| High Density MPO MTP Solution for Data Center
MPO / MTP cables
Is a newe patching between patchpanels and network equipment.
MPO / MTP stands for “Multiple-Fibre Push-On/Pull-off”
MPO is Multiple-Fibre Push-On connector. MTP connector, designed by US Conec Ltd., is simply tunned
MPO connector with better optical and mechanical performance.
The purpose of this technology is that you can pull just 1 single cable with for example 12 fibers.
So in stead of patching 12 separate fiber cables you only patch 1 cable with 1 connector.
To have a better understanding of this all I will make you familiar with some MTP terminology:
· MTP Trunks
· MTP cassettes
· MTP fan outs
· Direct Splits (MTP to LC or MTP to SC cables)
The MTP Trunk cable is designs for Data Center Applications.
This cable is a round cable with the outer diameter of 3,0 mm or 4,5 mm (with two jackets on both sides).
The connectors where this cable is terminated on is the so called MTP connector (female)
The MTP cassette is nothing more then a basic case which splits out MTP to SC/LC connectors.
The picture that is showed below is a cassette for 12 SC/LC connectors,
but they are also available for 24 connectors.
MTP fan outs
MTP fanout cables are cables that are multiple cables that are bundeled within the same jacket.
This is also often refered as a Breakout cable.
More can be found about this on
Direct Splits (MTP to LC or MTP to SC cables)
MTP Direct Split cables are cables with the fanout made directly in the MTP connector.
These are designed for high density Data Center applications to plug into MTP casettes
and/or MTP patch panels.
