This OM5 wide-band multimode patch cable is constructed with bend-insensitive fiber, optimized for multi-wavelengths, operating in the range of 850-950nm. This enables support of emerging Shortwave Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM) applications that reduce parallel fiber count by at least a factor of four! Allowing the use of just two fibers (rather than eight) for transmitting 40 Gbs and 100 Gbs.
These cables are backward compatible with existing OM4 networks and applications.
