Megladon's Mode Conditioning Patch Cords are designed to allow for longwave (1310nm) Gigabit Ethernet applications to function over MM fiber. When Gigabit transceivers launch directly into MM fiber, multiple modes (light pathways) are utilized that do not always have the same transmission length or characteristics, causing Differential Mode Delay (DMD). Mode conditioning cables prevent this from occurring by allowing the transceiver to launch directly into a SM fiber that offset spliced in the MM fiber of choice, allowing for a controlled launch into the MM fiber.
