MTP/MPO Cabling Solution for Data Center High-Density Cabling



     To keep pace with the requirements on the bandwidth, data capacity and transmission rate higher in data centers (shown as the pic), 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s appear. However, it's obvious that double-core optic fiber used for 100M Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet cannot support them anymore, unless particular codes and protocols are adopted. Besides, with the advent of high density cabling system in data center, a matter of dense cabling is also like a hot potato to them. For this issue, Optcom publishes a new solution: MPO/MTP Cablings.

   The MPO/MTP cables, generally used for 40GbE and 100GbE and designed for the reliable and quick operations in data centers, play a significant part of structured cabling. Their obvious benefits are with less space requirements and improved scalability, providing significant space and cost savings. Optcom, as a cabling solution provider, obviously realized these. Therefore, in the MPO/MTP Cabling solution (shown as the pic), Optcom offers a wide range of MPO/MTP cable assemblies including MTP/MPO Trunk Cables, MTP Harness Cables, MTP Patch Cords, MTP Hydra cables and MTP/MPO 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.

1. MPO/MTP Trunk Cables

     Generally speaking, MPO/MTP trunk cables serve as a permanent link connecting MPO/MTP modules. The trunk cables are available with 12, 24, 48 and 72 fibers. A 72-fibers 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 also 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 that 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-connecting side of the patch panel without changing the connector on the cable trunk.

These usual features of MTP trunk cables mentioned above are included in Optcom high density MPO/MTP trunk cables. And in addition of these, Optcom MTP trunk cables are their own features, shown as the below introductions.
