High Quality and Cost-effective ST to LC Duplex 50/125μm OM5 Wideband Multimode Bend Insensitive Fiber Optic Cable
OM5 wideband multimode bend insensitive fiber optimized for multi-wavelengths transmission systems operating in the range of 850-950nm, enabling optimal support of emerging Shortwave Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM) applications that reduce parallel fiber count by at least a factor of four to allow continued use of just two fibers (rather than eight) for transmitting 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s and reduced fiber counts for higher speeds.
OM5 meets TIA-492AAAE and draft IEC 60793-2-10 A1a.4 requirements while completely backward compatible with existing OM4 networks and applications. It meets RoHS compliant and the fiber patch cord is optically tested for insertion loss to ensure high quality.
What are the advantages of OM5 fiber patch cord?
The transmission distance of OM5 fiber is longer than that of OM3 and OM4. The OM4 fiber is designed to support a length of at least 100 meters with a 100G-SWDM4 transceiver. But OM5 fiber can support up to 150 meters in length with the same transceiver.
Lower Fiber Loss: The attenuation of the OM5 broadband multimode cable has been reduced from 3.5dB/km for the previous OM3, OM4 cable to 3.0dB/km, and the bandwidth requirement of 953 nm wavelength has been increased.
OM5 has the same fiber size as OM3 and OM4, which means it is fully compatible with OM3 and OM4. The existing cabling network does not need to be changed to apply to OM5. OM5 fiber is more scalable and flexible, which can support higher-speed network transmission with fewer multimode fiber cores. The cost and power consumption are much lower than single-mode fiber. Therefore, it will be widely used in 100G/400G/1T ultra-large data centers in the future.
