Single Mode Vs Multi Mode
As the name implies a single mode fibre optic cable uses one glass fibre strand with a fairly slim core diameter. However you can have several glass fibre strands within a cable jacket to have multiple single mode fibre paths within a cable. As the core diameter is very small (9 microns) internal light reflection is minimised which reduces attenuation allowing for longer transmission distances. Single mode fibre optic cable is typically used for longer transmission distances (over 500 metres) and uses a laser for the light source.Telecommunication companies use single mode fibre for broadband internet transmission to homes and businesses. Single mode fibre can also be used to connect business data networks in large warehouses or multiple sites.
