Fiber optic pigtail is a fiber optic cable terminated with fiber optic connectors at only one side of the cable, while leaving the other side no connectors, so that the connector side can be linked to the equipment and the other side can be melted with optical fiber cables. Fiber optic pigtails are utilized in terminating fiber optic cables via fusion or mechanical splicing.They are usually used with fiber optic management equipment like ODF, fiber terminal box and distribution box, etc.
