MPO fiber cables and related factors are now widely deployed in high speed fiber optic transmission system. MPO cables really provide great performance during 40G and 100G transmission over both short and long transmission lengths. But there are so many types of MPO components like MPO cables, MPO cassettes, MPO adapters, MPO patch panels, and so on And all of these products are usable in different MPO polarity types. Customers can get confused easily by these MPO products.
In gain, unlike traditional duplex transmission on two fibers or BiDi transmission over a single fiber, the MPO system transmits optical signal over 12, 24 or more fibers at the same time. More fibers and cables are applied in the MPO cabling system. Thus, technicians in a data center or server room are even facing a headache problem which is MPO cable management. This post is to provide the details of a commonly used MPO cabling system-12-fiber MPO cable system for better understanding, selecting and management of MPO products.
