What exactly is a fibre patch cable?
Fibre patch cables (also called fibre optic patch cords, patch cables or fibre jumper cables), consist of an optical cable terminated with a connector at each end. The main applications are fibre optic patch panels or optical cross connect. This type of cable is for indoor use only and it is used to connect switches, routers and optical transmission equipment.
Fibre colour codes
Types of fibre optic cables can be identified by the standardized colours on the outer jacket. Please note that the colours below are standard colours used in the EIA/TIA-598 system. This is the most recognized system worldwide and most generally used. But in some cases certain suppliers may use a different system of colours.
|Orange||62.5μm (OM1) or 50μm (OM2) Multi-Mode Fibre|
|Yellow||8-10μm Single-Mode Fibre|
|Aqua||10Gbps+ Laser-Optimized 50μm (OM3) Multi-Mode Fibre|
|Blue||Polarization Maintaining Single-Mode Fibre|
