MPO Patch Cords Patch Cable , MefiberOptic.Com manufactures and distributes a wide range of MTP products including Single-mode and Multimode MPO and MTP fiber cable. The MPO fiber cable connector offers up to 12 times the density of standard connectors, providing significant space and cost savings. High density MTP trunk cables can house up to 288 fibers in a single cable.
MPO Patch Cords Patch Cable can be mass terminated in combinations of 4, 8, 12, 24 and 48 fiber ribbon cables and are typically used in high-density backplane and Printed Circuit Board (PCB) applications within data and telecommunications systems.
People use the terms MPO and MTP interchangeably and many customers have asked us to clarify the difference between the two. MPO is a fiber connector type while MTP is a registered trademark of an MPO connector manufactured by US Conec. All MTPs are MPOs but not all MPOs are MTPs. MPO stands for Multi-Fiber Push On.
Multi-fiber push on connectors, or MPOs for short, are fiber connectors comprised of multiple optical fibers. While defined as an array connector having more than 2 fibers, MPO Connectors are typically available with 8, 12 or 24 fibers for common data center and LAN applications. MTP® is an acronym for Multi-fiber Termination Push-on and is the standardized terminating end of a multi-fiber cable that supports for all practical intents and purposes up to 24 fiber strands per connector.
MPO patch cord (Ribbon fan out Fiber patchcord, Ribbon mliti cable fan out) use MTP and MPO multi fiber type connectors, each one of the connector are used with ribbon type fiber optic cables which contain multi fiber in one single jacket, so that MPO Fiber Patch Cord greatly save space and are very convenient to use. Based on single ferrule MT technology, the MPO Fiber Patch Cord assemblies provide up to 72 fiber connections in a single point, reducing the physical space and labor requirement, while providing the same bandwidth capacity of a multi-fiber cable with individual fiber connector terminations per cable.
Typically with MT series like MTP/MPO fiber connectors and with multi fiber ribbon cables, these MPO Fiber Patch Cord features multi fiber connection in the same single core fiber optic patch cord.
