May I mix fibers with a core diameter of 62.5 μm and 50 within a system?

February 5, 2020

While technically feasible, mixing 50 µm and 62.5 μm fibers is not recommended. Industry standards typically require uniform fiber types in each link, including patch cords and jumpers. In addition, linking 50 µm and 62.5 μm fibers typically results in higher coupling losses.
