Fiber optic cables
This appendix describes the physical attributes of optical fiber technologies supported on System z servers.
The following topics are covered:
•Fiber connector types
•Mode Conditioning Patch (MCP) cables
Fiber optic cables utilize light for data transmission, rather than electrical current on copper cables. Fiber optic cables have many advantages. For example, they are many times lighter and have substantially reduced bulk, no pins, a smaller and more reliable connector, reduced loss ...
