Mode Conditioning Patch Cord Utilized in 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet Applications

Generally, we use multimode fiber (MMF) patch cables for multimode equipment while single mode fiber (SMF) patch cables for single mode equipment, like MMF patch cord for 1000BASE-SR transceiver and SMF patch cord for 1000BASE-LR transceiver. But there are occasions when we cannot directly plug multimode patch cord into some 1G/10G electronics in 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet Applications. Typical cases are where 1000BASE-LX/LH, 10GBASE-LX4 and 10GBASE-LRM transceivers are used over legacy multimode fib...

What is Armored Fiber Cable?

Constantly troubled by installing inner-duct or conduit to secure your optical fiber link? It is no longer a problem simply by adopting armored fiber cable—with build-in metal armor inside the outer jacket, armored cable provides extra protection for fiber optic cable, without sacrificing flexibility or functionality within fiber networks. Therefore, armored fiber cable is more robust and reliable when encountered with rodent, moisture and other issues that may cause damage. The superior feature...
