Wide Band Multimode Fiber (OM5)

by Bobby Salerno on May 9, 2017

Wide Band Multimode Fiber (OM5)

What’s new in standards?
Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) initiated a work group in October 2014 to develop guidance for a wide band multimode fiber (WB MMF) 50/125 μm fiber standard to supCorning20SQUARE.pngport short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) transmission. The TIA-492AAAE Standard was published in June 2016. The IEC WB MMF standard is anticipated to be completed by early 2017.

Is OM5 specified in optical transmission standards such as Ethernet and Fibre Channel?
There are no transmission standards that specify OM5 or SWDM. Transmission standards typically include only one multimode fiber variant that is selected based on economic, commercial, and technical criteria. Parallel transmission is the default multimode fiber variant for data rates ≥ 40G.

When will Corning’s connectivity products be available with OM5?
EDGEand EDGE8solutions are now available with OM5.
