Multi-Mode Fibre Optic
Emulex adapters support Multi Mode Fibre Optic Cables (MMF) with LC type connector. "LC" refers to the actual connector on the end of the cable, and it stands for "Lucent Connector". There are several kinds of MMF cables that can be purchased, the difference between one type of MMF cable and another is in the size of the core of the cable, which then determines how far apart the HBA can be from a target – also called the link length. Link length is also contingent on the bandwidth designation of the cable, OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4.
