Mode conditioning patch cord are used in Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-LX applications, and deploying new high-speed 1000BASE-LX routers, switches, or transceivers within existing multimode system backbones. It includes multimode 62.5/125 and 50/125 and often used in the 1300nm or 1310nm optical wavelength window. 


Any attempt to connect 1000Base-LX/LH equipment over short distances of multimode fiber without the use of mode conditioning fiber will result in a high bit error rate. Mode conditioning cables are normally used in pairs to connect the equipment to the cable plant. So then these cables are usually ordered in even numbers.
