Cables with 1-12 Fibers
Color code, used in fiber optics, resembles that of copper. The major difference is 12-color sequence as oppose to 10-color for copper. The sequence of colors is the same, with addition of two colors - Rose (11-th) and Aqua (12-th).
There are also colors that designate the type of the optical fibers. It is not always followed by all manufacturers, and also, this code only applies to indoor cables: multimode fiber cables have orange jacket, and singlemode fiber cables have yellow.
