MPO Connector and MTP connector

With the rapid development of data centers, cloud computing, cloud storage and other applications gradually penetrated the bandwidth requirements of each industry, network communication also will increase rapidly, while the high speed, high capacity, high-bandwidth often requires more space and higher costs, which exist this long-term contradiction, MTP/MPO fiber optic wiring standard has become the best solution for the current density and high bandwidth. MTP and MPO market today exist two kinds of fiber optic connection system, they are very similar to some extent, mutually compatible, and that they really tell the difference.

MPO connector

MPO (Multi-fiber Pull Off) is Japan's NTT Communications designed the first generation of shrapnel clamping type multi-core optical fiber connector, is the name of several companies now produce a multi-pin connector head. The MTP, by the United States USConec company registered the brand, specifically refers to the production of unique MPO connector type.

What is the MPO connector?

MPO is a "multi-fiber pull off" the abbreviation. This connector ferrule has more than one core, by mechanical means snaps into place.
Now various manufacturers on a market multiple MPO design, different types of connectivity products, its performance and cost are very different. Some of the performance characteristics of the product to make it more prominent, and some MPO connector can be matched with many different brands of products, but some are not, this depends on how close the interworking of these connector design with standard products. MPO connector complete definition, refer to the implementation of IEC-61754-7 and EIA / TIA-604-5 (aka FOCIS 5).

What is a MTP connector?

MTP connector is an innovative design with multiple high performance MPO connector with respect to the average for the MPO connector, MTP fiber optic connector on the optical and mechanical properties have been strengthened. MTP connectors are fully compliant with all MPO connector professional standards, including EIA / TIA-604-5 FOCIS 5 and IEC-61754-7.

MPO connector is consistent with industry standards mutual pairable MTP connector, which means replacing the MPO connector with MTP connector for better performance is possible. Most follow the MPO connector of old design performance is quite limited, it can not provide the same high performance with MTP connector.

Why MTP connector is described as a high performance MPO connector?

Through a specially designed MTP connector performance and availability were improved compared with MPO connectors. This design feature MTP is unique and protected by patents. The main features are as follows:

1, MTP fiber optic connector sleeve frame parts can be easily removed.

MT ferrule design can be reworked and re-grinding in the production of energy to ensure that performance is not lost. Yin and Yang in the field even after assembly flexible to change, ferrule assembly can be over after interference detection.

2, MTP fiber optic connector ferrule float to improve transmission performance when mechanical docking. It allows two connectors under the influence of external forces make matched ferrule to maintain good physical contact.

3, MTP fiber optic connector elliptical guide pin is used in stainless steel, oval docking guide pin can improve the accuracy and reduce the wear of the guide hole, such that the optical fiber connector MTP more durable to maintain high performance transmission.

4, in the MTP fiber optic connector has a metal clip for fixing the push pin ring. Specific features:

Prevent the loss of the guide pin;

Concentrated pressure generated by the spring;

Prevent the spring from touching the fiber friction in the mechanical expansion process caused damage to the optical fiber;

5, MTP fiber optic connector spring design maximizes ribbon clearance 12 core and multi-core optical fiber ribbon applications to prevent damage.

6, MTP fiber optic connector having at least four standard matching parts, can be adapted to different types of cable, more practical, including:

Round cable loose tube structure;

Oval coat of ribbon cable;

Strip bare fiber;

Short tail cuff connector parts, very suitable for use in a small space, reduction of 45% of the volume.
