Fiber Optic Connectors and Cables

Fiber Optic Interconnect Solutions

Fiber optic interconnect technologies deliver high data rate and high bandwidth performance in land, sea, air, space and C4ISR applications. Precision-engineered fiber optic contacts, or termini, are the key to delivering low data loss and reliable, repeatable performance over long distances in mission-critical applications. But the advantages of a connection system that can transmit the equivalent of 24,000 telephone calls simultaneously through fibers thinner than a human hair – and over longer distances than would ever be possible with copper media – go beyond their mind-boggling data transmission rate.
