Singlemode and Multimode are the cable optic we see all the time in cabling. Today we will take a brief look at the differences between these two types of cables.
|Point of difference||Single Mode||Multimode|
|Optical transmission pattern||LD (Laser Diode), the pattern of light is compressed into a single beam.||LCD (Light Emitting Diode), the pattern of light is distributed into several lines.|
|Core size||9 um||62.5 um , 50 um|
|Light Source||LD (Laser Diode), Light Source is expensive.||LED (Light Emitting Diode) or Vassel, Light Source is cheaper.|
|Distance||Send the signal farther because LD will send the signal further. Support work from the building level to the cross-country level||Signal short. Suitable for indoor work or a short distance of 300 meters to 2 kilometers|
|Cable’s Price||Cheap price due to the large amount of usage.||Pricey as it does not have a lot of usage.|
