Single-mode Fiber

Single-mode fiber is designed for high-bandwidth connections over long distances. It is commonly available in both 8/125µ and 9/125µ types. Single-mode fiber supports longer cables than multi-mode fiber, but is generally more expensive, as it requires a more precise laser optical source. It can use LC, SC, ST, MTRJ, and other connectors.
Some devices designed for single-mode fiber can also support multi-mode fiber, but over shorter distances (See Multi-Mode Fiber).
