The blue port is SC/PC port, the green port is SC/APC.
PC: physical contact, a typical hand polished connector will measure at –30dB.
SPC: super Physical Contact, industry standard is a minimum of –40dB for SPC back reflection measurement.
If even less back reflection is required, an APC, or Angled Physical Contact polish, might be necessary. An APC connector has an 8º angle cut into the ferrule. These connectors are identifiable by their green color. An APC polished connector has an Industry Standard Minimum f –60dB ORL measurement. APC fiber ends have low back reflection even when disconnected.
But the difference between the GPON port would not affect to use.
