When should I use OM3 fibre cable over OM1 fibre cable?

Time: 2021-06-29 Views: 915

OM3 fibre must be used where the fibre optic cable run distance exceeds 220 metres @ 1000mbp/s ( 1Gb/s) speed on a typical multimode network. OM3 will extend the distance up to 550 metres @ 1Gb/s speed. OM3 can also handle 10GbE (10,000mbp/s) at a distance of up to 300 metres. OM3 should be installed to help future-proof your multimode installation.
