Difference between OM4 and OM4+?

What is the difference between these fiber types? How can you tell them apart?

    With the increasing demand for 40GbE and 100GbE, more data centers are choosing OM4+ performance for better bandwidth and link distances. Leviton’s new OM4+ Premium Violet System offers the best chance to future-proof data center cabling infrastructure, with the ability to transmit 40/100GbE signals out to an unprecedented 300 meters when using standard 40GBASE-SR4 or 100GBASE-SR10 transceivers. We have color-coded our OM4+ system components violet, in order to distinguish OM4+ from OM4 and OM3, or other legacy installations.
