OpDAT MTP® Cable assemblies

Thursday, November 25, 2021

METZ CONNECT has already been offering patch cords with MPO/MTP® connectors for several years.

MPO/MTP® connectors are mainly used in data centers at transmission rates of e.g. 40 or 400 GBit/s. They are used to connect distribution technology, e.g. 19" panels, and active components such as servers or switches.

Even at a lower transmission rate of 10 GBit/s, the use of MPO/MTP® cables in combination with duplex cables can offer the advantage of significant cost and space savings.

The fiber optic connector type MPO is a multi-fiber connector according to IEC 61754-7, in which 8, 12 or more fibers are arranged in parallel in a rectangular ferrule ("parallel optics").

METZ CONNECT exclusively uses connectors and couplings from USCONEC, whose modified MPO® variants are known under the trade name MTP®. From the MTP® product family, only connectors with Elite® ferrules are used. These have excellent values with regard to insertion and return loss.

METZ CONNECT has now considerably expanded its portfolio with MPO/MTP® connectors: In addition to patch cables, core fanouts, trunk cables and cable fanouts with up to 96 fibers are now also manufactured. Various cable types such as universal or breakout cables are available as well as different assembly variants, e.g. with pull-in aids or mounting sets.
