Multi Mode Fibre Optic
Multimode fibre optic cabling is generally used for fibre links less than 350m allowing speeds of up to 10Gbit/s. There is little price difference between multimode and single-mode fibre optic cable, however the equipment used to transmit over multimode cabling is less expensive than single mode.
The two most common types of multimode cabling is OM1 62.5/125 and OM2 50/125 which typically support 1Gbit/s using LED transmitters. With OM3 & OM4 fibre optic cabling, again with a core size of 50/125, networks are able to support 10Gbit/s due to the OM3 & OM4 lazer optimised core.
