Presently, networking systems are able to transfer data at speeds of 10GBps with utmost ease, but the demands of users are increasing rapidly. Industry experts predict that this speed will soon become trivial and higher data transfer rates would be required. Fortunately, fiber optic cabling Dubai can face this challenge easily, since the latest EIA standard allows 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps speeds through OM4 optical fiber cables. The OM4 glass is a step above its predecessor, named OM3, and was even known as OM3+ and Extended Bandwidth OM3 previously. It is basically a laser-optimized high bandwidth 50 Ám multimode fiber that is extensively used in computer networking Dubai applications.

Since it supports high speed, enterprise grade data transfers easily, it has become one of the crucial components of any resource-efficient networking set up. Several companies are integrating the OM4 optical fibers in their computer cabling infrastructure. Being a multimode cable, it can easily and effectively replace single mode solutions that are costlier. Within the parameters of 40 and 100 GbE norms, OM4 fiber optic Dubai cable can deliver minimum 125 m reach over multimode fibers. The maximum distance it can cover for 10 Gbps links is 550 m, while OM3 covers up to 300 m.

Of course, it must be noted that in spite of all the benefits of this new variant, OM3 cable will be used for present-day applications. This is so, because OM4 can cater to all existing applications at 4700 Mhz.km, but so can its predecessor. The OM3 fiber optic Dubai can easily transmit the data at 2000 Mhz.km, which is sufficient for any connection having 10 Gbps bandwidth. Additionally, it must be noted that it can also support up to 100 Gbps data transfer speed, albeit the distances it covers are not at par with those covered by OM4 fiber optic cabling Dubai at for the same speed.

Organizations that want to be future-ready in order to deliver relevant data to the clients at speeds up to 100 Gbps are already incorporating these within their premises. To serve this requirement of leading companies, several firms are installing MTP-to-MTP assemblies that support computer networking Dubai systems requiring 40 Gbps and 100 Gbps speeds. The most advanced solutions of this type now make use of 10 Gbps indoor tight buffer distribution cable, indoor interlocking armor tight buffer cable and indoor-outdoor tight buffer. Such solutions will also be equipped with loose tube cable with a variety of jackets, including OFNR, OFNP and LS0H for fulfilling the requirements of present and future computer Misurata cabling requirements.
