Fiber Connections’ GatorPatch™ is a factory terminated patch panel that is compact, durable and secure. Its simple plug in and play design eliminates the need for site terminations - resulting in fast, cost effective installations. The rugged, modular design of the GatorPatch is especially suitable for ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) and DOT applications. Use GatorPatch for your initial fiber installation or for emergency network repairs, additions or changes.

GatorPatch is available with any multimode or single mode fiber and with ST, SC or LC connectors. The tail end of the assembly can be pre-terminated with an MTP® connector/adapter combination for fast and reliable connectivity, or it can be left as a pigtail and ready to splice into your existing fiber plant. The GatorPatch™ easily mounts on a variety of hardware devices such as wall mount boxes, outdoor enclosures and power poles. Its rugged modular construction allows for reconfigurations, additions, moves, and changes to be completed with greater ease and in less time than traditional, rack or wall mounted enclosures.       

The GatorPatch is available with up to 12 fibers in our 'skinny' form or with 24 fibers in a 'wide body' housing. This field termination solution can save hours of installation time and provides the reliable performance that is guaranteed with a factory terminated and tested product.             


  • Fast, Easy Installation – minimizes installation costs
  • Pre-terminated and tested eliminates on site termination and testing
  • Rugged Construction mounts almost anywhere
  • Durable and Secure
  • Epoxy filled for ultimate rodent protection
  • ROHS compliant

"The Gatorpatches are better than sliced bread. I plan on using them for the rest of our fiber projects." J. R., Traffic Supervisor, Lawrence KS    

"We have 30 GatorPatches in Tempe and about 165 on the Light Rail Project. There have been no failures..." Jim, City of Tempe, AZ

After repeated requests to develop a GatorPatch with IP67 rated connectors, we have just introduced this newest version. After 2 successful Beta trials, this harsh environment solution is now available. The Industrial GatorPatch uses an industry standard IP67 rated MPO connector to bring 12 fibers in and ODVA LC connectors to distribute 6 pairs of fibers. An optional cover is available for added protection.

See our data sheet for more information on the industrial version. Call us to discuss your harsh environment application.

Zone Distribution Box

An integral part of our PoE extension options, the zone box provides for mid-span fiber management and PoE injection. The Zone Box can be configured with a variety of options including with a power supply, media converter modules and fiber patch panels. The Zone box can be powered locally or remotely, depending on your network requirements and access to power outlets.

The Zone Box is added to a Chameleon system configuration when there is a need to extend network distances with fiber backbone cables or when fiber needs to be distributed to a larger number of remote locations. It is also used as a mid-span PoE injector, allowing PoE to be taken to GatorLink units that are up to 300 meters from the Zone Box.
