Made in the USAAs the need for reliable fiber optics becomes more and more critical, the LightWave MTP 72-Strand, 10Gb OM3 Multimode Fiber Optic Cable proves to be the best choice in the network room. As the new emerging industry standard, MTP® brand connectors address the need for more bandwidth and throughput where the space for extra cabling isnt necessarily available.

An enhanced version of the MPO-style connector, MTP brand connectors move the design a major step forward, with added features that allow you to get the most out of your telecommunications and data center applications.

Using patented technology, the MTP brand connectors ferrule float lets two mated ferrules to continue physical contact while under and applied load, improving mechanical performance. Additionally, the MTP® connector is available in four variations of strain-relieving boots for different types of applications.

With 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.
