Fiber Connections offers a wide array of fiber management and distribution hardware to meet every application.



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
