Multimode Fiber Patch Cable

Multimode fiber patch cable is a kind of fiber patch cable to connect one network device with another. In contrast with single-mode fiber patch cable, it has a larger diametral core of 50μm or 62.5μm and can transmit light waves through multiple paths which decreases the cost and increases the bandwidth. However, this kind of mode will cause more loss while transmitting the light waves due to chromatic dispersion. In this way, multimode fiber patch cable is usually used for short distance transmission. The color of this mode is also unique as orange or grey for distinction.
