Commonly Used Multimode Optical Fibers

Posted by Kevin Miller on Thu, Jul 22, 2010 @ 12:07 PM

Multimode optical fiber is a type of optical fiber widely used for shorter distance applications (data center, campus, premise, etc), due to its larger core sizes (62.5um and 50um), high capacity, and high reliability.

As the requirements for greater bandwidth have grown in recent years, many users look to purchase multimode fibers based on the ISO 11801 standards (OM1, OM2, OM3, & OM4) to meet the needs of their applications.

With several manufacturers providing multimode optical fibers, below are the most popular brand & types from each manufacturer:

OM1

      Corning®InfiniCor®
      Draka Standard Multimode
      OFS Standard Multimode

OM2

      Corning® ClearCurve®
      Draka MaxCap / BendBright
      OFS LaserWave G+ / Flex G+

OM3
      Corning® ClearCurve®
      Draka MaxCap / BendBright
      OFS LaserWave 300 / Flex 300

OM4
