Which is preferable for CATV deployment over GPON and why?
What is difference between LC/APC connector and SC/APC connector? Which is preferable for CATV deployment over GPON and why? Please guide.
Actually depends on the equipment used for CATV
For CATV deployment in GPON we use EDFA
How about in terms of connector loss?
Hi, the difference between LC and SC lies in the size, the handling and the connector history.
To add some information about the difference on APC versus UPC
“LC/APC is better than SC/apc because SC/APC Connector have high loss .5dB rether then LC/APC connector .3 dB”
All depends on the polishing procedure
Supplement on APC and UPC types connectors
LC meet the need for high density connections
One of the difference isthe security of the Fiber patching
“Yes. As friends and I suggested above. The LC connectors are more suitable and needed for High Density frames/connections.”
“Another option for high-density, good performance connection is MU-type connectors. They are available with UPC or APC finish. “
LC type connector is compliant to Telcordia, EIA/TIA and IEC standards
MU connectors originated in Japan
LC is the most widely used SFF connector in the world
Recommend LC’s in the FTTH CO/HeadEnd, like FOT EDFA (above)
“The ceramic ferrules on both connectors are identical and the connection loss for both types”
“I think SC/APC is better its RL is better”
