Fiber optic tutorial there are two basic types of fiber used today and many different types of Fiber Optic Cable. The two types of fiber are called SingleMode (SM) and MultiMode (MM), and SM fiber is more expensive but more efficient than MM fiber. SingleMode fiber is generally used where the distances to be covered are greater
