The main difference between APC and UPC connectors is at the end face of the connector, where the fiber enters inside the ferrule. APC connectors have fiber and connector that are polished at an angle of eight degrees. UPC connectors are polished without an angle. However, the UPC connectors are not exactly straight, but have a slight curvature for better alignment of the core. Another more obvious difference is the colour. The UPC connectors are blue, and the APC connectors are green.

In July 2015 we founded a subsidiary in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The name of the company is NFOM (Naficon Fiber Optic Manufacturing) LLC. The production in NFOM started in February 2016. In April 2017 NFOM quality management system got ISO 9001 quality certification. The production facilities are in a quite modern industrial building and currently employs about 20 people. NFOM manufactures similar products as we do in Finland using the same materials, production equipment, and quality criteria. The production of pigtails, pigtail bundles, patch cords and pigtail cables for preinstalled panels have been transferred from Nauvo to Dubai. Certain products, like trunk cables for mobile masts, are still made from start to finish in Nauvo. The production of data center products based on MPO connectors is about to start as a new product group for NFOM.
