MPO/MTP Conversion Harness Cables
MTP/MPO Conversion Harness Cables
MTP/MPO Conversion Cables Another harness cable type is conversion harness cables, which allow users to convert their existing MPO/MTP backbone cables to an MPO/MTP type which matches their active equipment. Conversion harnesses are a low-loss alternative to conversion modules because they eliminate one mated MPO/MTP pair across the link. Many of today’s legacy infrastructures are built using a Base-12 MPO/MTP backbone design, however experience shows us that this connector is rarely used on higher data rate switches or servers. Currently Base-8 is the preferred connector for 40G (SR4) transceivers and Base-24 is the preferred connector for 100G transceivers (SR10).
