Q: Can I use 62.5 micron glass for 10 gigabit Ethernet?

A: Technically, yes. However, 62.5 optical glass was designed to accommodate LEDs used in slower applications. A faster application, like 10 gigabit Ethernet uses Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) for transmitting light. Maximum distance for 10 gigabit Ethernet on 62.5 optical glass is 33 meters.
