Subscriber connector (SC): This is a kind of box-shaped connectors, snap into receptacle, often used in a duplex configuration when terminating two fibers.
Face contact (FC) : This connector is used for heavy duty ferrule in the center for mechanical stability.
Local connector (LC) : use for both single and multimode fibers.
SMA : sub multi assembly connector : This is a connector use for a place were the environment factors necessitates water proof connectors.
