Fiber transmission distance is largely dependent on the electronics and their light output, but in practice we find single mode also outperforms multimode. Single mode fiber supports short distance transmission and long distance transmission regardless of signal bandwidth and/or resolution (such as 1080p, 4K and 8K video). Most electronics will transmit up to 10km (6.2 miles) over a standard single mode cable.

Multimode, on the other hand, has a much shorter maximum transmission distance that's affected by cable grade as indicated in the above chart. We typically find the max distance between 300m - 550m (1,000 - 1,800 feet).



Monomode Fibre :-

  • Short distance cable runs (less than 1000 ft.)
  • Long distance cable runs (greater than 1000 ft.)
  • Highest bandwidth support
  • Lower cable cost
  • Higher to electronics cost
  • Harder to terminate due to smaller core size



Multimode FIbre :-

  • Short distance cable runs (less than 1000 ft.)
  • High bandwidth support
  • Higher cable cost
  • Lower electronics cost
  • Easier to terminate due to larger core size
