what gauge fiber optic cable for SFS7008PHA

Unanswered Question
Jan 30th, 2007

For a (high availability) server switch,

SFS7008PHA, which gauge of fiber optic cable, 50 micron or 62.5 micron, is the best for speed and nondegradation of data quality ? The cable lengths attaching to computers or large displays are 30 meters or longer and have LC-SC connectors.

I have this problem too.

Go for 50 micron optical connection.

With 50-micron cables, port-to-port fiber distances can exceed 200 m, and with 62.5-micron cables, port-to-port fiber distances go up to 75 m. One Pluggable Optical Module (POM) is needed for each port involved in the connection; so, one switch-to-switch connection would require two POMs. The POMs can be ordered directly from vendors such as Emcore or Fujitsu.
