Wide Band Multimode Fiber [WR9440]

This webinar provides a technical briefing on Wide Band Multimode fiber (WBMMF) and the transition towards Shortwave Wave Division Multiplexing (SWDM).

Estimated study time: 40 minutes


The webcasts for this course are available in the following languages:

plus additional languages available for assessments.

This technical briefing covers the development of Wide Band Multimode fiber cabling (WBMMF), a ‘next generation’ multimode fiber designed to support Shortwave Wave Division Multiplexing (SWDM). It explores the drivers behind this evolution, how it is achieved, its technical specification, the benefits, standardization and future developments.

Pre-requisite experience:

No pre-requisite knowledge is required for this course, although a knowledge of fiber optic fundamentals and existing cabling types would be useful.


The webinar is designed to provide students with a technical understanding of wide band multimode fiber solutions and interfaces emerging for use in the Data Center. It explores the challenges and limitations of current solutions and takes a technical look at the design and specification of the next generation products and interfaces. It includes:

  • The application drivers
  • An overview of multiplexing technology
  • Trends in time division multiplexing
  • Trends in space division multiplexing (a.k.a. parallel fibers)
  • Trends in short-wavelength division multiplexing
  • The benefits of SWDM and WBMMF
  • Cabling evolution roadmap examples
  • Bandwidth-wavelength relationships
  • Wavelength usage refinement
  • Bandwidth and transmission performance data
  • Standardization

Intended audience:

The intended audience is anyone involved in infrastructure design, primarily with Data Centers, specification and installation, technical support, sales and consultancy.
