Changing the gender and polarity of standard MPO Connectors in the field is risky business. Besides the level of difficulty, changing gender and polarity can lead to damage to the fiber exposed when attempting to replace the connector housing. Obviously, you want to avoid changing these factors, but what about when you have to change them? In order to migrate from a 10G Ethernet environment to a 40G Ethernet environment, you have to change the gender of your MPO Connectors, as 10G has a female horizontal cabling infrastructure, and 40G has a male horizontal cabling infrastructure.
A simpler, less dangerous way of changing the gender of MPO Connectors is essential to your migration from 10G to 40G, and Panduit PanMPO Connectors provide just that. PanMPO Connectors are the only MPO fiber optic connectors that can change polarity and gender in a matter of seconds, making your migration from 10G to 40G efficient and easy. This enables you to maintain compliance with standards without completely replacing your fiber infrastructure.
The features of Panduit PanMPO Connectors include:
- interchangeable housing - enables the user to change the key position on the connector between key up and key down
- can be utilized in any MPO-based infrastructure containing trunk assemblies, interconnect cords and MPO patch cords
- minimizes MPO cord configurations to keep in stock and to keep track of during operations
- prevents installation, adds/move/changes or new turn up delays if an MPO cord, harness or cassette is ordered with the incorrect gender or polarity
Panduit PanMPO Connectors make migration from 10G to 40G simple and stress-free. With Panduit PanMPO Connectors, you can easily change gender and polarity, ensuring that your environment is compliant with standards, safe and fully operational.
