All our M1000 patch cords, fanouts and trunks are made from the highest quality components and use MTP® ELITE® 24 fibre UPC connectors, Corning® ClearCurve® 24 core OM3 micro fibre cable and high Grade Low Loss Senko® LC connectors.

100G breakout cables over multimode (OM3 or OM4) fibre offer connectivity between direct connection between a 100G CFP transceiver port (unpinned connector) and SFP+ (x 10) ports and 100G CFP transceiver port to LC patch panels.

Complete Connect M1000 Series cables are compatible with all major transceiver brands as they use the same fibre ferrule (MT ferrule) as used in the transceivers. M1000 Series cables are also compatible with other manufacturer’s cabling such as the Corning Pre-tium EDGE, Systimax 360 or Panduit Quicknet solutions.

Complete Connect are MPO MTP Specialists with 40+ years experience. Learn more About Us.

Compatibility with QSFP+ transceiver modules

  1. All QSFP+ 40GBase-SR4 transceiver modules have ports with male connections (with guide pins).
  2. The MTP cable needs a female connector (no pins)
  3. Transceivers from the leading switch manufacturers such as CISCO, Juniper, Extreme, HP, Dell, Arista and Brocade all use an MT ferrule.
  4. All Complete Connect 40G cables use the MT Elite ferrule within the MTP 12 fibre connector. This provides the best optical connection with all major QSFP+ transceivers. Some MPO connectors wont perform as well.

Useful Information

Compatibility with transceiver modules

All Complete Connect 100G cables use the MTP 24 fibre Elite connector. This provides the best optical connection with all major transceiver brands.

Cleaning MTP cables and 100G transceiver ports

Complete Connect recommend using an IBC Branded MTP cleaning tool for cleaning all MTP cables and CFP2 transceiver ports.

Complete Connect will supply this free of charge on orders of four or more 100G cables

Maximum transmission distances

The IEEE standard states that 100G can be transmitted at the following distances: OM3 less than 100m; OM4 less than 150m.

Testing using Loopback adaptor cables

100G loopback cables are used to test 100G ports and networks. Please click here for more info

Commonly asked 100G question?

If 100G is the simultaneous transmission of ten 10G channels and 10G can be transmitted 300m over OM3, then why can 100G only be transmitted 100m on OM3?

Creating a 100G Network

Complete Connect 100G fibre cabling can upgrade existing 10G traditional cabled networks, 10G MTP / MPO networks, create new 100G networks or enable a simple direct port to port connection.

Using existing 10G MTP cabling and 100G

Complete Connect M310 Series MTP (24) to MTP (12×2) splitter cables enable a 100G connection using two incumbent 12 fibre MTP trunk cables. Typically, this involves the removal of MTP-LC cassette modules and replacing these with MTP coupler plates.

The MTP-LC cassette modules can then be re-used in other areas of the network.

Complete Connect M310 Series cables are compatible with cables from other manufacturers such as Corning Pre-tium EDGE, Systimax 360 or Panduit Quicknet so changing to Complete Connect M Series is straightforward.

100G Split to 10G 40G

Using existing 10G standard fibre cabling and 100G

Complete Connect M310 Series 100G MTP (24) to LC Duplex splitter cables enable a 100G connection between incumbent LC patch panels. Polarity is critical to ensure performance.

100G MTP - LC Fibre Breakout Cable

M1000 Series 100G cabling will create a standalone 100G network. Installed cabling can exactly match the requirement avoiding overspend and expansion is modular so future requirements are easily met.

Installation requires no specialist fibre cabling skills and is quick and error free. The polarity of the network is easily managed and the network can be installed at a convenient time.
