OM5 versus OM4 - Solution concepts & potential applications

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

This whitepaper explains:

  • What the difference to OM4 is.
  • What characteristics and applications of OM5 are.
  • What new solutions are there for increasing data rates.
