Multimode 50/125 Fiber Cable


Often used for communication across short distances, multimode optical fiber is popular within buildings and on campuses. Because equipment used with multimode fiber is less expensive than that used for singlemode fiber and because of its high capacity and outstanding reliability, multimode fiber optic cable is a popular choice for many situations and is often used for backbone applications in buildings. Discount Low Voltage carries a large selection of 50-micron multimode 50/125 fiber optic cable, giving you maximum flexibility to find exactly the right product at exactly the right price point to suit your needs.
Using 50-micron fiber cable gives your business, school campus or industrial park the bandwidth needed for Gigabit Ethernet, 10-Gigabit Ethernet and other high-speed data solutions. It can be used as both the backbone of a building network and for horizontal cabling runs between buildings. This cable offers nearly three times as much bandwidth as a 62.5-micron cable, but has a lower power budget, making it ideal for mid-sized installations without as many connections. 


At Discount Low Voltage, you’ll find OM2 fiber cables and OM3 fiber cables here as well as OM4 cables. OM3 and OM4 cable have both been laser-optimized to support 10-Gigabet Ethernet over longer distances than OM2. Our 50-micron fiber cables are available from leading manufacturers like AFL, Corning and OCC, so you can buy with confidence. They can be divided into several categories, including:

Indoor 50/125 cable
Indoor/outdoor microfiber cable
Direct burial cable
Aerial/burial cable
Patch cord fiber

For strictly indoor use, we offer 6-strand, 12-strand and 24-strand multimode 50/125 fiber optic cables to tackle any job inside. For those really big jobs, we also carry indoor multimode 50/125 fiber in 48-, 72- and 96-fiber versions. These cables permit the highest-density infrastructures, saving space while making fiber management easier.

Discount Low Voltage also carries versatile indoor/outdoor multimode 50/125 fiber optic cables that resist moisture, fungus and the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Using these cables gives you maximum flexibility to tackle tasks inside or outside. They can be run from the indoors to the outdoors as well without needing to splice separate cables together. For really tough outdoors applications, browse our big collection of direct-burial 50/125 cables. Featuring armored, gel-free construction, these cables are lightweight and boast full water-blocking properties. Our indoor/outdoor and direct burial fiber cables are available in 6-, 12, and 24-strand construction.

Other selections include aerial/burial in duct cables and duplex and simplex patch cords. Aerial and burial 50/125 cable has an outer jacket that resists cuts and flames for when you need to run cable from a pole, along a building exterior or in ductwork. Our zip-cord patch fiber cable will seamlessly connect two separate cable runs and make them one.


Thanks to our high-tech cable-cutting machinery, we can cut your cables to length, meaning you buy only what you need. Most cables are priced by the foot so you don’t pay for cable you won’t be using. Some of these 50/125 multimode optical cables are also available with quantity discounts. Ordering multimode fiber in bulk lets you save even more over our already low prices. In addition, most cables are eligible for free shipping if your order tops a minimum amount.
