What type of connection is this?  And when I see that there is a yellow sleeve, is that a mode conditioner?  Regular MM patches are supposed to be only one color right (both strands orange)?  

Or is black and red suppose to be mode conditioner patches?

LC. Those should be OM2 (orange) cables. Not sure about red and black.

Pera, Jovic is right. Those are LC, You can tell because they are close together. The SC connections are wider. They are further apart. There are no mode conditioners in the picture. The red and black and white and yellow are normal. They tell which one is which, and help you match the cables up with the receptacles correctly. I think that the comment about the orange being OM2 has to do with the orange cable connecting to an aqua terminal. They have different ratings.

A page like this will give information about the ratings: http://www.cablek.com/technical-reference/fiber-optic-cable-types
