Fiber Optic Cables, Network Patch Cables

Green optical fiber cables are considered multi mode fiber optic cables, which means that they contain more than one glass fiber strand at their core. They are the newest kind of fiber optic cable and are designed to support multiple wavelengths. 

Even if you have some experience working with fiber optic cable in a home or office environment, you might not have had much opportunity to work with neon green-color fiber cables. These OM5 multi mode cables utilize some of the most cutting edge technology in the data networking industry. 

These cables were specifically designed to handle high-speed data center applications and can transfer up to 100GB of data with ease. With the technology introduced to OM5 cables, the wavelengths increase each fiber's capacity by at least a factor of four (there's either a fourfold data-rate increase or a fourfold reduction in the fibers required to achieve a given data rate). The signals are sent down one fiber over four separate operating windows. Our OM5 cables feature green 50/125 riser-rated jackets with the same high quality duplex LC connectors you'll find in our other Datacomm cables for some of the most competitive prices on the market!

OM5 Fiber Optic Cables

OM5 cables are considered the first Wide Band Multimode Fiber (or WBMMF) designed especially to rapidfire data center operations by using just two fibers to transmit anywhere between 40FBs all the way up to 100GBs. According to their specifications, they operate on a range of wavelengths between 850nm and 953nm. Because of the advanced technology involved in their manufacture, they're built at to a mere 2mm diameter allowing for their convenient use in dense network switches in data racks.
