Types of Indoor Fiber Optic Patch Cords

Types of Indoor Fiber Optic Patch Cords

The fiber patch cord also called fiber jumper or fiber cable, is a length of optical fiber cable terminated with fiber optic connectors at each end. It can be used to connect different fiber optical interface equipment to achieve high-speed and stable data transmission.

The patch cords can be divided according to the outer jacket material, such as ordinary type,low-smoke halogen flame-retardant type(LSZH),OFNP,Armored type.


Multimode fiber patch cables have a larger core which allows multiple light modes to be transmitted within. This means that they are better suited for networking over shorter distances, such as within a building or campus. They also have lower attenuation rates, and are more immune to noise.

Our black bulk 62.5/125 OM1 fiber optic patch cords have water blocking Aramid yarn and premium ceramic ferrules, which offer superior precision. They have an indoor plenum rated jacket which makes them suitable for use in all indoor environments. The jacket is printed with a color code that indicates fiber and connector type. This helps to reduce confusion and prevent miswiring. These patch cords can be used for extending the range of existing multimode plant, as well as connecting new single mode equipment to existing multimode plants.


Bonelinks offers a complete line of singlemode fiber patch cables featuring premium connector options that deliver indoor-outdoor-fiber-optic-cable-non-armored enhanced performance in a wide range of applications. These high-speed fiber optic cables can support long-distance data transmission over extended distances without loss of fidelity.

A single-mode cable has a narrow core that can carry only one mode of light, which makes it ideal for broadband Internet connectivity. Compared to multimode optical fiber, which can support multiple light propagation modes, single-mode fiber has lower signal loss and wider bandwidth capacity.

Our stock of single-mode fiber patch cords features LC and SC connectors on both ends, making it easy to connect them to compatible equipment. These standardized connectors are designed and polished to minimize back reflection, which can reduce network throughput.


The fiber patch cable, also known as a fiber jumper or optical cable, is a fiber optic cable terminated with fiber optic connectors on both ends. It is designed for indoor applications. There are two major types of fiber patch cables: multimode and single-mode. The differences between these fiber cables are based on the fiber mode, cable structure, connector types, and connector polishing types.

HOLIGHT’s SC to SC multimode duplex patch cords feature SC connectors on both ends and offer high bandwidth and low attenuation. They are ideal for connecting data center equipment and enhancing Gigabit Ethernet speed in the network.

These fiber cables have a 3mm indoor plenum (OFNP) jacket that allows them to be used in all indoor environments. They include premium precision connectors and Corning Infinicore glass.


Fiber Optic Patch Cords are a type of fiber cable with connectors on both ends that connects to devices. They are used to transmit data, video and voice services between locations. They are available in a wide variety of lengths and jacket material options to meet any application need.

The ST connector (abbreviated as Straight Tip) is a bayonet-style plug and socket with a twist-on/twist-off mechanism. It is used on single-mode optical fiber and can be used in both ethernet and telecommunication applications.

The 9/125 OS1 single-mode duplex patch cables use high-quality ST connectors and LSZH jacket. They are individually examined and tested to ensure optimal insertion loss. These cables are suitable for connecting 4G and LTE wireless base stations to FTTA equipment. They also work well in remote radio units (RRUs) on cell towers.


LC fiber optic patch cords feature a small form factor connector that is popular in high-density network environments. These patch cables are available in simplex and duplex configurations. A simplex patch cable has one connector on each end, while a duplex patch cord has two connectors on each end to accommodate data transmission in both directions.

The LC connectors on these patch cables are easy to install and handle, making them a great choice for high-density network applications. They also have automatic shutters that open and close to prevent dust and debris from entering the connectors.

This indoor/outdoor multimode duplex OM2 fiber patch cable features Corning optical fiber and a black OFNR riser rated PVC jacket. The cable has ceramic ferrule SC connectors on each end, and each connector is color coded for identification. The cable is sturdily constructed and thoroughly tested to ensure that it meets industry performance standards. Test results are included with each cable.


MPO fiber patch cords feature push-pull tab connectors that make it easier to make connections in high-density data center environments. They also provide 24 times the density of traditional LC connections and reduce circuit card and rack space requirements.

To connect MPO patch cables, you must first understand the polarity of the connector. Each connector has a key that can be positioned in one of two positions: “key up” and “key down.” Once the key is plugged in, the PIN pins on the connector will align correctly with those on the adapter.

MPO trunk cable is a multi-fiber cable with an MTP(r) connector on both ends. It is commonly used for 40G and 100G applications in data centers, central offices, and other high-density wiring environments. It can support both single-mode and multi-mode wavelengths.


Uniboot fiber patch cords streamline the installation process and improve cable management. optical-loopback-cables-module These cables combine the transmit and receive fibers in a single connector. The technology can also reduce tangled and messy cabling infrastructures in data centers.

The reversible polarity mechanism in uniboot patch cords allows users to switch the polarity of the connector by simply manipulating the reversible tabs. The reversal is tool-less, and it includes a 180-degree safety limit to prevent damage to the optical fibers.

LC Uniboot fiber patch cords are perfect for high-density applications because they occupy less space than standard cables and allow for tighter cable bends. They offer high durability, low insertion loss, and excellent back reflection. They are available in LSZH, riser, and plenum rated versions for a variety of environments.
