Single-mode patch cables are used in long distance fibre application. Today most long distance telephone lines are in single-mode fibre as this fibre is designed for the highest bandwidth and very long distances. The single-mode core is only 9 µm and therefore it is of the utmost importance that its centre is very well aligned in order to guarantee a quality connectivity.
The most important technical element in a single-mode patch cable is the Return Loss. A minimum of -50dB or a -60dB for APC finish is required.
A -50dB return loss implies that only 0.001% of the light is reflected backwards. All our single mode patch cables below meet or exceed this minimum.
