Understanding How Optical Fiber Type Affects Speed and Distance

In this video you are given the basics of how Optical Fiber Type affects speed and distance, starting with Multimode 62.5/125 µm (AKA: OM1) and Multimode 50/125 µm core size comes in three different classifications (OM2, OM3 and OM4). Singlemode Fiber is also discussed. These optical fiber types have great differences in their speed and distance as you will see.
