Two industry standards for Fiber Optic Cabling:

Single-mode (100BaseBX standard):

The Single-mode 100BaseBX standard defines a networking protocol that leverages single-mode fiber optics to facilitate high-speed Ethernet communication at 100 megabits per second (100 Mbps). Single-mode fibers use a solitary, narrow optical path for signal transmission, ensuring reduced signal attenuation and dispersion. In the context of 100BaseBX, the “BX” signifies bidirectional communication, indicating that data travels in both upstream and downstream directions over a single fiber strand. This bidirectional communication is achieved by utilizing two distinct wavelengths for transmission. With its focus on longer-distance transmissions and the advantages of single-mode fibers, the 100BaseBX standard is a preferred choice for applications where extended reach and reliable high-bandwidth connectivity are essential, making it particularly suitable for enterprise networks and metropolitan area deployments.

Multimode (100BaseSX standard)

The Multimode 100BaseSX standard is a networking protocol that employs multimode fiber optics to enable high-speed Ethernet communication at 100 megabits per second (100 Mbps). Unlike single-mode fibers, multimode fibers utilize multiple paths or modes for signal transmission. In the context of 100BaseSX, the “SX” indicates short wavelength transmission, typically using wavelengths around 850 nanometers. This standard is well-suited for shorter-distance connections within local area networks (LANs) or between devices within the same physical space. Multimode fibers are more cost-effective for shorter distances but may exhibit higher signal attenuation over longer spans compared to single-mode fibers. The 100BaseSX standard is commonly utilized in environments where high bandwidth and shorter reach are prioritized, making it a prevalent choice for intra-building networking and connectivity within data centers.
