliable cabling is one that should be…

How to convert QSFP to RJ45 for Network Connection

We know that in the present market, there are different types of ports for switches, such as RJ45 port, SFP+ port, QSFP port and etc. Generally speaking, the more ports a switch is equipped with, the more devices the switch can be connected to. Different ports enable switches to other devices via fiber or copper. So what is the difference…

RJ45 connector

A Beginner’s Guide to RJ45 Connector

Generally, cables can transmit information along with their length. To actually get the information where it needs to go, you need to make the right connections to an RJ45 connector. Your cable run needs to terminate into a connector, which needs a jack to plug into. RJ45 is a standard type of physical connector for network cables, which is especially…
