Multi-mode fiber cable is the type of optical fiber typically used to transmit data across short distances, such as across a college campus or throughout a corporate building.
OM1, OM2, OM3, and OM4 fiber cables are, progressively, capable of supporting more bandwidth and/or transmitting data over longer distances. Multi-mode fiber patch cable is used as a backbone network infrastructure for its reliability, high carrying capacity, and lower power consumption.
As opposed to single-mode cables, which are smaller and are aimed at carrying data across longer distances, multimode cable is better for transmitting data across shorter distances. These cables are larger, and therefore have more bandwidth than their smaller counterparts.
It’s important to note that you are capable of running multi-mode cable across a long distance, however, it can limit the bandwidth from 10Mhz to 30Mhz.
Gruber Communication Products offers all different types of multi-mode fiber optic cables, including those that have very little bandwidth to those that tout a lot of bandwidth. The size of multi-mode cable you install will mostly depend on the network you’re setting up and how much bandwidth you expect to use on a daily basis.
This is important to take into consideration, as too little bandwidth will make it harder to perform the work you need to do, and too much bandwidth could end up costing you a lot of unnecessary money.
