SC - UPC - Duplex
Referred to as the "square connector", the SC has a push-pull coupling lock with a spring loaded ferrule. It was standardized into the telecom specs TIA-568-A and slowly grew in popularity because of its excellent performance. It is commonly used datacom/telecom point to point communication.
This is also classified by its "ferrule polish" as an Ultra Physical Contact (UPC) Connector. This is regarding the connection point/shape of the ferrule tip. The tip is convex and an extended polishing method before attachment. The ends butt up against one another on a perpendicular plane. The main issue with the design is the tendency for back reflection with poor cleaving and repeat matings.
OS 2 Single Mode Fiber
The second designation for single mode fiber, which is only compliant with ITU-T G.652C/D. OS2 is constructed with loose tube design, commonly usd in street, underground burial, outdoor applications, etc. The maximum attenuation is 0.4db/km and maximum speed is 10Gb. Due to the fact OM2 can transmit farther than OM1(10, it is generally more expensive than OM1.
Ultra Physical Contact Connector (UPC)
The Ultra Physical Contact (UPC) Connector is a connection tip design for the Ferrule of the connector. The tip narrows, utilizing an extended polishing method which creates a finer fiber surface finish than Flat Connectors (not narrowed tip). This effectively provides a more reliable signal for digital TV and systems, where the UPC connector currently dominates the market. The design is said to have diminishing results after repeat mating and unmating of the ferrule tip. This repeat usage will increase the back reflection, lowering the quality of signal.
