The FC IO module has an LC Fiber optic installed, so LC to LC fiber is used.

Sorry, I haven't been in here for a while, but I would question the answer in this case as it only defines the connector type and nothing about the cable itself.

The most important piece of knowledge about the cable is that it is multi-mode fiber. It's probably going to be OM-3, or at least some 50 micron variant... although for short distances the 62.5 micron will sometimes still do the job.

Saying it's an "LC Fiber" cable isn't wrong but it isn't right either. Most single mode fiber still uses LC connectors but it won't do the job. The spec sheet states OM2 or OM3 cabling (multi-mode).
