What is the maximum distance of fiber optic cable?

OS1 fiber optic cable is designed for premises where the maximum distance is 2,000 metres with transmission speeds of 1 to 10 gigabit Ethernet. OS2 fiber optic cable is designed for larger transmission distances in the range of 5,000 to 10,000 metres with similar transmission speed of 1 to 10 gigabit Ethernet.

What is the maximum distance OM4 will support 10 Gigabit Ethernet?

Fifty micron OM3 fiber is designed to accommodate 10 Gigabit Ethernet up to 300 meters, and OM4 can accommodate it up to 550 meters.

What is the difference between OM3 and OM4?

The real difference between OM3 and OM4 multimode cable is that OM4 provides a higher modal bandwidth–4700 MHz·km compared to 2000 MHz·km for OM3. This means that OM4 can transmit more information within the same distance.

Does OM4 support 40G?

Furthermore, OM3 and OM4 fibers both support speeds of 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s. Through the usage of parallel-optics transmission technology, 40G and 100G Ethernet can transmit and receive data simultaneously, and over multiple fiber optics.

Is OM3 or OM4 better?

Does OM4 support 100G?

OM4 fiber is mainly used for Ethernet of 10G, 40G, and 100G.

Can I use OM4 instead of OM3?

OM3 is fully compatible with OM4. With so many similarities, and often manufactured with the same color aqua cable jacket and connectors, it can be difficult to tell these two fiber types apart.

How far can you run cat 8 cable?

Category 8 has a maximum Permanent Link Length of 24m (78′) and a maximum Channel length of 30m (100′) when supporting 25Gbps and 40Gbps speeds. Category 8 cabling can support data speeds of 10Gbps and lower at a full 100m (328′) Channel configuration.

Should I use OM3 or OM4?

How far can multi mode fiber go?

Multimode fiber will allow transmission distances of up to about 10 miles and will allow the use of relatively inexpensive fiber optic transmitters and receivers. There will be bandwidth limitations of a few hundred MHz per Km of length. Consequently, a 10 mile link will be limited to about 10 to 30 MHz.
