What is the mpo fiber patch cable?

zhubinyan |

MPO fibre optic patch cable occupies an important position in the increasing optical communication due to its advantages of high core count, small size, high transmission rate, etc. It can satisfy the high-density cabling scheme of data centre.

Now a comprehensive and systematic introduction to the knowledge about MPO.

1、What is MPO?
MPO (Multi-fiber Push On) Fiber Optic Patchcord is composed of connectors and cables, is a high-density fiber optic transmission patchcord. MPO connectors for one of the MT series connectors, is a multi-core multi-channel plug-in connectors, MT series of inserts are used on the insert end of the left and right of the two diameter of 0.7mm guide holes and the guide pins (also known as the PIN pin) for precise connection. precise connection.
MPO fibre optic patch cord products mainly include MPO pre-terminated fibre optic patch cords, MPO branching fibre optic patch cords, and MPO sector fibre.

2、What are the common cores of MPO?
MPO is more common is 12 cores, 16 cores, 24 cores.
12-core MPO fibre optic patch cords are used in 40G network, 24-core MPO fibre optic patch cords are used in 100G network. 16/32-core MPO fibre optic connector is the best solution for low latency and ultra-high speed transmission in 400G network.

The connection between the MPO connectors is accurately aligned by means of PIN pins, and a "click" should be heard to ensure that they are locked to the adapter when docked.

3、MPO three kinds of wire order?
Type A: The cores of the patch cords are arranged in the same position, i.e. 1 at one end corresponds to 1 at the other end, and 12 at one end corresponds to 12 at the other end; the key up corresponds to the key down at both ends.
Type B: Patch cords have opposite core arrangement, i.e. 1 at one end corresponds to 12 at the other end, and 12 at one end corresponds to 1 at the other end, and the key direction is the same at both ends, i.e. key up corresponds to key up, and key down corresponds to key down.
Type C: Type C MPO patch cords have adjacent pairs of cores crossed, i.e., core 1 at one end corresponds to core 2 at the other end, and core12 at one end corresponds to core 11 at the other end, and the key direction is opposite at both ends, i.e., key up corresponds to key down.

4、MPO jumper cable advantages?

(1) Small size, so that the wiring aperture can be increased, thus greatly increasing the wiring density, space saving.

(2) Modular design, plug and play, saving installation time.

(3) According to different configuration requirements, the corresponding structure can be selected to meet different wiring needs.

(4) Excellent optical and mechanical properties, low insertion loss in high-speed network environment.


MPO fiber optic connectors, fiber optic patch cords provide a simple and easy to manage fiber optic cabling solutions, widely used in the need for high-density integrated fiber optic lines FTTH and data centres.
