    Use a cable tester to verify the proper connectivity of the cable. Optical fiber Optical fibers feature low loss and long transmission distance. Optical fibers can be classified into single mode fibers and multi-mode fibers. A single mode fiber carries only a single ray of light; a multi-mode fiber carries multiple modes of lights. Table 36 Characteristics of single mode and multi-mode optical fibers Characteristics Single mode fiber...
