MPO to LC Breakout Cable

For Data Center Cabling & 40G/100G Network Solutions

MPO cables are high-density fiber optic cables used in data centers and other high-speed network environments.

MPO to 4 duplex LC breakout cable fan out a single 40Gbps connection from a 40GBase-SR4 QSFP+ optical transceiver module to four 10Gbps LC SFP+ optical transceiver modules, while 12 fiber type is used in 10G networks. The MPO to LC breakout cable is also an economical solution for a smaller network environment in which you don’t need complicated equipment, because the MPO cable allows redistribution of various fibers into one round cable for short distance transmission, it offers 8, 12, 24 and up to 144 fibers for these applications. To protect the cable in the harsh environment, armored cable is available.

MPO-LC 4xDuplex 8F Breakout Patch Cable

OM3 & OM4 types MPO-LC breakout cable are very popular in markets. You might see both aqua and magenta colors are used for OM4 cable, it’s just choice by different markets. MPO/MTP breakout cable offers up to 144 fibers, but most common versions are 8, 12 and 24. 8F is usually with 4 LC duplex connectors, because they connect with SFP transceivers, which normally have small LC duplex ports. Each pair of fibers for TX & RX of 10G.
