There has been a dramatic acceleration in the evolution of fiber optics in recent years, in order to accommodate the increasingly high bandwidth demands that data centers and telecommunications companies face. As a result, work space availability has become a growing problem for these applications. The LightWave 12-Fiber Singlemode OS2 MTP/MPO Fiber Optic Cable is the perfect way to meet bandwidth challenges head-on, while reclaiming precious working space.
MTP brand connectors are marked improvement over the MPO connector style upon which they are built. This is thanks to a significant number of enhancements like ferrule float, removable housing and patented pin tips, all of which help to give you best possible connectivity accuracy and quality.
With Singlemode OS2 fiber optics, experience data transmissions over a 1Gbps link with a 9/125 micron glass fiber over a distance of up to 10,000 meters at a wavelength of 1310nm. For a 10Gbps link, you can transfer data over a distance of up to 5,000 meters at 1310nm, and 30,000 meters at 1550nm.
Each cable is assembled in-house at our local facility, and tested for interferometry and insertion loss, all in an effort to bring you the highest possible American-made quality and performance that LightWave cables provide.
LightWave brand MTP Cables are fully compliant with the guidelines of the Trade Agreements Act (TAA), and are approved for United States Government use.
Choose Your Polarity
Type A - Straight: Straight-through polarity is typically for connecting patch panels. They are wired in a mirrored configuration, going from Pin 1 on one connector end to Pin 1 on the opposite end, etc.
Type B - Rollover: Rollover polarity is used primarily for connecting to switches and transceivers in 40Gb applications. In a 12-strand rollover polarity, the cable is wired from Pin 1 on one connector end to Pin 12 on the opposite end. Then 2 to 11, and so forth.
Type C - Flipped: Pair-Flipped polarity is the most commonly used polarity type for this cable, and typically used in cassette-to-cassette applications. Pin 1 on one end goes to Pin 2 on the opposite end, and 2 to 1, 3 to 4, 4 to 3, and so on. This is the default polarity option, but you can select your desired polarity from our drop-down menu above.
