When you're designing, testing, or troubleshooting a MPO-based system in either a 10G or 40G environment, you're going to have to deal with polarity and gender. Especially when you intend on upgrading from a 10G environment, that has a female cabling infrastructure, to a 40G environment, that has a male cabling infrastructure, in the future. Help to make your cabling infrastructure migration easy with a gender and polarity solution, the PanMPOTM Connector. Solve the gender, polarity, testing and standards compliancy questions that surround the MPO cabling infrastructure by removing the operational risks involved with changing the gender or polarity of the existing MPO connectivity solution.
The PanMPO has an interchangeable housing that enables the user to change the key position on the connector between key up and key down. With this functionality and depending upon the orientation of the connector on the other end of the cable, this feature can make the cordage either a Method A or Method B MPO cord in accordance with ANSI/TIA-568-C.1-7. With Panduit’s PanMPO™ Connector, you can change the polarity and gender of the fiber optic connector in the field, making your 10G to 40G Ethernet migration quick, easy and cost-effective.
Where can I use PanMPO?
The PanMPO can be utilized in any MPO-based infrastructure containing trunk assemblies, interconnect cords, and MPO patch cords. It will minimize MPO cord configurations to keep in stock and to keep track of during operations. It will also prevent installation, adds/move/changes or new turn up delays if an MPO cord, harness or cassette is ordered with the incorrect gender or polarity.
