What are the main types of fiber optic cable?

There are three types of fiber optic cable commonly used: single mode, multimode and plastic optical fiber (POF). Transparent glass or plastic fibers which allow light to be guided from one end to the other with minimal loss.

What is difference between SC and LC?

This is one of the basic differences between these two connectors. The SC connector has a ferrule of 2.5mm while the LC features a 1.25mm ferrule which exactly half of the SC size. Because of the smaller size, LC is more commonly used in offices and data centers where there are clusters of Fiber Optic Cables.
