RiteAV - MTP 40Gb 50/125 OM3 Multimode Fiber Optic Cable Plenum (OFNP) 12 Fiber - 6 Meter Male to Female Type BCategory: 40gbe Om3 PlenumMTP -MPO Connections Often used interchangeably, with the difference being MTP connectors featuring higher performance and enhancements (MTP "Multi-fiber Termination Push-on" is a connector made is fully compliant with MPO standards (Multi-fiber Push-on), while offering increased performance and features), MPO or MTP connectors are a multi-fiber solution, offering a higher port density compared to traditional fiber options. The use of MPO / MTP fiber solutions utilizes one cable to hold fibers, making it easy to plug-in and perfect for use in compact server rooms or when simplifying installation is a necessity. MTP / MPO cables can be used with cassettes or connections to active equipment with MPO / MTP interfaces. The ability to hold multiple fibers, coupled by its simplified connect and reconnect mechanism (push-pull) allows easier installation, increased efficiency, and cost benefits compared to running individual fiber cables. MPO / MTP single mode connectors have an angled ferrule, whereas multimode connectors have a flat ferrule. Depending on pin configuration, number of strands and the device used, data transmission can go from 10 / 40 / 100 Gigabits. MTP cables are made using Corning cable and are plenum rated (OFNP) and tested in accordance to the NFPA 262 for in-wall use. Some advantages of using a MTP connector is: Housing is removable (Requires MTP removal tool), Change gender anytime (Requires MTP removal tool), Uses elliptical shaped pin tips to help guidance and reduce hole wear, Features a metal pin clamp to eliminate lost pins, fiber damage. Typical Application-- To install to the back of a Fiber Cassette to run long distances to another Fiber Cassette . Cable Jacket- Aqua, 3mm Round Pin Configuration: OFNP - Optical Fiber Nonconductive Plenum is the designation given by the National Fire Protection Association to interior Fiber optic cables which contain no electrically conductive component, and which are certified for use in plenum applications.
