Made in the USAIf you need to manage heavy duty data center applications and space conservation is a factor, choose the MTP-LC, 10Gb Multimode OM3, 48-Strand Fiber Optic Cable to help achieve high-volume data transfer in limited space.

The MTP-LC fan out cable is currently the most widely used cable system for data centers as 10G is the current standard transmission speed. This cable features four MTP brand MPO-style connectors female connectors on one end, which fans out to 48 LC connectors in duplex configuration.

Using 50/125 OM3 multimode fiber optics, this cable allows you to transfer data over a 50/125 micron glass fiber 10Gbps link a distance of up to 300 meters at 850nm.

TAA CompliantThis cable is made in-house at our Richmond, VA facility and is manufactured and terminated for the best possible performance. Every product is individually tested to make sure you receive the highest possible quality and the results of each test are included with the product.

The MTP® - MPO difference

MTP brand connector is an improvement on the MPO style in a few key areas. For example, the MTP brand connector has removable housing, allowing the customer to re-polish the MT ferrule and change the gender of the connector after assembly. Also, the MTP brand connector spring design maximizes ribbon clearance in order to prevent fiber damage.

The MTP brand connector has a metal pin clamp with features that help center the push spring, which:

  • Keeps the spring force centered
  • Eliminates fiber damage from the spring
  • Eliminates lost pins


  • Compact design accommodates high fiber-count, limited space demands
  • Easy connector insertion and removal
