Backbone: reliable fiber optic connections for essential transmission points

Share this on social media:

Malfunctions or failures in optical backbone networks are the nightmare of any network operator and can result in nerve-wracking and often costly repairs. Insertion loss, return loss and the ability to withstand high power densities are decisive criteria that should be considered when selecting the suitable connector.

Furthermore, the F-3000™ has recently been standardized as an LF3 connector according to IEC, ensuring mechanical compatibility with the LC connector.
