Here is a sneak peak into what is inside a fibre optic patch panel. This was tight buffered OM4, 16 core, fibre optic install. The cable linked a clients main comms room to a secondary comms rack in a new office extension.
Because the cable was routed internally we used tight buffered fibre optic cable. We used OM 4, as the customer required a 10G connection, which was good for up to 400m.
