As the data throughput increases, 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s are more commonplace and now become a trend and hotspot for data-center cabling system, plus the fact that MPO/MTP connector is the up-and-coming standard optical interface for 40G and 100G Ethernet network, so it is predicted that MPO/MTP will eventually replace the standards for fiber optics as known. Even now many big IT companies are tearing out their existing infrastructure and placing MPO/MTP cassettes in their patch panels to route data for thousands of network electronics, they find MPO/MTP cassettes, patch-cords, connectors and adapters an essential backbone to their infrastructure. If you run one 12-fiber MPO/MTP cable from a cassette on one side of the building to one cassette on the other, you can supply data for 12 connections just like that. The high fiber count in one connector creates endless possibilities. Imagining a 1U rack mount patch panel that can supply data to run an entire 288-port switch, it will happen soon with today’s increasing demand for higher through-put, so the needs for. FC, LC, SC, ST, MT-RJ, etc., will all be a thing of the past.
As a cabling solution provider, is now going to be ahead of the game with MPO/MTP cables that are designed for the reliable and quick operations in Data Centers. The obvious benefits of these cables are less space requirements and improved scalability, providing significant space and cost savings. The MPO/MTP cables are generally used for 40GbE and 100GbE network environment, and play a significant part of structured cabling. We offer a wide range of MPO/MTP cable assemblies including Trunk Cables, Harness Cables, patch-cords, loopback modules, Hydra cables and Cassettes (or Patch Panels). All the assemblies are fully compliant with IEC Standards 61754-7 and TIA 604-5, and Telcordia GR-1435-CORE., we also provide customized design such as optional fiber counts, cable types and lengths etc.
MPO/MTP trunk cables serve as a permanent link connecting MPO/MTP modules to each other. The trunk cables are available with 12, 24, 48 and 72 fibers. A 72-fiber trunk cable can be terminated with 6 MPO/MTP connectors and the connectors are manufactured specifically for multi-fiber loose tube or ribbon cable.
MPO/MTP trunk cables are used to interconnect cassettes, panels or ruggedized MPO fan-outs, spanning MDA, HDA and EDA areas, and to facilitate rapid deployment of high density backbone cabling in data centers and other high fiber environments reducing network installation or reconfiguration. They offer the flexibility in case any decision is made to change the connector style in the patch panels, new cassettes can be installed with the new connector style on the cross-connect side of the patch panel without having to change the connector on the cable trunk.
Gigalight provides high density MPO/MTP trunk cables including standard trunk cables and hybrid trunk cables, with up to 288 fibers in a single cable. The MPO/MTP trunk cables use a compact and rugged micro cable structure, according to different colors divided into Single-Mode (SM), Multi-Mode (MM) and 10G MM. The fiber ranges from 12 to 144, MTP polarity options are TIA way is Style A (up), Style B (down) and Style C (up/up). The cable length can be up to 999 feet, and breakout length from 12 to 99 inches.
