Maybe my question is not related to this section,but I could not find accurate section for my question.
In my new project,all connectivity in physical layer are fiber optic.unfortunately I do not have good and compelte understanding on fiber optic.
I need to focus more on these topic:
- SFP and type of SFP
- Gbic and type of Gbic
- fiber optic and type of fiber
-** limitation and probabely issues on these connectors.
Thanks for any guidance and documents on this topic.
nomrally we use below type of fiber optic cables:
also know as MM fiber optic cable
supports less distance (300 to 500 meters)
requires MM sfp with part number GLC-SX-MM
requires MM patch cords
- single mode
also known as SM fiber optic cable
supports longer distance like more then 500 meters
requires SM sfp with part number GLC-LH-SM
requires SM patch cords
