Information about Single mode fiber cable

According to cable mode, patch cables can be divided into multimode and single-mode fiber cables. The word “mode” means the transmitting mode of the fiber optic light in the fiber optic cable core. Of all the differences between single-mode fiber cables and Multimode Fiber Patch Cables are the size of the fiber’s core and the associated attenuation or loss and bandwidth of the fiber.

The single-mode fiber cables are optical fibers with a small core (2-9 microns that supports one mode), which are most commonly used for transmitting data over long distances. They are usually used for connections over large areas, such as college campuses and cable television networks. And they have a higher bandwidth than multimode cables to deliver up to twice the throughput. Most single-mode fiber cables are color-coded yellow.
