I’ve read about the new 50-micron laser optimized multimode fiber. When should I specify that instead of standard 50-micron or 62.5 micron fiber?

Companies that are installing fiber today should consider the new 50-micron laser-optimized multimode fiber as it will fully support 10 Mbps or 100 Mb/s legacy applications as well as provide 1 and 10 Gb/s future-proofing. In addition, laser optimized 50-micron multimode fiber supports low-cost multimode opto-electronics and low-cost, easy-to-install connectors.

However, if your company already has 62.5 micron or standard 50-micron installed in its network there’s no need to panic — or to pull out the fiber and recable. Both of these fiber types offer the ability to support application up to Gigabit levels and are likely to meet your company’s networking needs for many years to come.
