  • Connection from a 100G MTP trunk cable to a CFP transceiver port (typically pinned and unpinned connectors)
Components

All patch cords are made from the highest quality components and use

  • MTP® ELITE® 24 fibre UPC connectors
  • Corning® ClearCurve® 24 core OM3 or OM4 micro fibre cable
Compatibility
  • All CFP transceivers
  • Other fibre cabling brands

All 100G trunk cables are made to order.

Compatibility with transceiver modules
  1. All CFP 100GBase-SR10 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 24 fibre ferrule.
  4. All Complete Connect 100G cables use the MT Elite 24 fibre ferrule within the MTP connector. This provides the best optical connection with all major CFP transceivers. Some MPO connectors wont perform as well.
Cleaning MTP cables and transceiver ports
  1. Complete Connect recommend using an IBC Branded MTP cleaning tool for cleaning all MTP cables and CFP transceiver ports.
  2. Complete Connect will supply this free of charge on orders of four or more 100G cables
Maximum transmission distances
  1. 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 fibre cable network MPO MTP

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.
