MTP Elite to LC/SC Breakout Cables

In order to reduce the complexity of multi-fiber installations, the MPO connector has long been the choice when implementing high density fiber networks.  OptoSpan has opted to implement a high performing alternative, the MTP Elite connector by U.S. Conec. The improvements incorporated into the MTP Elite connector allows for less accidental damage and less signal loss when connecting networking devices.

OptoSpan’s 12 and 24 fiber MTP Elite cables feature a new and exclusive FiberShield design, comprising a stronger 4.5mm cable structure with an additional layer of Kevlar and 3x the protective jacket.  This makes FiberShield cables 5x stronger than ordinary 3.0 mm MTP Elite cables.

Each of the MTP Elite breakout cables provided by OptoSpan utilizes the following mechanical improvements: a floating ferrule in order to maintain a secure connection, rounded metal pins to prevent damage to mating adapters, internal recessed metal pin clamp to prevent pin breakage, and an oval shaped internal spring to avoid fiber damage.  In addition to these design improvements, the MTP Elite connector remains completely compatible with any MPO cable or device on the market.

OptoSpan breakout cable assemblies are best utilized to reduce the amount of additional networking hardware within short distances. Their ability to distribute multiple individual fibers from an individual source to various devices allows for a single cable assembly to eliminate the necessity for complex networking equipment therefore reducing cost, setup time and complexity of fiber networks.


MTP Cables with FiberShield

In addition to the aforementioned mechanical improvements, OptoSpan is committed to using the entire MTP Elite connector assembly.  Other competitors have chosen to unethically utilize only the MTP Elite connector housing and replacing the most crucial component, the floating ferrule which is responsible for maintaining the physical connection with a standard ferrule. Only complete and genuine MTP Elite components sourced directly from U.S. Conec have been incorporated in the manufacturing of every OptoSpan provided MTP Elite assembly.

In order to accommodate various networking environments, all listed MTP Elite breakout cable assemblies may be altered as per customer specifications, such alterations may include but are not limited to polarity, key orientations, or length of fiber assembly. While availability of each standard OptoSpan MTP Elite breakout cable assembly is conveniently listed below, please contact our support team in order to create specialized cable assemblies that will suit your unique networking requirements.  Other OptoSpan MTP Elite Fiber Cables include 8-144 Fiber MTP Elite Fiber Cables, Plenum MTP Elite Fiber Cables, and Plenum MTP Elite to LC/SC Breakout Cables.
