Fiber Optic Connectors
Fiber optic cables can be terminated in two ways which are by joining the optical fibers with the fiber optic connectors or splicing the optical fibers together. The fiber optic connectors provide ease of connecting and aligning of the optical fibers so that the optical light signals that can be transmitted without many interferences.

Fiber Optic Pigtail
Fiber optic pigtail consists of a single tight-buffered fiber optic cable that is pre-terminated with a fiber optic connector at one end while the other end of the cable will be used to splice with the optical fibers of the fiber optic cables. The fiber optic pigtails are available with various kinds of fiber optic connectors and the most common types are FC, LC, SC and ST.
Fiber Optic Patch Cords
Fiber optic patch cords consist of fiber optic patch cables that are pre-terminated with fiber optic connectors on both ends of the cables. They provide ease of connecting fiber optic patch panel to the fiber optic device and vice versa. Many variations of the fiber optic patch cords are available supporting different kinds of networking requirements.
Fiber Optic Attenuators
Sometimes, the optical signals may be too strong for a fiber optic receiver to accept in fiber optic network transmission and this will cause damage to the receiving device. The fiber optic attenuator can be utilized in this situation by reducing the transmission signal power level to a certain level.
Direct Termination Kits
Direct termination kits are used to house the bare optical fibers after they are being exposed from their fiber optic cables. The direct termination kits also provide protection to the optical fibers for termination with the fiber optic connectors.
