Differences Between OM3 and OM4 Fiber

When deciding between OM3 and OM4, here are a few considerations for you to take into account.

OM - Optical Multimode

Used for short distances, Optical Multimode (OM) is a type of optical fiber with a large core diameter that allows multiple modes of light to propagate inside the core. This allows more data to pass through, however due to the amount of light being reflected and the attenuation that accompanies it, this type of fiber is mainly used for short distances when compared to single mode fiber.

Choosing a Network Cable that is Right for Me

Date: Aug/5/2016

Cat5e has been around for quite some time now, while Cat6, Cat6a are following in the footsteps with overall faster speeds and many other differences such as price, length, and shielding options in cable runs. Talking about speed first, generally Cat5e can go up to 1 Gigabit with 350 Mhz, where Cat6 and Cat6a are at 10 Gigabit with 550 Mhz. For most residential and home usage, Cat5e will be the preferred choice as the distances are fairly short and the speed in regular home internet setups would likely not b

Date: Nov/5/2015

Antennas are the most physically visible component of a wireless infrastructure. Whether it be radio, LAN, or otherwise, an antenna is extremely important. The antennas primary function is to transmit and receive clear signals between multiple wireless points. It is safe to say that an effective and efficient wireless network will require antennas to operate properly. For home, office, or outdoor wireless networks, a good antenna provides a professional solution to wireless connectivity. There exists many differe
