UnitekFiber as a professional manufacturer in the industry, offers high quality MTP/MPO patch cord specially designed to meet the increasing demand for high-speed and large-capacity optical communication systems. These MTP/MPO patch cords combine the advantages of MTP/MPO fiber connectors and fiber optic cables to provide reliable, high density wiring solutions for data centers. Their MTP/MPO fiber connectors conform to industry standards such as IEC 61754-7, ensuring compatibility and optimal performance.
The Fiber Cores Capacity for the MPO/MTP Fiber Connector
At present, the factory termination assembly of MTP/MPO fiber connector can accommodate 6 to 144 fibers, among which 12 and 24 core MTP/MPO fiber connector are more common. According to IEC-61754-7 and EIA/TIA-604-5 (FOCIS 5) specifications, usually 12 core fibers are arranged in a row, which can support one or more rows of fibers in the same MTP/MPO cable. According to the number of discharge cores in the fiber connector, it is divided into one row (12 cores) and multiple rows (24 cores or more). 40G MTP/MPO patch cord generally use 12-core MTP/MPO multimode ferrules; 100G MTP/MPO patch cord generally use 24-core MTP/MPO ferrules. At present, there are 16 single-row fiber array types in the market, which can be divided into multiple rows to form 32 cores or more. The 16/32 core MTP/MPO fiber connector will become the best solution for low-latency and ultra-high-speed transmission of the next-generation 400G network.
The Difference Between Male and Female Fiber Connectors in MPO/MTP Patch Cord
MTP/MPO fiber connector include optical fibers, sheaths, coupling components, ferrules, pins (PIN pins), dust caps, etc., and the pins are divided into male and female. The male connector has two pins, the female connector does not. The connection between MTP/MPO fiber connectors is precisely aligned through PIN pins, and the two MTP/MPO fiber connectors connected to each other must be one male and one female.
MPO/MTP polarity classification
Type A (straight-through type): The fiber cores at both ends of the MTP/MPO patch cord are arranged in the same position, that is, 1 at one end corresponds to 1 at the other end, and 12 at one end corresponds to 12 at the other end. The orientation of the keys at both ends is opposite, and key up corresponds to key down.
Type B (staggered type): The position of the fiber cores at both ends of the MTP/MPO patch cord is opposite, that is, 1 at one end corresponds to 12 at the other end, and 12 at one end corresponds to 1 at the other end. The direction of the keys at both ends is the same, that is, key up corresponds to key up, and key down corresponds to key down.
Type C (staggered in pairs): The type C MTP/MPO patch cord is a pair of adjacent core positions crossed, that is, core 1 at one end corresponds to 2 at the other end, and core 12 at one end is 11 at the other end. The orientation of the keys at both ends is also opposite, and key up corresponds to key down.
What is MTP Fiber Connector?
MTP fiber connector is "Multi-fiber Termination Push-on", which was developed by US Conec. It has improved attenuation and reflection on the standard MPO fiber connector, and a version with higher overall performance. From the outside, there are few noticeable differences between MTP/MPO fiber connectors. In fact, they are fully compatible and compatible with each other.
MTP/MPO patch cord provide a simple and easy-to-manage fiber optic cabling solution, widely used in FTTH and data centers that require high-density integrated fiber optic lines, and it is likely to become a hot demand product for future 5G data center construction.
