What is meant by a 24 Multi Core Fibre Cable.
I am having a bit of trouble getting my head around the idea of what exactly is a 24 core multi-mode fibre optic cable. I know what multi mode is. However I do not fully understand what is meant by 24 core. Is it like having 24 individual fibres in one wire. If so how does each of these individual wires connect to the switches or media convertor and do they allow diffrent data to be carried down each of the cores.
Thanks in advance for your help
