Optical Fibre Patchcords
Fiber optic patch cords are one of most commonly used components in fiber optic networks. Fiber optic
patch cords are sometimes called fiber optic jumper or fiber optic patch cables. Generally, there are two
types of fiber optic patch cords: single mode fiber optic patch cords and multimode fiber optic patch
cords. Here the word mode means the transmitting mode of the fiber optic light in the fiber optic cable
core. Usually single mode fiber optic patch cords are manufactured with 9/125 fiber glass and have a
yellow jacket , multi mode fiber optic patch cords are manufactured with 50/125 or 62.5/125 fiber glass
and have an orange jacket.
