When is OM5 technically and economically viable?


OM5 versus OM4 – Solution concepts and potential applications

The reason for the development of the OM5 fiber is that the continuous increase in data rates demands the constant optimization of the transmission media. The OM5 fiber is the latest member in the 50 µm multimode fiber family.

This whitepaper explains:

  • What characteristics of OM5 are.
  • What the possible applications in contrast to the OM4 fibre are.
  • What factors speak in favour of using OM5.
