Differences between OM5, OM3 and OM4 fiber optic jumpers

Differences between OM5, OM3 and OM4 fiber optic jumpers

As the demand for high-bandwidth and high-speed applications in data centers increases, OM5 fiber optic jumpers will become a new type of multimode fiber jumper for high-speed data center applications, which has attracted widespread attention in the industry. So what is the difference between it and OM3/OM4 fiber optic jumper? Let’s learn and share together today:

First of all, let’s get to know the OM5 fiber optic jumper.

OM5 fiber jumper was originally called broadband multimode fiber jumper. It is a new standard for fiber jumper defined by TIA and IEC. The fiber diameter is 50/125μm. Compared with OM3 and OM4 fiber jumper, OM5 fiber jumper Can be used for higher bandwidth applications. In February 2017, TIA stipulated that the identification color of OM5 fiber optic patch cords is water green.

What is the difference between OM5 fiber optic jumper and OM3/OM4 fiber jumper?

  1. Outer sheath color: Generally speaking, the outer sheath color of OM3 and OM4 optical fiber jumpers is turquoise or purple, while the outer sheath color of OM5 optical fiber jumper is water green.
  2. Wavelength: The working wavelength of OM5 fiber patch cord is 850/1300nm, and it can support at least 4 wavelengths. The usual operating wavelengths of OM3 and OM4 are 850nm and 1300nm. In the same wavelength window, the transmission distance of this multimode fiber jumper is also different.
  3. Effective mode bandwidth (EMB): OM5 fiber patch cord has a higher breakthrough in effective mode bandwidth (EMB), which increases the effective mode bandwidth (EMB) at 850nm wavelength to 6000MHZ.km, near 880nm wavelength It even reaches 8000MHZ.km, which far exceeds the traditional OM3 and OM4 multimode fiber patch cords.
  4. What are the advantages of OM5 fiber optic jumpers?

The advantages of OM5 fiber optic jumpers are: 1. Strong scalability 2. Strong compatibility and interoperability 3. Reduce costs 4. Widely recognized

  1. The introduction of OM5 fiber optic jumper has attracted widespread attention and discussion, and it will bring earth-shaking changes to the data center. It is believed that OM5 fiber optic patch cords will be widely used in the near future.
