With proven field-installable connector technology, fiber terminations using the OptiSnap® Connector system are fast, easy and reliable. The Corning Cable Systems high-precision mechanical splice technology enables fiber optic networks to be installed quickly and cost effectively.
The Corning Cable Systems go/no-go feedback signal allows the installer to verify that the installation is performed right, the first time, every time. Insert the fiber, activate the cam and watch the pass/fail light illuminate, instilling confidence in every connector installed.

The factory-polished ceramic ferrule provides superior quality for end-face geometry. The single-mode OptiSnap® Connector is available in an ultra physical contact (UPC) polish or an angled physical contact (APC) polish (SC only), offering you a higher grade of performance for your field terminations. With fast installation time and low insertion loss, the OptiSnap Connector system provides a good alternative to fusion splicing. Installation is as easy as strip, clean, cleave, cam and crimp.
