  2G 4G 8G 16G
OM1 (shortwave) 150m 70m 21m 15m
OM2 (shortwave) 300m 150m 50m 35m
OM3 (shortwave) 500m 380m 150m 100m
OM4 (shortwave) - - 190m 125m
OS1 (longwave) *10km+ *10km+ *10km+ *10km+

 

* Higher distance longwave transceivers are available at higher wavelengths.

Additional Information

  • Using a combination of longwave and shortwave on a link is not supported.
  • Patch panels may decrease the possible distance based on power budget limits
  • See TR-3552 for more information
