Fiber, fibre and OM4!

November 12, 2014

What’s the difference?
The words Fiber and Fibre are often swapped, most people assume that it is American versus UK spelling, but that is wrong. Fiber is actually the Fiber optic cable whereas Fibre is a generic term to describe the Fabric, which can include both Fiber and Copper technology that links your storage, switches and servers.

OM stands for Optical Multi-mode (multiple rays of light simultaneously) and the 4 refers to the latest version that can extend communications up to 300 meters at 10 Gb/s.
