MPO 24 Fiber Ferrule Cable Assembly


MPO 24xFibers Ferrule Cable Assembly is a product designed for cable infrastructure which is used or which is due to be upgraded for parallel optics 40/100G protocols like 100GBASE-SR10 or 40GBASE-SR4. Assembly is built using 24xfibers ferrule interface MPO connectors which can be used directly with CFP/CXP 100G transceivers or when used together with Transition Modules/ Cables can provide 100G compatible infrastructure for 40G QSFP+ transceivers.

MPO24xFibers Ferrule Cable Assembly can be used with 24xfibers ferrules MPO to LC module providing 40/100G compatible infrastructure for legacy non-parallel optics 4/8/10/16G Ethernet/ Fiber Channels protocols networks.

Assemblies are offered in main 2 standard variants as the Trunks using double jacket 4.5 mm OD MicroCable structure and as a Patchleads using single jacket 3 mm OD MicroCable structure. Small and compact size of MIcroCable is ideal for high density data center application. Indoor/ Outdoor grade of assemblies are available using traditional loose tube INT/EXT.

MPO multifiber interface facilitates rapid deployment of high density backbone cabling in data centers and other high fiber environments reducing network installation or reconfiguration time and cost.
