Question Paired end in Ion Torrent

Hi you all!

I need your help... I'm trying to search for a translocation using ion torrent sequencing (i know the genes involved in the translocation, but not the exact point of the break of the chromosomes).
The bioinformatitian that is going to help me with the analysis told me it would be better to perform a paired end sequencing, but I'm not sure if I can do it with ion torrent.
Someone told me that ion torrent performs mate pair, not paired end, but I don't understand de difference.
What's the difference between paired end and mate pair? Can I do it with ion torrent?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and respond
