MTP stands for multi-fiber termination push-on connector and is designed by US Conec and built around the MT ferrule. MTP fiber patch cable takes its name from the MTP connector, which allows high-density connections between network equipment in telecommunication rooms. The following text will thoroughly cover types, advantages and applications of MTP fiber patch cords, and solution provided by fiber-mart.com.
Types of MTP Fiber Patch Cords
There are different types of MTP fiber patch cords based on various criteria. According to the core of the fiber, MTP fiber patch cords are categorized into MTP single mode fiber patch cords and MTP multi-mode fiber patch cords. According to the connectors on both ends, there are mainly two configurations for MTP fiber patch cables. One is the MTP connector to MTP connector, which is often called MTP trunk cable. The other is MTP connector to standard LC/FC/SC/ST/MTRJ connectors (generally MTP to LC), which is often called the MTP harness cable, or MTP fan-out cable. The picture shows a MTP trunk cable and a MTP harness cable.
Advantages of MTP Fiber Patch Cords
The MTP fiber system is a truly innovative group of products which moves fiber optic networks into the new millennium. MTP connector, as a kind of multi-fiber connector, is most commonly used for 12 or 24 fibers. It has about the same size of a SC connector and provides up to 12 or 24 times the density, thereby offering savings in circuit card and rack space. Using MTP trunk cables, a complete fiber optic backbone can be installed without any field termination being required. Moreover, MTP connector is designed as a high-performance version of the multi-fiber push on (MPO) and will interconnect with MPO connectors, so it is compatible with VZ TPR.9431, IEC-61754-7 and EIA/TIA-604-5. It uses a simple push-pull latching mechanism for easy and intuitive insertion and removal.
MTP jumpers utilizes precision ferrules, precise housing dimension and metal guide pins to ensure fiber positioning when mating and give excellent performance. And the easy installation of them saves time and money. They can optimize network performance and maximize lifespan. MTP multi-fiber jumpers deliver the performance and reliability needed in today’s demanding high-speed broadband and data networks. They are designed to cater for up-scaling needs and future technologies growth.
Applications of MTP Fiber Patch Cords
The MTP fiber patch cord is the choice for a wide variety of applications. MTP fiber patch cords can be used for backbones, disaster recovery, building fiber optic distribution, quick setup of new wiring hubs, warehouses, direct termination of ribbon cables, repair of plug and play universal system solutions, and parallel optical interconnects between servers.
Besides these general applications above, MTP trunk cable and MTP harness cable, two commonly used MTP fiber patch cords, have their respective special uses. MTP trunk cables are available in 12-144 count. These high count MTP assemblies are ideal for backbone and data center applications that require a high fiber count in a limited space. MTP fan-out assemblies provide connection to equipment or panels that are terminated with ST, SC, FDDI, or ESCON connectors and meet a variety of fiber cabling requirements. Such assemblies are pre-wired available for patch panels and wall enclosures.
