OM5 Fibre Patch Leads refer to optical fibre patch cables constructed with OM5-grade optical fibres. OM5, or Optical Multimode 5, is a recent standard for multimode optical fibres designed to support high-speed data transmission in networking applications. OM5 is specifically engineered to support short-wavelength division multiplexing (SWDM), allowing for multiple wavelengths to be transmitted over the same fibre, significantly increasing bandwidth capabilities.

Key Features:

  1. Multimode Fibre: OM5 fibres are multimode fibres, allowing the transmission of multiple modes or rays of light simultaneously.

  2. Enhanced Bandwidth: OM5 fibres provide increased bandwidth capabilities, supporting high-speed applications and SWDM technology.

  3. Short-Wavelength Division Multiplexing (SWDM): OM5 is optimised for SWDM, allowing multiple wavelengths to be used simultaneously on the same fibre for enhanced bandwidth.

  4. Wide Range of Applications: OM5 Fibre Patch Leads are suitable for a variety of applications, including data centres, enterprise networks, and environments requiring high-speed, high-bandwidth connectivity.

  5. Lime Green Jacket Colour: OM5 fibres are often identified by their distinctive lime green-coloured jacket, helping to differentiate them from other fibre types.


OM5 Fibre Patch Leads are designed for environments requiring advanced networking capabilities and higher bandwidth, such as data centres and enterprise networks. They are particularly well-suited for applications where SWDM technology is implemented to maximise fibre optic infrastructure efficiency.

In summary, OM5 Fibre Patch Leads offer a high-performance solution for multimode fibre optic connections, ensuring efficient and reliable data transmission in demanding networking applications with an emphasis on increased bandwidth and SWDM capabilities.
