Fiber Cords

A fiber jumper, sometimes called a fiber
patch cord is a length of fiber cabling fitted
with LC, SC, MTRJ or ST connectors at each
end. The LC, a smaller form factor
connector, is most commonly used. Fiber
jumpers also come in hybrid varieties with
one type of connector on one end and
another type of connector on the other.
Jumpers are used in the same manner as
patch cords, to connect end devices or
network hardware to the structured cabling
Fiber patch cords come in either single
mode or multimode and should be selected
to match the structured cabling system. The
only exception to this is mode conditioning
patch cords (also known as mode
conditioning fiber jumpers) that are required
when transmitting gigabit signals over
200m on 62.5 micron multimode fiber.

When a fiber channel is tested, it is called a
channel test if patch cords are included, but
a permanent link test otherwise.
