When a fiber optic cable is capped with connectors at both ends it is referred to as a fiber optic patch cord. The other popular name is “fiber optic jumper.” In technical terms, experts explain that there are two major parts of a fiber optic patch cords — optical connectors and fiber optic cables. Why Fiber Optic Patch Cords Modern Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks require high performance connectivity to transmit data over 100 kilometers. High performance connectivity means high input optical power (i.e. +27 dBm) and low return loss (i.e. ≥55 dB). If the cord connectors are of low…
