Cables.com carries the fiber optic accessories like connectorsenclosures and the tools you'll need to put it all together. While many projects involving fiber optic cables require custom installation, we carry the bulk fiber optic cable necessary for contractors, I.T. teams, or DIYers looking to get the job done.

Why Choose Fiber Optic Cable?

The best network cable for you will depend on the extent of your data network connection, as well as what you want from it. Though Category 6 ethernet remain the industry standard for data networks, fiber optic connections are on the rise. While a broadband wifi network operates by transmitting data packets into electromagnetic waves, a fiber optic connection relies on pulses of light traveling along delicate, hair-fine glass "fiber" cables. You can expect speeds between approximately 3 to 1000 Mbps from network patch cables, but fiber optic internet will blow those speeds out of the water: with a fiber optic connection, you can expect data transfers at a rate of up to 100 Gbps.

LC, SC & ST Connectors 

In addition to our extensive stock of both single mode and multi mode fiber optic cables, Cables.com carries all the fiber optic connectors, enclosures and other accessories necessary to make your custom configuration and installations possible.

In terms of fiber optic connectors, LCs or lucent connectors, are probably the most commonly used. Our Corning UniCam Pretium LC Connector features UniCam Pretium-Performance Connectors. 

That said,  SCs, or standard connectors, retain a significant place in the market. You can find that our Corning UniCam Pretium SC Connect is priced competitively, with guaranteed quick shipping. We also carry STs. or straight tip connectors, which may become important for installers working education and military contracts. 

Fiber Optic Enclosures and Tools for your Fiber Optic Connection

You need more than just cables and connectors for a functioning data network connection, and Cables.com is your source for all things fiber to complete your next generation network.

An equally important component when installing fiber optic cables is, of course, the fiber optic enclosure. Different types of fiber optic enclosures may be permanently mounted to walls or designed to be portable for audio and video applications such as sound and tech for musicians. Fiber optic enclosures serve a number of different purposes, chief among them protecting the delicate individual glass fiber strands that must be exposed in order to splice fiber optic cables together. Fiber optic enclosures will usually also include some form of excess cable management, useful for when repairs are needed, or if a mounted enclosure needs to be relocated and transported elsewhere. Our selection here at Cables.com features essential elements like fiber optic slide trays, like this model, which holds three standard LGX Adapter panels and terminates up to 36 LC Duplex Connections.

Our Fiber Optic Field Installable Connector Prep and Test Kit can help you determine the quality of your connection. We also  carry fiber optic transceivers designed to transmit and receive optical data over multimode optical fiber, as well as fiber optic mode conditioning cables for a variety of cable configurations. And if you need Datacomm fiber optic couplers or loopback adapters, we have you covered!
