Fiber optic patch cable also called fiber optic patch cord or fiber jumper cable, it is concluded with fiber optic connectors on both ends. This is typically for indoor applications. Cables are used for computer workstation to outlet and fiber optic patch panels or optical cross connect distribution point. The types or kinds of fiber optic patch cables can be determined by various fiber cable mode, cable structure, connector types, connector polishing types and cable sizes. In the mode section comes single mode fiber patch cables applies 9/125 micron. While multimode fiber patch cables use 62.5/125 micron or 50/125 micron. 10gig multimode aqua fiber optic patch cables are specifically made up of 50/125 micron fiber optimized for 850nm VCSEL laser based 10Gig Ethernet. It provides three times the bandwidth compared to the 62.5 micron multimode fibers. It increases durability and accuracy. Fiber optic adapters as the name suggest is specially designed to connect two fiber optic cables together. The adapters come in different types such as single fibers together (simplex), two fibers together (duplex), or sometimes four fibers together (quad) to connect. It is an ideal product for applications that needs cable-to-cable connections. Fiber optic adapters are characteristically connecting cables with similar connectors (SC to SC, LC to LC, etc.). Few adapters are hybrid that connect different types of connectors (ST to SC, LC to SC, etc.). When the connectors have differing ferrule sizes (1.25mm to 2.5mm), as found in LC to SC adapters. Due to the complex design and manufacturing intricacies, the expense goes high, and it effects the cost of these adapters which are relatively on higher side.
