Emergence in demand for 8 and 16 fibre MPO/MTP cables
Technology developments indicate that transmission speeds ranging from 4G to 400G will be based on 2 or 8 fibre connectivity solutions and so the demand for fibre networks that use connectors and cables with 2, 8 or 16 fibres is going to increase. Matching the fibre networking to the equipment will improve link performance, fibre utilisation and reduce rack space requirements.
Benefits of using 8 fibre and 16 fibre cables
100% fibre utilisation on QSFP+ 40G and 56G transmission.
Remove the need for conversion modules.
Reduce link attenuation enabling longer parallel link distances.
Reduce no. of mated MTP® connector pairs in the links.
Cleaner mapping between 8-fibre and duplex fibre channels.
Cleaner connections for blades.
Reduce rack space.
Keeping 8- and 16-fibre networking separate
An offset key on the connector stops connection to MTP-12 or MTP-24 fibre connectors
Complete Connect offer a complete fibre networking solution based on 8- and 16-fibre cables and connectors.
As with all our solutions, Corning® glass and MTP® ELITE® ferrules are used as well as high grade singlemode ferrules (in OM3 and OM4 products) to maximise performance.
