Continuously increasing demand for high data rates and bandwidth has led to the innovation of a new generation of multi-mode fiber. Molex announces the introduction of its OM5 (Optical Multimode), which complements its range of existing OM3 and OM4 short-wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) technology. That enables the transmission of at least four low-cost wavelengths for longer distances, reducing the fiber count for high-speed applications.
The increasing need for faster data speed in the data centers requires more fibers in parallel, but increasing fiber count is practical only up to a point, and after that, it poses cable management and space challenges.
The OM5 fiber features extended bandwidth range of 850 to 950nm that enables it to provide optimal support to SWDM applications by enhancing its capability to transmit at least four low-cost wavelengths for longer distance, reducing parallel fiber count by four-folds.
Transmission of 40G and 100G over a single pair of fiber, reducing the fiber count for high speeds by 75%, offering significant space and cost savings.
Supports at least four low-cost wavelengths in the 850 to 950nm range.
Optimal support to SWDM applications with longer transmission distance and ability to migrate up to 400Gbps.
Backward compatibility with OM3 and OM4 makes it easy to upgrade data center network infrastructure for OM5.
