Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Will it affect my broadband signal if i choose a longer fibre patch cord?
No, it will not affect your signal. However, one should be mindful of not to bend the fibre excessively (example: sharp bend, U-shape shape bend).
2. What is the minimum bending radius for fibre patch cord?
The minimum bending radius for our product is 30mm.
3. There are two types of SC fibre patch cord available in the market. One with blue connector and another one with green connector. Which one should i choose? Should i change to the correct type if i bought wrong patch cord?
The correct type of fibre patch cord is SC/APC with green connectors. Blue connectors fibre patch cord is called SC/UPC or SC/PC. It will cause more than 10 db signal loss in some cases. The acceptable loss level for OpenNet infrastructure is 25-30 db depending on area. Most of the houses will experience 16 - 21 db if use SC/APC type of patch cord (normal setting). If SC/UPC patch cord is used, the signal loss will shoot up to higher level. This is the reason why some could still access to their broadband services despite of using SC/UPC patch cord but some could not.

4. I realised there are A and B (or 1,2,A1,B1) labels at the both end of my fibre patch cord. Is there any difference to which side i plug it into my OpenNet TP or ONT?
There is no difference to which side you plug in.
