Tripp Lite offers OM5 fiber patch cable

Tripp Lite has introduced an OM5 multimode fiber patch cable to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet applications. The OM5 Duplex Multimode 50/125 Fiber Patch Cable uses wideband multimode fiber (WBMMF) to support at least four wavelengths in the 850- to 950-nm range. The LC to LC cable will support reaches up to 300 m at 850 nm.

Tripp Lite has introduced an OM5 multimode fiber patch cable to support 40 Gigabit Ethernet and 100 Gigabit Ethernet applications. The OM5 Duplex Multimode 50/125 Fiber Patch Cable uses wideband multimode fiber (WBMMF) to support at least four wavelengths in the 850- to 950-nm range. The LC to LC cable will support reaches up to 300 m at 850 nm.

The OM5-rated multimode fiber-optic cable is designed for use with vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) as well as shortwave wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) technology to provide transmission over longer distances. The low-smoke, zero-halogen (LSZH) jacket limits the amount of toxic smoke emitted in case of fire. The cable is available in lengths from 1 to 25 m and comes with a one-year warranty. The fiber patch cable also meets IEEE 802.3ae and TIA LOMMF standards.

“For fast, clear signal transmission through a local area network or storage area network, this new high-speed cabling provides a solution that’s ideal for high-speed parallel interconnections for head ends, central offices, and data centers,” said David Posner, Tripp Lite’s Director of Product Marketing. “It’s also backward compatible with existing OM3- and OM4-rated fiber, for seamless functionality in current installations, while future-proofing for tomorrow’s growth.”
