We all know the MTP/MPO module cassette dominates the high-density cabling environment as a high-density pre-terminated fibre device with deployment flexibility.

Not only provides conversion between MTP/MPO connectors and LC or SC connectors, enabling rapid deployment of high-density networks, but also reduces installation time and costs for optical networks.

MPO/MTP Meaning

MPO Cables: The Standard in Multi-Fiber Connectivity

MPO, standing for Multi-Fiber Push On, is a connector that supports multi-fiber connections in a single interface. It enhances bandwidth and density in cabling systems, adhering to the IEC 61754-7 and TIA-604-5 standards.

MPO connectors typically come with fiber counts of 8, 12, 16, or 24, catering to conventional data center and LAN applications. For even higher-density requirements, such as in large-scale optical switches, fiber counts can extend to 32, 48, 60, and 72.

MTP® Cables: The Evolution of MPO with Enhanced Performance

MTP® is a registered trademark of US Conec and represents an evolution of the MPO connector. Although MTP® connectors are compatible with standard MPO systems, they boast enhancements that improve both mechanical and optical performance.

These upgrades include better physical attributes for increased durability and optimized optical properties for superior data transmission. The MTP® brand is synonymous with high-quality, reliable connections in advanced fiber optic networks.

Key Differences and Similarities

  • Compatibility: Both MTP® and MPO connectors can be used interchangeably, as MTP® is designed to be fully compliant with the MPO standard.
  • Enhancements: MTP® connectors offer improvements over generic MPO connectors, including better mechanical design and optimized fiber alignment, which translates into lower loss and better performance.
  • Applications: MTP® is favored in environments where performance is critical, while MPO is a standard solution for varied high-density fiber applications.

MPO /MTP Cassette Features

In addition to the above mentioned, Fibconet wants to share other features of the MPO/MTP cassette.

Easy installation / time saving: MTP/MPO cassette are pre-terminated products. They use a push-pull mechanism that facilitates cable insertion and removal and also eliminates unpredictable termination faults. It is estimated that MPO/MTP boxes can reduce installation time by up to 75% compared to traditional fibre optic cabling systems.

Easy to maintain and manage: MTP/MPO cassette can adapt to changing cabling environments. When connectors change, only need to replace the cables , while the rest of the network infrastructure remains the same. So MTP/MPO distribution boxes are easier to maintain and manage, and the security risks are lower.

High density: As MTP/MPO connectors can accommodate 12/24 fibres, they can provide 12/24 times the density and can save cabling space while increasing cabling density.

—Cost saving: As mentioned above, MTP/MPO wiring boxes are easy to install. Do not require additional installers to carry out the installation professionally, thus significantly reducing installation costs.

Scalability: The modular design of the MTP/MPO cassette allows for quick connection to devices with various rates such as 10G/40G/100G. It is important for reconfiguration when running and expanding the network.
