MPO to LC Breakout Cables


MTP Cables with FiberShield

The MPO to LC breakout cable allows the redistribution of various optical fibers to individual devices without additional networking equipment. OptoSpan MPO-LC breakout cables reduce the overall cost and setup time for complex high density networking environments.  With additional protective jacketing or fire-resistant materials, this line of fiber optic cables simplifies short range data transmission even in harsh working environments.

OptoSpan’s 12 and 24 fiber MPO 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 MPO cables.

Available in standard jacketing with 8 or up to 144 individual fibers, the MPO-LC breakout cable eliminates the need for more complex Fiber Patch Panels in a relatively short range. Offered in lengths from 1m up to 150m, these breakout cables are the most economical solution for smaller networking environments which may not require complex and expensive equipment.

MPO-LC breakout cable assemblies are most often used to reduce the amount of additional networking hardware within short distances. Their ability to redistribute multiple fibers from a single source to various devices allows for one cable assembly to eliminate the necessity for expensive networking equipment therefore reducing cost, setup time and complexity of fiber networks.

Alternative protection such as the SteelPatch Armored jacket is available to increase the durability of the MPO-LC breakout cable. Composed of two protective layers consisting of a steel braid resting on top of a Kevlar tube, this protective jacketing prevents against accidental or animal damages which may occur in the field.

All listed MPO 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.

Availability of each standard OptoSpan MPO breakout cable assembly is conveniently listed below.  Please contact our support team in order to create specialized cable assemblies in order to suit your unique networking requirements.  Other OptoSpan MPO Fiber Cables include 8-144 Fiber MPO Cables, Plenum MPO Patch Cords, and Plenum MPO to LC Breakout Cables.
