What is a Fiber Optic outlet?

 A fiber optic outlet, also known as a fiber optic wall plate, is one of the critical components in a fiber optic cabling network system. These fiber optic wall plates serve as a primary component in a structured cabling network system. As per network types, a wall plate is categorized into two kinds – fiber optic wall plates and copper wall plates. Generally, fiber optic outlets are installed in-wall. These provide a safer and more accessible connection between the fiber patch cables and the feed cables linked to target devices. Customers should choose a suitable fiber optic outlet to ensure better performance and connection of the fiber optic links.

 How many types of fiber optic outlets are available?

 Read below to learn about the available fiber optic outlets.

 Size and Design

Fiber optic outlets or fiber optic wall plates are available in different sizes. The most widely used fiber optic wall plate is of size 86mm*86mm. In addition, the design of fiber optic outlets is determined by the different applications. The most commonly available designs in fiber optic wall plates are mentioned below:


A straight fiber optic outlet is mainly used in offices and buildings. These outlets offer architectural orientation for in-wall installations.


Box-type fiber optic wall plate is primarily used in FTTH applications as it provides an easy connection environment and a safe place for fiber patch cable storage.


The angled-designed fiber optic outlet offers better performance and decreases bend loss.

 Fixed and Modular Wallplate

Apart from these, you must decide whether you require a fixed-design or modular wall plate.

 Fixed-Design Wall Plate – It comes with multiple jacks which are molded into the wall plate. In other words, the jacket cannot be removed or replaced with a varied connector type. These wall plates are cheap and easy to install, usually used in telephone systems.

 Modular Wall Plate – These fiber optic wall plates comprise multiple jack locations. In some cases, if jackets are not installed, it is known as the faceplate.

 What are adapter types available in a fiber optic wall plate?

 To provide connection and disconnection for fiber optic cables, wall plates use a fiber adapter installed on the plate itself. It helps in establishing a connection. So, carefully select the type of fiber optic adapter from SC, LC, etc.

 Where to use the fiber optic wall plate?

 Fiber optic wall plates or fiber optic outlets have many applications in buildings and offices for different purposes, such as:

  FTTH access

Data Communication Network

Telecommunication etc.

Choosing the right fiber optic outlet among so many types of available options is a challenging task. Therefore, identify the type and design of fiber optic outlet that is suitable for your project. For more information, drop us a question!

 What is fiber optic outlet?

 Fiber optic outlet is to fix the module and protect the cable at the outlet exit, which acts like a screen. Connect with SC flange and fiber quick connector, fiber optic patch cord. The optical fiber outlet is not the main product component that affects the performance of the cabling system, but it is one of the only exposed surface products in the entire cabling system.

 What plug does fiber optic use?

 Home access fiber optic lines generally use SC-type fiber optic connectors

 What are the disadvantages of fiber connectors?

 ST, SC connector are often used in general networks. After the ST head is inserted, it is fixed by a bayonet half-circle, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to break; the SC connector is directly inserted and unplugged, which is very convenient to use, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to fall out, It is reliable and dust-proof. The disadvantage is that the installation time is slightly longer and the clamping and tightening requirements are required.

 How do I connect my fiber optic cable to my router?

 The way to connect the router with optical fiber is to connect any network port of the optical modem to the WLAN port of the wireless router with a network cable. If other computers in the local area network need to access the Internet through a wired connection, you can connect the computer network to the local area network port of the wireless router through a network cable.
