What type of Fibre cable and equipment do you need for your installation?

 

There are two types of Fibre used in communications infrastructure, Single Mode (OS1, OS2) and Multimode (OM1 – OM4). In basic terms, the main reason you would usually choose one over the other comes down to the capacity for how much data can be transferred over a maximum distance.

In short: Multimode (OM4) cable can provide optimum transfer of 100 Gigabytes of data up to distances of 150 Metres. Single mode (OS1 & OS2) can provide optimum transfer of this level of data over 40 Kilometres.

Moving down to 1 Gigabyte of data, the numbers become 1,100 Metres and 100 Kilometres respectively.  So the difference is of massive proportions!

In reality, unless you have a specific applications that requires the cabling to be single mode, or you’re looking for connectivity over great distances, the chances are you’ll be looking at installing Multimode fibre cabling.
