Title:

Cable Testing 101: Considerations for Mixing Multimode Fiber Types

Description:

In our last Cable Testing 101 series, we covered the difference between OM3 and OM4 50µm multimode fiber -- primarily the fact that the fiber core of OM4 has been constructed to provide better attenuation and higher bandwidth, thereby allowing for longer link lengths. With OM4 at a premium over OM3, many data centers and LANs not requiring the extra distance afforded by OM4 continue to deploy OM3 multimode fiber cabling, and it remains more widely deployed for that reason. And while the two fiber types can be mixed due to the same core size, there are some considerations in general when it comes to mixing multimode fiber types. – PowerPoint PPT presentation
