Should I use breakout cables to connect my device?

opticalCON FAQ-1

Using breakout cables to implement end devices as amplifiers, mixing consoles, etc. to existing fiber optic system is a workable solution and common in many applications. Unfortunately besides the benefits, a breakout cable has some disadvantages when it comes to extended lead time on repairs, cost and flexibility. Due to this points we recommend to use an additional 1RU-panel containing an opticalCON chassis to connect the end device with a regular patch cable.
