MTP/MPO Fiber Patch Cables

Fiber Optic Patch Cords are short-distance fiber optic cables capped with connectors at both ends in order to facilitate the connection between devices within a limited distance. Fiber Patch Cables are commonly used with patch panels, optical switches, and/or telco equipment. There are different types of fiber employed, such as single-mode and multimode variations.

MTP® is a recognizable term that is in reference to a trademarked MPO fiber connector. Defined, the Multiple Fiber Termination Push-on (MTP®) is relative to the high-density fiber optic networking solution belonging to US Conec, Ltd. The Multi-fiber Push-on (MPO) is a specific form of fiber cable manufactured to facilitate networks working within spaces where there is restricted connectivity. In short, 12 to 72 fibers are able to fit into a single high-density fiber optic cable through the use of this technological advancement widely known as MTP®.
