MPO/MTP Fiber Optic Breakout Cables

Each MTP/MPO Breakout Cable is available with 8 to 144 fibers and are most commonly used to assist in upgrading existing 10G networks to higher performing 40G and 100G rates. Higher performing options are available and include the standard MTP/MPO. Each MTP/MPO fiber cable is able to create less insertion loss, thereby preserving the integrity of each connection and delivering much performance than traditional MPO fiber cables.

Every 8, 12 and 24 fiber MTP/MPO Breakout Cable feature new and exclusive new technology. This new advancement adds up to 3x the amount of PVC and DuPont Kevlar, resulting in a 4.5mm thick cable 5x stronger than standard 3.0mm jacketing. This is most useful during installation runs; the additional protective material reduces the possibility of breakages and ensures each associated network is up and running in the absolute shortest time.

MTP/MPO Fiber Cables with a higher density are essentially combinations of the above mentioned fibers. For example, a 48 fiber MPO cable is available in the following standard configurations; a set of two 24 fiber connectors or a set of four 12 fiber connectors. This allows high density cables to be compatible with existing and future hardware while also providing a pathway for future upgrades once installed. Custom configurations are available upon request and may include cable length, fiber count, and permutations of fibers.

Karono MPO/MTP fanout/breakout cables are the ideal connection to patch panels and data distribution routing. They can be made with both 8 fiber MPO/MTP connectors and 12 Fiber MPO/MTP connectors. A variety of options are available and include MPO/MTP to LC, SC, ST, and FC fiber optic patch cables…

  • 8 Fibers – 8 Fiber MPO Breakout Cables are most commonly used in converting existing 10G networks to higher performing 40G and 100G speeds. For example, a QSFP+ transceiver may be configured to accept four separate 10G signals from SFP+ transceivers. This method extends the life of established cabling infrastructure, reduces overall cost, and maintains setup time to an absolute minimum. Additional applications include interconnecting existing fiber panels in order to consolidate fibers for migration to higher communication rates.
  • 12 Fibers – 12 Fiber MPO Breakout Cables are most commonly used to consolidate the amount of duplex LC cables, thereby reducing cost and eliminating unnecessary clutter. For example, as an alternative option to installing 6 duplex LC cables, a networking administrator is able to run a single MPO trunk assembly directly from multiple SFP+ transceivers without experiencing large amounts of insertion loss due to connecting a dozen connectors. Alternative applications include aiding in the migration from 10G to 40G transmission rates, for example a QSFP+ to 4x SFP+ solution.
  • 24 Fibers – 24 Fiber MPO Breakout Cables are often used in the aggregation of 10x10GBASE SFP+ to 1 x100GBASE-SR4 rates. MPO connectors are also capable of transferring up to three individual 40G (40GBASE-SR4) links when connected to properly configured transceivers. Alternative applications include the consolidation of individualized fibers strands to a centralized location without the requirement of conversion modules, such as fiber cassettes.
