What is the difference between fiber patch cords and pigtails?

Fiber patch cords are used to make patch cords from equipment to fiber optic cabling links.

There is a thicker protective layer, which is generally used for the connection between the optical transceiver and the terminal box.

Pigtail, also known as pigtail, has only one end with a connector, and the other end is a broken end of a fiber optic cable core, which is connected to other fiber optic cable cores by fusion splicing. (couplers, jumpers, etc. are also used between them).

The optical fiber connector is a device for detachable (active) connection between optical fibers and optical fibers. It precisely butts the two end faces of the optical fibers, so that the light energy output by the transmitting optical fiber can be coupled to the receiving optical fiber to the maximum extent. And minimize the impact on the system due to its involvement in the optical link, which is the basic requirement of fiber optic connectors.

To a certain extent, fiber optic connectors also affect the reliability and performance of optical transmission systems.
