[a] The TIA 568 building wiring standard specifies 160/500 MHz * km multimode fiber.

[b] The international ISO/IEC 11801 building wiring standard specifies 200/500 MHz * km multimode fiber.

[c] The ANSI Fibre Channel specification specifies 500/500 MHz * km 50 micron multimode fiber, and 500/500MHz * km fiber has been proposed for addition to ISO/IEC 11801.
