Why are MTP/MPO Cables Becoming Famous?

Generally, The increase in fiber volume and bandwidth, coupled with the restrictions of space within data centers ignited the growth of MTP/MPO cable assemblies. Horrifically, its outstanding high performance  has resulted in its wide adoption, not just by fibre cabling manufacturers, but also by switch, server and storage manufacturers.Tarluz MTP/MPO trunk cable adopts selected fiber cable and MTP/MPO components, with low insertion loss, high return loss, fully meet the requirement of high speed data network.

Basically, Connecting to equipment with MTP connectors is best done using optical fibre cables with MTP connectors, although other MPO cables are likely to work but may not offer the same performance. MTP/MPO connectors and cables are the central components of a 40G parallel optical link. This connection decides whether the insertion loss exceeds the attenuation budget and whether the return loss is high enough. In the end, the desired bandwidth can only be reached if all components in a parallel optical link satisfy the highest requirements.

The most common fibre counts are 12 and 24 currently.fibre versions are currently used to direct connect into 40G and 100G transceivers and also used in high density fibre distribution areas. Higher fibre versions are also available (48, 72 fibre) but their use and deployment is currently limited. The number of network connections in data centers is rising rapidly. Traditional fiber cables can make the data center crammed and difficult to manage. To solve this problem, data centers have to achieve ultra-high density in cabling to accommodate all of the cabling required. The MTP/MPO cables, which bring together 8, 12 or 24 fibers in a single interface have been proven to be a practical solution. Incorporating to meet the 40GBASE-SR4 and 100GBASE-SR10 standard, The MTP/MPO multi-fiber connector of MTP/MPO cables is about the same size as a SC connector but can accommodate 8, 12 or 24 fibers, thus offering savings in circuit card and rack space.
Conclusively, MTP/MPO interface where developed to provide a multi fibre connectivity in one connector to support higher bandwidth and higher density applications.  48 to 72 are possible but with limited applications.  The next format due will be 16 & 32 fibre required for 400Gb applications other connectors such as LC may also be found in some kinds of MTP/MPO cables. The fiber cables used are generally OM3 and OM4, which are laser optimized multi-mode optical fibers. It is important to have an overall understanding of MTP/MPO connectors (known as multi-fiber push-on and also as multi-path push-on).
Note:
The MTP connector is one type of MPO connector. It is a brand owned by US Conec and used by most active equipment manufacturers and cabling companies.
