What are Patch cords and its uses?

Patch cord cable is also known as a patch cabling or patch lead. It is used to link devices like patch panel, switch, and many more for signal routing.

Typically, patch wires are made in many different colors to be distinguished easily and are made short, maybe no more than ten meters.

Patch cords can be made using a range of types of cables: coaxial, UTP, STP, and fiber patch cable.

Alternatively, pigtails refer to a cable assembly that is terminated with exposed bare wires at only one end. This allows the installer to configure in-field termination for direct and permanent contact.

  • Fiber Optic Patch Cord

A fiber optic patch cable, or “jumper cable,” is a cable assembly terminated at each end by a fiber optic cable. The pre-terminated connectors allow it to be connected to an optical switch, CATV, or other telecommunications equipment conveniently. This cable connects a box of optical transmitters, receivers, and terminals. Such systems may use cable types for single-mode or multimode fiber patch, and a variety of fiber optic connectors.

  • Fiber Optic Pigtail

A fiber optic pigtail is a single, short, typically tight-buffered optical fiber that has a pre-installed optical connector on one end and an exposed fiber length on the other. The pigtail end is stripped and spliced to a single thread of a multi-fiber trunk.

Pigtail splicing to each fiber in the chest “breaks out” the multi-fiber cable into its component fibers for attachment to the end equipment. Pigtail connectors may be female or male.

Female connectors may be installed in a patch frame, often in pairs, although there are single fiber solutions, allowing them to connect to endpoints or other fiber runs with patch fibers. Alternatively, they can have male connectors and plug-in an optical transceiver directly.

What are the advantages of fiber patch cord?

patch cord cable

  • Bandwidth- Fiber optic cables have a bandwidth much higher than metal cables. Its most significant benefit is the amount of information that can be transmitted per unit fiber time over other transmission devices.
  • Low Power Loss- The optical fiber offers low power loss, which allows longer transmission distances. Similar to copper, the longest suggested copper gap in a network is 100 m, whereas it is 2 km for fiber.
  • Interference- Fiber optic cables are resistant to attack by electromagnetics. These cables can also run without fear in electrically noisy conditions because electrical noise does not impact fiber.
  • Size- Compared to copper, a fiber optic cable has about 4.5 times the power of the wire cable, and a sectional cross-sectional area 30 times less.
  • Weight- Fiber optic cables are much lighter than metal wires and much thinner. They also take up less space with cables with the same capacity for information. The lighter weight makes mounting fiber simpler.
  • Security- Optic fibers are hard to pick. Emissions cannot be detected because they do not radiate electromagnetic radiation. As it takes great skill to do undetected physical tapping of the fiber, fiber is the most secure medium available to carry sensitive data.
  • Flexibility- The optical fiber has a higher tensile strength than the same diameter copper or steel fibers. It is versatile, easily bends, and withstands most corrosive elements that strike copper wire.
  • Cost- Unlike copper, the raw materials for glass are abundant. Meaning that lens is more comfortable with producing than copper.

What is SC patch cord?

SC stands for Connector Subscriber or Standard Connector or Square Connector. It’s highly popular in the fiber optic industry for datacom and telecom. It features a mechanism for push-pull snap coupling and a ferrule with a diameter of 2,5 mm. NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation) developed it and is available in both simplex and duplex configurations. They are easy to use and affordable.

What is LC patch cord?

LC stands for Lucent Connector and was developed in the 1990s by Lucent Technologies. LC connector is a compact form-factor fiber optic connector, and because of its smaller size has been designed to replace SC connector. LC uses a ferrule of 1.25 mm in diameter, which is mostly used on small pluggable form factor (SFP) transceivers.

Push and latching scheme is the feature of the LC connector, and it is popular in single-mode applications

What is Patch Cord Cat6?

Standardized twisted pair cable defines the performance of up to 250 MHz for Ethernet operation and its standard.

Six patch cables usually terminate in interchangeable 8P8C connectors. If Cat 6 quality patch cables, jacks, and connectors are not used with Cat 6 wiring, overall performance is compromised, and the performance requirements of Cat 6 cannot be obtained.

What is the difference between an Ethernet Cable and Patch Cable?

There are several types of Ethernet cable. That is the essential distinction between Ethernet and patch cables. In that case, understanding their styles and implementations is the secret to contrasting them when it comes to Ethernet cable vs. patch cable.

In most instances, in copper networks, the Ethernet cable and patch cable are the same ones. But the latter is typically shorter, from your patch panel to your turn, to “clean.”

There is a need to use 100 feet patch cord Cat 6 for home network wiring, for example. The 100 feet patch cord cat6 can then be used as an Ethernet cable in this case.

What are fiber patch cord connector types?

There are about 100 fiber optic patch cord connectors in total on the present fiber connector market. And the most widely used types of fiber connectors include the connector LC, SC, MU, ST, FC, MTRJ, NID, E2000 and MTP / MPO.

However, they do have the same purpose and similar basic components — ferrule, connector core, and coupling unit, no matter what the fiber connector types are.

These fiber connectors are commonly used to end optical fibers such as fiber optic pigtails.

What are the types of fiber optic patch cables?

A fiber patch cord consists of 2 main parts: an optical connector and a fiber optic cable.

Optical Connector:

  • LC fiber optic patch cable
  • FC fiber optic patch cable
  • SC fiber optic patch cable
  • ST fiber optic patch cable
  • MU fiber optic patch cable
  • E2000 fiber optic patch cables
  • MPO fiber optic patch cords
  • ESCON fiber optic patch cords

What are the common optical cable connectors?

  1. LC Fiber ConnectorFor today’s optical communications applications, the LC fiber optic connector has become the standard fiber connector, for connections with SFP and SFP+ fiber transceivers.

As one standard SFF connector (small form factor), LC fiber connector has a 1.25 mm ferrule, which makes it perfect for high-density cabling. The LC connector can be divided into duplex LC and simplex connector.

  1. SC Fiber Connectorunlike LC connectors, SC fiber connectors use a 2.5 mm round ferrule to carry a single-mode fiber (SMF) connector. And it has a connector body “square-shaped” which is the root of the name “square connector.”

Because of its excellent performance, the fiber optic SC connector remains the second most frequent connector for applications that retain polarization.

  1. ST Fiber ConnectorUsually, the ST fiber connector is used in both long and short distance applications such as universities, constructing multimode fiber systems, corporate network environments, and military applications.

ST fiber connector

  1. FC Fiber Connector – The FC fiber connector was the first fiber optic connector to use a ceramic ferrule but, unlike the plastic-bodied SC and LC connector, it uses a nickel-plated or stainless steel round screw-type mounting.

The FC connector end face relies on an alignment key for proper installation, and Tis then tightened into the adaptor/jack.

FC fiber connector

  1. MPO / MTP Fiber Connector – MPO / MTP fiber connector is a multi-fiber connector that blends fibers in a single rectangular ferrule from 12 to 24 strands.

It is used in parallel optical 40 G and 100 G links. MPO / MTP fiber connectors are more complicated compared to other fiber connectors listed above since there are MPO / MTP connectors for key-up and key-down, both male and female.

What are Fiber Optic Patch Cables?

The single-mode optic fiber patch cable is usually in yellow and used for long-distance transmission.

Multimode or Duplex fiber patch cable is usually orange or gray and used for transmission of short distances.

Simplex relation means it sends signals in one direction. For example, a signal is transmitted from device A to device B through two simplex connectors and a simple fiber cable.

The transmission of the revision can be accomplished by duplex connectors and duplex fiber cable, which is called a duplex link.

However, simplex fiber connectors are often attached to one glass or plastic fiber strand, while duplex fiber connectors need to link with two fiber strands. The picture below shows a contrast between the LC duplex connector and SC duplex connector.

What are the difference between SC-SC and SC-LC patch cords?

  1. SC has a more significant connector housing and a larger ferrule of 2.5 mm.
  2. LC has a narrower connector housing and a narrower ferrule of 1.25 mm.
  3. SC used to be all that frustration, but it is LC now. You can fit more interfaces with LC connectors on line-cards, tables, etc.

Why is Fiber optic cables better than copper?

Is there a major difference between the amount of bandwidth that Internet fiber provides and the high-speed Internet copper? Must you base your Internet business decision on just bandwidth?

There’s no doubt when you’re designing a network that needs long distances, high speeds, and substantial bandwidth connections: fiber optic cables win the day.

5 Reasons why fiber is better than copper:

  • Faster fiber optic transmission
  • Fiber optic can cover greater distances
  • Save energy and boost cable handling
  • Reliability
  • Cost
  • Security


Patch cord cables can be classified into performance classes depending on their category. But not all of them are suitable for all areas of application.

If you’re sitting at home, at work or in a coffee shop, without the use of Ethernet cables, Internet access will not be possible.

Even if you are on Wi-Fi, Ethernet itself is used by the device which transmits the wireless signal. But not all Ethernet connections have equal ratings.

We hope you learned a lot!
