    Multi-mode fibers

    Multi-mode fibers are mainly used for applications that simply require signals to be transmitted over short distances. Examples include company or campus networks. In contrast with single-mode fibers, several thousand modes can be propagated in the core of a multi-mode fiber. This allows for significantly higher power transmission, something that is exploited in laser devices. Over long distances, however, dispersion effects arise that lead to signal distortion. Because of this, single-mode fibers are the product of choice for long distances.

    Increases bendability, maintains reliability*

    • InfiniCor®
      In today’s business environment, communication must be instant, with large quantities of data transmitted effortlessly, at the touch of a button. With a large 62.5 µm core and precise profile control, InfiniCor® multimode optical fiber delivers high performance with LED protocols. It optimizes performance in legacy enterprise, local area, and storage area networks, as well as in central office interconnects.

    • ClearCurve® Multi-mode Optical Fiber Corning® ClearCurve® ultra-bendable, laser-optimized multimode optical fiber delivers enhanced macrobending performance while maintaining compatibility with current optical fibers, equipment, practices and procedures. ClearCurve® OM2, OM3, and OM4 multimode fibers are designed to withstand tight bends and challenging cabling routes with substantially less signal loss than conventional multimode fiber.
