Technologies and Products

The OM5, from Kamaxoptic Communication, has been approved as a new multimode optical fibre for high-speed data centre applications and is designed to support at least four low-cost wavelengths in the 850-950 nm range. The product enables optimal support of emerging Shortwave Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM) applications that reduce the parallel fibre count by at least a factor of four, allows continued use of just two fibres (rather than eight) for transmitting 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s and reduces fibre counts for higher speeds. OM5 cabling is fully compatible and intermateable with OM3 and OM4 cabling.
