OM1 vs OM2 vs OM3 vs OM4 vs OM5: What’s the Difference?
The prime distinction between multimode fibers rests on physical difference. Accordingly, physical difference leads to different transmission data rate and distance. Watch the following video to learn the differences between OM1, OM2, OM3, OM4 & OM5 multimode fibers.
Physical difference mainly lies in diameter, jacket color, optical source and bandwidth, which is described in the following table.
MMF Cable Type Diameter Jacket Color Optical Source Bandwidth
OM1 62.5/125µm Orange LED 200MHz*km
OM2 50/125µm Orange LED 500MHz*km
OM3 50/125µm Aqua VSCEL 2000MHz*km
OM4 50/125µm Aqua VSCEL 4700MHz*km
OM5 50/125µm Lime Green VSCEL 28000MHz*km
Multimode fibers are able to transmit different distance ranges at various data rate. You can choose the most suited one according to your actual application. The max multimode fiber distance comparison at different data rate is specified below.
