Fiber Optic Cable, LC/SC, Single Mode, Duplex - 1 meter (9/125 Type) - Yellow
Because of its immunity to electronic interference and its greater speeds over longer distances, fiber optic cabling has become the conduit of choice for high speed network communications. Monoprice is proud to offer a full line of high-quality Single-mode and Multi-mode duplex cables using optical fibers made by Corning.
This is a "Yellow" single-mode cable with a 9 μm core and 125 μm cladding diameter. The cable has a color-coded Dual LC connector on one end and a Dual SC connector on the other end.
The cable jacket is OFNR (Optical Fiber, Non-conductive, Riser) rated by UL, which means that it complies with fire safety and insurance requirements and is safe for use within the walls, and between the floors, of commercial class buildings.
PROS: Fiber Cables work great just what we needed
PROS: Cheap, works, easy to separate the dual ends
CONS: Color coding.
So finally realizing that I noticed that you can remove the piece of plastic holding the two individual SC connectors and then switch them around. I did that on one end of the connection and everthing worked perfectly at that point.
Also useful to know that the two halves can be split apart if your device or jack do not have the two SC connectors at the exact distance of the duplex configuration would give you. You can split them out and plug each in individually.
PROS: Professional quality, Dow Corning fiber, end caps on the fiber strands, works every time
CONS: Other than the fact I cannot order a 2m cable, none.
PROS: Works perfectly as expected. It is Corning quality core and the connectors were properly covered and protected. Each patch cable was shipped in a separate bag. I would definately recommend at this price for the quality of the cables we recieved.
CONS: Very minor, some of the twist ties were a little tight on the cable.
Dissapointing that Monoprice does not sell a 2m cable, only 1 & 3m
