MPO fiber jumpers, with their advantages of high fiber count, small size, and high transmission rate, are increasingly important in optical communications and can meet the high-density cabling requirements of data centers. Let's comprehensively introduce some knowledge about the MPO jumper.
An MPO fiber jumper is a high-density optical fiber transmission jumper composed of a connector and an optical cable. The MPO connector is one of the MT series connectors and is a plug-and-play connector with multiple channels. The MT series plug pins precisely connect with the pinholes and guide pins (also called PINs) with a diameter of 0.7 mm on the plug end face.
MPO fiber jumper products mainly include MPO pre-terminated fiber jumpers, MPO branch fiber jumpers, and MPO fan-out cables.
MPO jumpers are usually available in 12, 16, and 24 fibers.
The 12-fiber MPO fiber jumper is used in 40G networks, while the 24-fiber MPO jumper is used in 100G networks. The 16/32-fiber MPO fiber connector is the best solution for 400G networks with low latency and ultra-high-speed transmission.
The MPO fiber connector includes optical fiber, sheath, coupling components, metal rings, pins (PINs), dust caps, etc.
The male end has two PINs, while the female end does not.
The connection between MPO connectors is accurately aligned by PINs. When docking, you should hear a "click" to ensure that it locks into the adapter.
Type A: The fiber cores on both ends of the jumper are in the same position. For example, fiber 1 on one end corresponds to fiber 1 on the other end, and fiber 12 on one end corresponds to fiber 12 on the other end. The keys on both ends are in opposite directions, with key up corresponding to key down.
Type B: The fiber cores on both ends of the jumper are in opposite positions. For example, fiber 1 on one end corresponds to fiber 12 on the other end, and fiber 12 on one end corresponds to fiber 1 on the other end. The keys on both ends are in the same direction, with both key up or both key down.
Type C: The C-type MPO jumper has adjacent fiber cores that are in a cross position. For example, fiber 1 on one end corresponds to fiber 2 on the other end, and fiber 12 on one end corresponds to fiber 11 on the other end. The keys on both ends are in opposite directions, with key up corresponding to key down.
Small size allows for larger cabling apertures, greatly improving cabling density and saving space.
Modular design allows for plug-and-play, saving installation time.
Appropriate structures can be selected to meet different cabling requirements.
Has excellent optical and mechanical properties, with low insertion loss in high-speed network environments.
MPO fiber connectors and fiber jumpers provide a simple and easy-to-manage optical fiber cabling solution that is widely used in FTTH and data centers for high-density integrated optical fiber lines.
