Fiber Optic Patch Cable Types
There are two prominent fiber patch cables available in today's market – single-mode and multimode. Each of these fiber optic patch cable types offers its own advantages based on what a business needs them for.
Single-Mode Fiber Patch Cable
Single-mode fiber patch cable only allows one mode of light to pass through its thin diameter, allowing it to carry signals at much faster speeds with a low degree of attenuation. This makes single-mode fiber patch cable best suited for long-distance, high-capacity voice applications such as telephone transmission or long-distance networking. Single-mode cables typically use 9/125 micron glass fiber with your choice of connectors at both ends.
Multimode Fiber Patch Cable
Multimode fiber patch cable comes with a larger core which enables multiple light modes to be transmitted within. These fiber optic patch cords are best used over shorter distances because of the multiple modes of light transmitted. Multimode fiber patch cables are best suited for networking within a building or campus for local or wide area networks such as data centers and colleges. Multimode fiber patch cable uses 50/125µm micron glass fiber with various connector types at both ends.
