For an LC interface with singlemode fiber, I would use an LC/UPC patchcord (length determined by installation), such as the following made by Panduit (a Cisco partner), <http://www.panduit.com/search/product_details.asp?N=5000001+17+4294756092+3000186+&Ne=4000005&region=USA&recName=F9E10-10M1Y>


There are many styles of patch panels that support LC connectors. I would recommend using panels with adapters that have zirconia ceramic sleeves as these are more accurate and durable. Also, try to locate panels which have good fiber routing channels to protect the singlemode fibers from excessive bends.


Below is a link to one type of solution.

Hope this helps!
