Here, we'll continue our series on the variety of fiber optic cables available on Cables.com for your home or business. If you want to be sure you've got the right cables for the job, you'll have to learn more about the differences between different colored cables and what they might mean for your installation. Cables.com is here to guide you through identifying the best option for you!
Yellow Fiber Optic Cables for Maximum Bandwidth and Distance
It's easy to believe that more = better. For that reason, you might think that it's better to go with multi mode fiber optic cables rather than single mode. But believe it or not, single mode fiber's single transmission mode is capable of carrying higher bandwidth. When it comes to transmission distance, single mode emerges the victor by a long shot - its single glass fiber strand transmit 1 to 10 gigs of data and 1080p resolution up to twice as far as OM1, OM2, OM3, or OM4 fiber optic cables. Though a single mode cable's fiber core is significantly smaller than a multi mode cable core, it packs a real punch.
OS2 Fiber Optic Cables and Accessories
Cables.com offers a variety of cables and accessories for your single mode cable setup.
Starting at the beginning, our Singlemode LC to LC 9/125 Micron fiber optic cables are built to ensure that your network functions reliably. These cables contain ceramic ferrules designed for optimal data transfer and include the highest quality corning glass available, meeting industry standard loss in Insertion and Return, in lengths from 1 meter to 20 meters. You can find these fiber optic cables here at Cables.com for the lowest prices online, delivered with the best service you'll find from any other retailers.
You can also find Singlemode LC to SC cables, as well as LC to ST cables, SC to SC cables, SC to ST cables, and ST to ST UPC Cables. You'll be hard pressed to find this variety in configurations with customizable options
First, let's take a look at our MTP to 4 Duplex LC OS2 Singlemode Breakout cable. Ranging from 1 to 20 meter in length, it features at MTP/APC female plug on one side and 8 LC/UPC Duplex clips on the other with a 40gb pinout.
If it's something special you could use, check out Cables.com's APC Singlemode Fiber Cables. These angled physical contact fiber connectors are unique from our Ultra Physical Contact (UPC) cables. At first glance, you'll notice that the connectors are green rather than blue. Furthermore, while UPC connectors are curved slightly for better core alignment, APC connectors are polished at an 8-degree angle. Though UPC connectors have less return loss than APC, APC connectors are a better fit for more sensitive applications like those in higher optical wavelength ranges. Here on Cables.com you can find SC to SC APC Fiber, LC to LC APC Fiber, and FC to FC APC Fiber in lengths between 1 and 50 meters. We even offer Singlemode 9/125 Colored Cables.
