Brief Introduction

MPO/MTP stands for “Multiple-Fiber Push-On/Pull-off”. The purpose of MPO / MTP technology is that you can pull just 1 single cable with 8(for example) fibers. So instead of patching 8 separate fiber cables, you only need patch 1 cable with 1 connector. MPO/MTP Fiber cable is used in various applications for all networking and device needs like 100 Gigabit modules. 

MTP/MPO are usually used in ribbon fiber optic patch cords or ribbon fan-out multi fiber assemblies. Typical MTP/MPO fiber optic patch cord assemblies like MTP/MPO to 8 LC, MTP/MPO to 12 MT-RJ, etc. MTP/MPO fiber optic patch cords are also available by single mode and multimode, like PC and APC Polish. 

MTP fiber optic patch cable is with the MTP fiber optic connectors which are upgrade version of the former MPO. MTP is with better mechanical and optic fiber performance compared with MPO. Both the MTP and MPO series cables are multi fiber connectors. There are many fiber optic channels in each single connector. Because of such multi fiber feature, these connectors need to use with multi fiber cables, especially the ribbon multi fiber optic cables. 

MTP and MPO fiber optic cables are available in Female to female or a male to male and male to female configurations. The male version has MTP pins. These can be made with 12 fiber MTP connectors, 24 Fiber MTP connectors, 48 Fiber MTP connector variations. We use MTP fiber optic connectors for all of our MTP and MPO terminations so that the highest performance is accomplished.  Many  additional  options  and  combinations  are  available.  All  multi  fiber optic cables are customizable.

To have a better understanding of MPO/MTP, here introduce you some MPO/MTP terminology:

● MPO/MTP Fiber Patch Cable

Takfly MPO/MTP to MPO/MTP Patch Cable. This cable is a round cable with the outer diameter of 3,0 mm or 4,5 mm (with two jackets on both sides).It is a product designed for data center cable infrastructure, especially designed for 40G/100G network.


● MPO/MTP Fiber Optic Cassette

Takly MPO/MTP fiber optic cassettes is mainly used to divide the 12 or 24 fibers MPO/MTP connector of the pre-assembled terminal end to the simplex or duplex standard connector. By using the simplex or duplex patchcord, the output of the module can be directly connected with the equipments, frame or the client’s end.


● About MPO/MTP Fanout Cable

Takfly MPO/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.


● MPO MTP Cassette Rack Mount patch panel

Takfly MPO/MTP Fiber Optic Patch Panel is used for trunk cable connection and distribution cable management in distribution area of MDA, IDA or HDA data centers. It could be installed in 19 inch racks and cabinets. It could accommodate MPO/MTP cassette modules or MPO/MTP adapter panels.
