Recording to the rapid development of data centers, cloud computing, cloud storage, etc, they have gradually been applied to various industries. Bandwidth requirements of network communications have also increased rapidly. The MTP/MPO optical fiber wiring standard has become the best for high density and high bandwidth solution.
What is the difference between MTP and MPO optical fiber?
MPO optical fiber cable is composed of multi-core optical cable and corresponding 4/8/12/24/48 core high-density MPO. This product can provide male or female connectors, and can choose various specifications of 4-48 core single-mode and multi-mode fiber optic cables. At present, the 12-core MPO connector is the most used. The compact design of the MPO connector makes the MPO jumper more cores and small in size. MPO patch cords are widely used in the environment where high-density integrated optical fiber lines are required in the wiring process like FTTX and 40/100GSFP, SFP+ and other transceiver modules or internal and external connection applications of equipment. MPO commonly uses 8-12-24 cores
MTP optical fiber is a high-performance MPO connector with multiple innovative designs. Compared with the general MPO connector, MTP optical fiber connector has been enhanced in optical and mechanical properties. MTP connectors fully comply with all professional standards of MPO connectors, including EIA/TIA-604-5 FOCIS 5 and IEC-61754-7
Both MTP and MPO optical fiber connectors conform to the international standard "IEC-61754-7" and the American standard "TIA-604-5 (FOCIS5)". Interchangeability is considered in the structural design. Even if the appearance is different, MTP and MPO connectors in use can be interconnected. Note that male and female connectors must be connected.
The floating ferrule of the MTP optical fiber connector can improve the transmission performance during mechanical docking. The two connectors can be allowed to maintain good physical contact with the mating ferrules under the influence of external force.
