FTTH SC UPC SC APC Fiber Optic Drop Cable Patchcord

An SC UPC to SC APC FTTH fiber drop cable patch cord is a type of optical fiber cable used in fiber-optic communication systems. The “SC” stands for “Subscriber Connector,” the “UPC” stands for “Ultra Physical Contact,” and the “APC” stands for “Angled Physical Contact.”

This fiber drop cable patch cord is designed for use in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) applications, where fiber-optic cables are run directly to individual homes to provide high-speed internet and other communication services. The cable has a standard SC connector on both ends, making it easy to connect to network equipment and home devices.

One end of the cable has a UPC finish, which provides a smooth, round connector end-face, while the other end has an APC connector, with its angled physical contact, to minimize the amount of light reflected back into the cable. This design helps to reduce back reflection, improve signal integrity, and reduce signal loss, improving overall performance.

The cable itself is made of high-quality optical fiber, providing fast and reliable data transmission over long distances. It is also designed for flexibility and durability, making it ideal for use in environments where space is limited and/or cable movement is necessary.

In summary, the SC UPC to SC APC FTTH fiber drop cable patch cord is a high-performance solution for fiber-to-the-home applications, providing fast and reliable data transmission to individual homes with improved signal integrity and reduced signal loss.

The SC UPC to SC APC FTTH fiber patch cord is a pre-terminated communication cable with SC fiber connectors on both ends. It comes in two variations: a 2.0mm indoor drop cable with fiberglass reinforcement and V-grooves or a 2.5mm outdoor drop cable with steel wire reinforcement and V-grooves. These patch cords are designed to connect fiber-to-the-home distribution boxes to network equipment and offer improved performance and stability compared to using a drop cable with a quick connector.

At Bonelinks, we not only offer pre-terminated SC fiber connectors, but also LC and FC fiber connectors for both white and black fiber optic drop cables. Our patch cords are available in custom lengths up to 150 meters and undergo factory testing to guarantee clean endfaces, insertion loss, and return loss. Each patch cord comes with a test report and is protected during shipping with a circular wrap and stretch film.


  • Precision-Machined Connectors: The SC UPC and SC APC connectors are precision-machined and feature high-quality ceramic ferrules to ensure low insertion loss and high return loss performance.
  • Low Insertion Loss: The SC UPC to SC APC fiber patch cable features a low insertion loss, which is a measure of the amount of light loss that occurs when the optical signal passes through the connector. The low insertion loss ensures high signal quality and reliability.
  • High Return Loss: The patch cord also features a high return loss, which is a measure of the amount of light that is reflected back from the connector. A high return loss ensures that the optical signal is transmitted with minimal loss and distortion.
  • Durable Construction: The SC UPC to SC APC FTTH fiber drop cable features a durable construction that is resistant to high temperatures, humidity, and physical impacts. The cable jacket is made from flame-retardant and low smoke zero halogen (LSZH) material, making it safe for use in residential and commercial buildings.
  • Easy Installation: The SC UPC to SC APC FTTH fiber drop patch cable is designed for easy installation, allowing for quick and simple connectivity between optical network elements.


  • FTTH Networks: The SC UPC to SC APC Fiber Drop Cable is primarily used in FTTH networks to connect the ONT to the OLT. The patch cord provides a high-speed, reliable connection that enables the delivery of high-speed broadband services to homes and businesses.
  • Data Centers: The patch cord is also used in data centers to connect optical transceivers and other optical components. The high quality and reliable performance of the patch cord ensures that data transmission is fast and secure.
  • Telecommunication Networks: The SC UPC to SC APC fiber patch cable is used in telecommunication networks to connect optical network elements, such as optical amplifiers and optical switches. The patch cord provides a high-speed, reliable connection that enables the delivery of high-speed data and voice services.
