  •  Sun Telecom's OM5 wideband multimode fiber optic patch cord optimized for multi-wavelengths transmission systems operating in the range of 850-950 nm, enabling optimal support of emerging Shortwave Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM) applications that reduce parallel fiber count by at least a factor of four to allow continued use of just two fibers (rather than eight) for transmitting 40 Gb/s (up to 400m) and 100 Gb/s (up to 150m) and reduced fiber counts for higher speeds.
