OP(SCAPC)-SCAPC G657A2 SX 4.5×9.8mm FTTH Flat Drop cable Patch cord

Share to:


It’s a kind of FTTH patch cord assembly with 4.5*9.8mm Flat FTTH Drop Cable.It adopts lower insertion loss SC technologies, and compact cable structure, achieving fast deployment, high reliability, and durability.

This is a last cable in FTTH project. Used widely between MST,FAT, FTTX Pro-connectorized terminal box tec. With easy accessibility to the fiber and simple installation.



  • Fast deployment, plug and play.
  • Double locked anti-vibration design.
  • Easy to install and uninstall.
