Choosing the right fiber jumpers for your fiber optic network is no simple task. The choice you make can affect a lot of things, like how quickly data is transmitted from point to point. A fiber jumper, also known as a patch cord, is a length of fiber cable that connects end devices or network hardware to a structured cabling system. The cable is terminated with LC, SC, MTRJ, or ST connectors at both ends. They are frequently used in cable television, optical switches, or other telecommunications equipment. Fiber jumpers are considered interconnect-style cabling. Their general characteristics include low insertion loss, high return loss, good repeatability, good interchange, and excellent environmental adaptability. Jumpers come in two configurations: simplex and duplex. The needs of your network will dictate which type you need.
