New MTP-16TM Multi-fiber Optical Connector Supports Next Generation 400G Applications
The MTP® 16 Fiber connector is one of the newest addition to the US Conec MTP® brand MPO product family. This state-of-the-art connector brings simplified use to the MPO format by offering optimal field flexibility and enhanced performance, all while leveraging the proven features and technology of US Conec’s MTP® connectors.

Comprised of the proven US Conec MT Elite® ferrule technology, the MTP-16™ connector hardware is ideal for structured cabling applications supporting parallel or duplex links that require low insertion loss, using the MTP-16™ connectors for high density trunk cables efficiently aggregate 8 lane QSFP+/QSFP28 links while directly coupling into emerging 16x25G active devices.

The MTP-16™ connector family encompasses the 16 fiber MT ferrule, connector hardware, and bulkhead adapters. Utilizing the same external footprint as the existing traditional 12 fiber MT ferrule, the 16 fiber MT Elite® is available in one or two rows of 16 fibers and leverages all the proven features and technology of US Conec’s traditional PPS MT ferrules. The connector hardware offers a unique keying feature as opposed to the centered keying feature on the traditional MPO hardware. This new keying design, currently being standardized by TIA 604-18 (FOCIS 18) and IEC (61754-7-3), ensures proper mating of the MTP-16™ connector without inadvertently mating the 16 fiber connector hardware with standard MPO compliant hardware.The MTP-16™ adapters are available in full or reduced flange mounting and opposed or aligned key orientation.

In today’s High Density Data Center environments managers are taking advantage of the most innovative fiber optic technology to date. The HD8² 3.0mm MTP brand multi-fiber MPO cables accomplish more with less cable clutter.

The MTP brand connector is an improved version of the MPO style connector, offering features that benefit the user to get the best possible connection, including a removable housing for reworking the ferrule or changing the connector gender post-assembly.

Other features such as the patented ferrule float and stainless steel guide pin tips (available on male versions) help offer greater durability and accuracy. With this 16-strand fiber optic cable, you can perform an array of functions at a fraction of the space used by standard connector cables.

Each cable is assembled in-house our local facility, and tested for interferometry and insertion loss, so enjoy the American-made quality and high 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 Gender

Female to Female - MTP/MPO (No Pin) to MTP/MPO (No Pin)

Female to Male - MTP/MPO (No Pin) to MTP/MPO (With Pin)

Male To - - MTP/MPO (With Pin) to MTP/MPO (With Pin)

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.
