Fibre Multimode vs Single Mode

Difference in Bandwidth

Difference in bandwidth in Single-mode vs multimode optical fibers

When it comes to bandwidth, both optical fiber types function differently. Single Mode Fiber Optical Cable uses strong and brighter light sources with lower attenuation. At the same time, it can deliver unlimited bandwidth, making it a preferred choice in this high-paced world.

As compared to this, Multimode Fiber Optical Cable can transmit multiple light modes. Also, the attenuation is higher, and the brightness is lower. And this is the reason why the bandwidth is limited in Multimode Fiber optical cables. Higher bandwidth is an obvious choice among users who prefer an uninterrupted experience, so the single-mode optical fiber has the upper hand over Multimode Fiber Optical Cable in this regard.
