I'm hoping some one can help me, I've aquired a few 10m, 25m and 50m fiber patch cables which are all LC-LC along with a few switches and GBICS/SFP's. I'm looking at running the 50m patch between two buildings which are close togeather and currently linked via Cat5e.
The 2nd building has a fiber patch panel with 8 cores linked to our main building on the other side of the site via an overhead fiber link. The following is my current plan:
50M LC-LC Fiber - 1st building to 2nd building via underground pipe
LC-LC Coupler - Joining the 50m patch to the LC-ST Patch
LC-ST Patch - Connecting between the coupler and the patch panel(2nd building)
<Overhead 8core fiber> - 120M
5M ST-LC - Connectiing the coupler and patch panel again(main building)
LC-LC Coupler - Joining the 5M Patch to the final 10M patch
10M LC-LC Fiber - Final connection to the Switch/Server room
Total Distance ~190M
Another option is to just go from the 1st building and connect straight to the switch in there via an LC-LC coupler and an LC-SC cable, a direct connection to the main switch would be prefered though... I'm just not sure how much extra latency will be introduced by the above plan.
