New Life for Old Multimode Cabling Systems

White Paper


As the world uses more video, data and voice over fiber, currently installed multimode fiber may not keep up with demands.


The obvious way to solve this problem and achieve faster data speeds across longer distances is to replace multimode fiber with singlemode fiber. But recabling can be disruptive, expensive and time-consuming.


Until recently, owners had two options: live with the inconveniences of recabling or live with the limitations of their legacy multimode fiber. But OMPlex technology from Modular Photonics offers a way to increase data capacity by up to 1,000 times—at a fraction of the cost of recabling.


In this white paper, you will learn:

  • How OMPlex technology works
  • When it can be used
  • How it performed in a test conducted on a university campus
