40/100/400 GbE Cable Supports Higher Bandwidths Needed for High-Density Data Networking
The N842B-05M-12-MF is a premium multimode fiber optic cable that supports 400 Gb Ethernet speeds for transmitting data and voice signals over short distances. It is designed to support higher bandwidths for high-density patching between data center MDFs and IDFs in enterprise installations. This multimode 50/125 OM3 cable is an ideal choice for 100 Gb Ethernet applications up to 100 meters (328 feet) at 1300 nm. It is also backward compatible with 10 Gb and 25 Gb networks, so you can future-proof your current application for an eventual upgrade to 100 Gb or 400 Gb.
100% Tested for Low Insertion Loss
The factory-terminated 12-fiber MTP/MPO connectors have documented insertion loss testing and attenuation loss that meets or exceeds current standards. The connectors' slim boot and aqua housing allow easy one-handed installation and removal of the cable. With one male and one female connector, this cable lets you extend the length of your connection and eliminates the need for long fan-out cables or individual long duplex cable runs.
Aqua-Colored Jacket Helps Avoid Misidentification That Can Cause Costly Downtime
The N842B-05M-12-MF has an aqua jacket to identify it as multimode in a crowded patch panel or switch and prevent it from becoming accidentally disconnected. The round low-smoke zero-halogen (LSZH) jacket limits the amount of toxic smoke emitted in case of combustion, making it suitable for poorly ventilated areas.
