Decisions, decisions: OM3 vs OM4 Multimode Fiber

Posted by Cablesys on Jun 12th 2018

OM3 Versus OM4 Multimode Fiber There is a difference between OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber (MMF) optic cables. The ongoing evolution of technologies in servers and storage devices is pushing the need for increased data rates. As a result, fiber optic cables are evolving to stay ahead of the demand in bandwidth. This article will address the differences in speed, distance, physical characteristics, and price. Overview OM3 and OM4 fibers are laser-optimized with a 50/125 core, which are made t...

Fiber: The Causes of Limitation on Optical Transmission Distance

Posted by Cablesys on May 14th 2018

The many advantages of fiber optic networking, such as higher speeds, bandwidth, and density, have made it the preferred standard over copper networking. Fiber optic cable can also broadcast/transmit at much further distances than traditional copper cables, such as coax or twisted pair wire, can. But, overall, the precise distance that fiber optic can broadcast/transmit over is restricted by various elements. One of the main complications with using fiber is transmission distance. Transm...

Fiber: What’s the Difference: Single-mode Cabling Cost vs. Multimode Cabling Cost

Posted by Cablesys on Feb 2nd 2018

Introduction SMF and MMF cabling have been amongst popular discussion lately. Which is more cost effective? Typically, single-mode cable is considerably cheaper than multimode, but the remaining components needed to complete the single mode system are more expensive. This post will identify the different component costs of single mode and multimode fiber optics.Network Pricing Single-mode fibers are preferred when executing long-distance applications. These long-distance applicatio...
