Interconnection cable lc-lc in the data center

The lc-lc connection cable has already become the main force of the high-density wiring network infrastructure. Increase the benefits of lc-lc fiber connection cable , Fabrica has invented lc-lc patch cables with various functions to solve various data center requirements and to improve network performance.

What type of fiber connection cable is required in the data center?

The data center is the place where Fiber Optic Link is located. The choice of fiber optical patch cord manufacturer will directly affect network performance. More and more data centers are choosing high-performance fiber optic cables. Generally, the insertion loss and return loss of the finished connectors in the connection cable and the loss of light from the fiber optic used for the fiber patch cable are three more basic factors for the selection of fiber patch cable .to meet the requirements of high density and convenient data center management, optimization of fiber optic bridge has not stopped. The following introduces several popular lc-lc fiber connection cablesWhich represent the fiber cable trends that the data center is asking for.

Low insertion loss and loss of curvature lc-lc patch cable

When a fiber patch cable length is networked, the optical loss occurs in the fiber and the connector ends in it. There are different optical light losses, among which the loss of insertion in the connectors and the loss of curvature in fiber optic cables are the two most commonly the light losses that the technicians are trying to overcome. Fabrica provides lc-lc fiber patch cables that can reduce these losses to the maximum.

Insertion loss is the loss of fiber when an optical fiber element is inserted into another fiber to form a fiber optic link. To provide patch cable with low insertion loss, the lc connectors terminated in the connection cable have been optimized. The standard lc-lc connection cable usually has an insertion loss of less than 0.3 db. However, for the updated lc-lc revision cable, the insertion loss is usually less than 0.2 db. To decrease the loss of curvature, a fiber type insensitive to curvature (bif) has been used in the fiber patch cable. With optimized lc connectors and fiber insensitive to curvature, the fiber optic cable can provide lc-lc low optical loss in network transmission.

High density connection cable lc-lc

The lc connector was invented to improve the density of wiring. The standard duplex fiber lc-lc cable can provide a higher density of wiring than other fiber optic duplex cables. To further increase the density of wiring in the data center, the connectors and the diameter of the connection cable lc-lc are getting smaller and smaller. Uniboot lc-lc patch cable is a classic case. This type of fiber connection cable designed the two fibers of the duplex connection cable in a single cable. In the addition of the two terminated connectors on each end of the duplex connection cable share the same boot. With fewer cables, the Uniboot connection cable can provide higher cabling density and a better cooling environment in the data center.

Switchable Polarity lc-lc patch cable

The development of the optical patch cord will not stop at low loss and high density. Making the fiber patch cable easier to use is also important. The polarity of the fiber connection cable matters a lot during the installation of the fiber connection cable, especially for the duplex fiber connection cable and the mtp connection cable. It is common to change the polarity of a duplex connection cable during deployment. Technicians may need tools to change the polarity of the connection cable. However, a polarity Cable lc-lc switchable It can make things easier. Without any tool you can reverse polarity could be very easy. The following image shows the inversion of the polarity of a specially designed lc-lc connection cable.


Lc-lc has been designed in many different types. A high-performance fiber patch cable should not only provide low insertion loss and bending loss, but also greater wiring density and easy-to-use features. This is also the trend of data center development.
