Description of MPO connector?

MPO provide reliable high performance interconnects of up to 24 fibers in a small footprint. The MPO connectors utilize the precision molded NTT compatible ferrule which connects four to 24 fibers using bare ribbon or ruggedized ribbon cable.So MTP/MPO connectors are widely used in High-Density And Multi-Fiber Interconnect Applications.

MPO connectors meet IEC 1754-7 and TIA/EIA 604-5 standards.

The difference between MTP connector and MPO connector?

MPO is Multiple-Fibre Push-On connector while MTP connector is simply tunned MPO connector with better optical and mechanical performance. MTP connector is designed by US Conec Ltd.,

What are the advantages of MTP connector?

Removable connector housing – possibility to change the gender of connector even after assembly. Better physical contact – done by special spring design and superior design of guide pins.

Is MTP connector compatible with MPO connector/adapter?

MTP connectors are fully compatible with MPO installations.
