Over the past several years, Leviton has polled network professionals about the type of fiber they would install today, and we have seen solid growth in single-mode. In the March 2020 poll of 281 network professionals, more than 60% said they would install single-mode (OS2) today over multimode types, with OM4 coming in second at 28%. This change is largely a result of decreasing cost and recent standards committee activities that continue to promote more single-mode options for higher speeds such as 200 and 400 Gb/s. As this trend continues, the market in general will find single-mode a more enticing option. Let’s take a closer look at reasons behind its rise.
