⭕ Fiber optic networks rely on fiber patch cords , the colorful connectors that link devices like switches, routers, and servers. But have you ever wondered what the cable color means? It serves as a clue to the fiber type, mode, and supported speed
Let’s delve into the world of multimode fiber (OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4, and OM5)
OM1:with a larger core (62.5 microns), excels at short distances and moderate speeds (1 Gbps up to 300 meters, 10 Gbps up to 33 meters).
OM2:a thinner core (50 microns) and supports faster speeds over longer distances (1 Gbps up to 550 meters, 10 Gbps up to 82 meters).

OM3:a 50 microns core but with higher bandwidth (2000 MHz*km). Conquer distances with 10 Gbps up to 300 meters or into higher speeds (40/100 Gbps up to 100 meters).

OM4: boasts an impressive 4700 MHz*km bandwidth. This translates to even better performance, especially for 10 Gbps (up to 550 meters) and 40/100 Gbps (up to 150 meters) networks.

✳ Green:
OM5 : it utilizes 50 microns core and embraces a different approach: Short Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM). This allows for multiple wavelengths on a single cable, boosting capacity and flexibility, making it perfect for data centers.
