ProLabs OM5 fiber patch cables are optimized for the growing needs of today’s data centers.
ProLabs OM5 fiber patch cables are optimized for the growing needs of today’s data centers. OM5, or wide-band multimode fiber, is designed to accommodate bidirectional and wavelength division multiplexing technology utilized in data centers around the world.
OM5 is especially optimized to support bidirectional (40G-SR-BD and 400G-SR4.2) and wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) technologies over multimode fiber by opening a wider spectral range to 840nm to 953nm. OM5 cable links offer longer supported distances for these technologies and OM5 patch cables are backwards compatible with older OM4/OM3/etc. standards.
