fiber optic cabling
Does any body know what the SC and ST connectors stand for [?]

The ST and SC fiber cables are the difference in the connectors on the end.
-ST connector is round and looks like a BNC connector (push and twist).
This page has a pic of an ST connector: http://www.datapro.net/products/1441.html
-SC connector is rectangular (slide in slot).

(There are links on those pages with other types of connectors as well.)
More info you didn't ask for...
Two main catagories of fiber cables:
->Single-mode fibers have small cores (about 3.5 x 10-4 inches or 9 microns in diameter) and transmit infrared laser light (wavelength = 1,300 to 1,550 nanometers).
->Multi-mode fibers have larger cores (about 2.5 x 10-3 inches or 62.5 microns in diameter) and transmit infrared light (wavelength = 850 to 1,300 nm) from light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
