Optical Fiber Overview
The connector type of an optical fiber is the same as the interface type of the optical module to which the optical fiber is connected. Connector types of optical fibers include LC, SC, FC, ST, MU, and MPO. LC connectors are the most widely used.
Optical fibers are classified into multimode and single-mode optical fibers:
1) Most of multimode optical fibers are orange, but a few multimode optical fibers are other colors. For example, optical fibers with MPO connectors are light green. Multimode optical fibers can be used with multimode optical modules to implement low-cost, short-distance transmission.
2) Single-mode optical fibers are yellow. They can be used with single-mode optical modules to implement long-distance transmission.
Precautions for use of Optical Fibers
1) The bend radius of optical fibers must be larger than the minimum bend radius allowed by the optical fibers. Otherwise, the optical fibers will be damaged, and quality of optical signals will degrade.
2) Do not look into an optical port without eye protection, or the laser may hurt your eyes.
3) It is recommended that idle fiber connectors be covered with dust-proof caps to keep the fiber connectors clean. An unclean fiber connector may degrade the quality of optical signals or even cause link failures or error codes on the link.

Hi


Please find the below  some suggestions


A few properties particular to fiber optic cable can cause problems if you aren’t careful during installation: 


Intrinsic power loss — As the optic signal travels through the fiber core, the signal inevitably loses some speed through absorption, reflection, and scattering. This problem is easy to manage by making sure your splices are good and your connections are clean.

 
Microbending — Microbends are minute deviations in fiber caused by excessive bends, pinches, and kinks. Using cable with reinforcing fibers and other special manufacturing techniques minimizes this problem. 


Connector loss — Connector loss occurs when two fiber segments are misaligned. This problem is commonly caused by poor splicing. Scratches and dirt introduced during the splicing process can also cause connector loss. 


Coupling loss — Similar to connector loss, coupling loss results in reduced signal power and is from poorly terminated connector couplings. Remember to be careful and use common sense when installing fiber cable. Use clean components. Keep dirt and dust to a minimum. Don’t pull the cable excessively or bend it too sharply around corners.
