What is MT Ferrule

MT ferrule is a type of ferrule used in high-density optical fiber connectors, such as MPO connector (Multi-fiber Push On) and MTP (Multifiber Termination Push-on). The MT ferrule is a square component(normally 6.4×2.5mm) that holds and aligns multiple fibers in a compact form factor. It provides improved optical performance by precisely aligning the fibers and minimizing the loss of light between them.

MT ferrule is typically made of Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) and can be terminated with various connectors and MPO cables.

The MT ferrule is a key component in high-density fiber optic connectivity and is commonly used in data centers, telecommunications networks, and other high-bandwidth applications. The MT ferrule provides a cost-effective solution for high-density fiber optic connectivity, enabling higher fiber count and increased data transmission capacity. The use of MT ferrules helps reduce the amount of physical space needed for fiber optic cabling, making it ideal for applications with limited space.
