Mode Conditioning Patch Cords are designed for Gigabit Ethernet multimode systems using a 1300nm wavelength. These specialized cords help avoid differential mode delay signal (DMD) that may occur when long wave transceiver modules operate at both single-mode and multimode wavelengths.
The Mode Conditioner causes the single-mode transceiver to create a launch similar to a typical multimode launch. The multimode side of the patch cord is connected to the cable plant side. The single-mode/multimode side of the patch cord is plugged directly into the equipment. Various Mode Conditioning Patch Cord lengths and connector styles are available.
• Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-LX systems
• Network installation and upgrades
