Whether they are Simplex or Duplex, patchcords are essential links for developing fibre optic networks. Unlike pigtails, FO patchcords present connectors at both ends. Telenco UK provides a wide selection of optical jumpers built with premium fibre optics and highly reliable connectors. Discover our entire patchcord selection and what are the main differences between Simplex and Duplex optical jumpers. Read more…
Telenco UK provides various models of patch cords with different fiber counts, available in various types and lengths to suit your exact network configurations’ needs. Moreover, all fiber optic assemblies included in this catalog are 100% tested and certified as compliant with international standards.
To help you choose the right jumper from our large selection, let us make it simple for you:
Pick simplex fiber optic whenever you work on a one-way data transfer kind of network. Indeed, Simplex is a type of circuit where signal can only flow in one direction. This means that there is one transmitter and one receiver and these ones never switch roles.
However, for applications based on a bi-directional and simultaneous data transfer, duplex fiber optic cables are more suitable. In this case, data flows in both directions. There are two types of Duplex: full duplex and half duplex. In the first scenario, data is transmitted in both directions simultaneously, while in the case of half duplex, transmitters and receivers also can switch roles but signals do not flow simultaneously.
If you are still hesitating between multimode and single mode fiber jumpers, please keep in mind that:
Multimode fiber optic assemblies are preferred for general fiber networks, data communications and local area network (LAN) applications. For example, telecom professionals opt for multimode fiber when adding segments to a network or bringing fiber to the desk.
Single mode fiber is recommended for long-haul network connections typical for long distances of a couple of miles and more. For instance, if you need to create a connection between switching offices then go for single mode type of fiber.
