Zero Connect is a leading manufacturer in custom cable assemblies with over 22 years of experience in the industry. Below, they share some knowledge on one of their most popular custom products, the MTP/MPO solution.
MTP/MPO patch cords are the connecting cables between distribution racks and equipment racks, such as servers and switches. The compact design of the MTP/MPO connectors allows high-density connections between the network equipment. Zero Connect MTP/MPO assemblies are a cost-effective alternative to time-consuming field termination. With Zero Connect's ability to construct assemblies to specific lengths and configurations, you won't have to waste time with field terminations or finding specialized installers.
One of the more popular patching options is the 40G QSFP+ to SFP+ assembly. This is comprised of a MTP Female to 4 duplex LC breakout harness, allowing the slower speed 10G SFP+ LC ports to be attached to higher speed 40G QSFP+ MTP ports.
Zero Connect offers MPO/MTP assemblies in trunk configurations with MPO/MTP connectors on both ends, as well as harness/breakout configurations with a MPO/MTP on one end, with the other end broken out to LC connectors. Zero Connect offers MPO/MTP assemblies in single mode and multimode. MTP/MPO assemblies are built using reduced diameter fiber cable with multiple 250um 12 fiber sub units, keeping the space requirements to a minimum.
