MPO MicroCable Patch Assembly (Single Jacket 3mm OD)


MPO MicroCable Patch assemblies facilitate rapid deployment of high density cabling in data centers or other high fiber density environments reducing network installation or reconfiguration time and cost. They are typically used for patching within MDA zone or interconnect MPO active equipment ports with backbone cabling.

MPO MicroCable Patch assemblies are offered as standard 12 fibers using a compact and rugged 3mm OD Single Jacket MicroCable structure. The compact cables optimizes patch cable-way use and improves the airflow.

MPO MicroCable assemblies are built with highest quality components. MPO low loss Premium versions are offered featuring low insertion loss for demanding high speed networks with critical power budget requirements.
