Made in the USATackle the ever-growing need for more data bandwidth, transfer speeds and work space with the LightWave MTP 48-Strand, 10Gb OM3 Multimode Fiber Optic Cable. As the MTP® brand connector becomes the standard, more and more data-centric telecommunications and electronics operations are upgrading their existing, outdated infrastructure to meet requirements for higher throughput.

With the MTP brand connector, you get more features and flexibility over generic MPO-style connectors, which gives you more control to optimize the performance of your fiber optic cable. One of these advantages is removable house, which allows you to re-polish and re-work the MT ferrule for the best possible accuracy. Another benefit lies in the MTP brand connectors spring design, which maximizes ribbon clearance for multifiber ribbon applications, preventing fiber damage.

Using OM3 fiber optics, you can 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.

TAA CompliantEach cable is assembled in the USA, and tested for interferometry and insertion loss, so you can 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.
