MPO/MTP Cable Assembly Solutions From

The increasing demands for high fiber counts and limited cabling space in today’s data centers have driven the evolution of multi-fiber technology. MPO/MTP technology with multi-fiber connectors serves as a practical optical solution to support high network performance in data centers to accommodate current and future requirements. Many MPO/MTP products are available in the telecommunication market, like MPO/MTP fiber cables, MPO/MTP cassettes, and MPO/MTP connectors. This article will introduce MPO/MTP cable assemblies and solutions in data centers.

MPO/MTP System Introduction

The term MTP is a registered trademark of US Conec used to describe their connector. MTP cable assemblies are designed and introduced as a performance version of MPO connectors. MTP does interconnect with the MPO connectors. Each MTP connector contains 12 fibers or 6 duplex channels in a connector that is smaller than most duplex connections in use today. A 72-fiber trunk cable can be terminated with six MTP connectors.

MPO/MTP fibers are manufactured with outstanding optical and mechanical properties, allowing high-density connections between network equipment. When easy insertion and removal of an MPO/MTP fiber is required, just a simple push-pull latching mechanism is used in manufacturing an MPO/MTP patch cord. That is called the Push-Pull tab MPO patch cord. This kind of MPO patch cord with a Push-Pull tab offers maximum accessibility in high-density installations and easy insertion and removal with only one hand.

MPO/MTP Cable Assemblies Features

MTP brand cable assemblies are multi-fiber patch cords suitable for high-density backplane and PCB solutions. There are mainly two configurations for MTP cable assemblies. The most commonly used one is an MTP connector to MTP connector trunk cable that connects an MTP cassette to another MTP cassette. The other one is MTP connectors to LC or another connector.

MTP trunk cable, as a permanent link connecting the MTP modules, is available in 12-144 counts, intended for high-density applications. Using MTP trunk cables, a complete fiber optic backbone can be installed without any field termination.

MTP breakout cables, also known as harness cables, provide connection to equipment or panels that are terminated with LC, ST, and SC connectors. Such assemblies are available pre-wired into patch panels and wall enclosures, able to meet a variety of fiber cabling requirements.

MPO/MTP Cable Assemblies Applications

MPO/MTP cable assemblies are suitable for high-density switches to patching and distribution in data center applications. Their compact design addresses high fiber count applications with small and lightweight cables ideal for applications in which installation space is limited. Besides, the MPO/MTP connector is the standard for delivery of 40G (in its 12 fiber version) and 100G (in either a duplexed 12 fiber cable or 24 fiber ferruled cable) using QSFP transceivers. In 40G applications, take QSFP-40G-SR4-S for instance, this Cisco QSFP-40G-SR4-S QSFP+ transceiver establishes 40G links with the 12 fiber MPO connector assembly.
