L-com Releases New OM5 Fiber Cables for High-Speed Data Center Applications

L-com has added a new series of OM5 fiber cable assemblies to address high-speed data center applications. OM5 fiber cable is able to support short wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM) which reduces the parallel fiber count by at least a factor of four. This allows for the use of just two fibers (not eight) for transmitting 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps Ethernet, thus reducing overall fiber counts typically required for higher speed applications.
