Stay ahead of increasing telecommunications application demands and data center space limitations with the LightWave MTP 24-Strand, 10Gb OM3 Multimode Fiber Optic Cable. This cable takes the issue of high fiber-count applications and space restriction, and resolves it with a compact, highly efficient solution that allows you to tackle your workload with a manageable, minimal physical wire space.
MTP® brand MPO-style connectors have revolutionized how business done in the telecommunications and data center networking fields. With time, the demand for larger data management, with network administrators quickly running out of room to meet these requirements using standard connectors. With the MTP brand connector and its ability to accommodate 12 fibers in a single connector, the issue of space has become significantly more manageable.
Using OM3 fiber optics, you are able to transmit data over a 1Gbps link with a 50/125 micron glass fiber over a distance of up to 1000 meters at a wavelength of 850nm, and over a distance of up to 550 meters at 1300nm. For a 10Gbps link, you can transfer data over a distance of up to 300 meters at 850nm.
Each cable is assembled in-house at our Richmond, VA 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 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.
