To meet the challenges associated with escalating data rates and the ongoing need to build cost-effective infrastructure that can support bandwidth needs today and in the future, CommScope has developed LazrSPEED® OM5 WideBand Multimode Fiber (WBMMF) cabling solutions, which enhance the ability of short-wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) technology to provide at least a four-fold increase in usable bandwidth. OM5 maintains compatibility with OM3 and OM4 fibers and supports all legacy multimode applications.
LazrSPEED OM5 WBMMF expands the specified high-bandwidth operating wavelength spectrum from a single wavelength at 850 nm to a range of more than 100 nm that includes 850 nm through 950 nm. This wide specification range enhances SWDM technology’s capability to transmit 40G and 100G over a single pair of fibers and to drastically increase the capacity of parallel-fiber infrastructure, opening the door to four-pair 400GE and terabit applications.
