I need to use mode-conditioning patch cords for getting more distance with MMF and gigabit speed, but I see that this patch cord has LC and SC connector.

I need LC to ST connector, do you know If Cisco has this patch cord or another vendor like Panduit ?.

Thank you, best regards.

Thank you by your help.

Do you know If for every connection LX I need to use two or only one mode-conditioning patch cord ?.

Thank you, best regards.

You need to connect one to each SFP on the link.

Make sure the mode conditioning patch cords you purchase have a multimode fiber core size (50 or 62.5 micron) that matches the fiber that it is being connected to (fiber connecting your facilities).
