OM5 is designed to support at least four low-cost wavelengths in the 850-950 nm range, 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.
Multimode fiber technology has been developed from OM1 multimode to OM5 that now supports 40/100Gbps, which will enable users to get the most effective return on their investment and become the best choice for backbone cabling or fiber to the desktop.
