An MTP breakout cable assembly is used to convert an MTP (Multi-Fiber Push-On) connector into individual connectors, typically LC (Lucent Connector) or SC (Subscriber Connector) connectors. MTP connectors are commonly used in high-density data center environments for connecting optical fibers, and they can have multiple fibers within a single connector.
A typical MTP connector can have 12, 24, or even more fibers within a single connector housing. However, in certain scenarios, it may be necessary to break out these fibers into separate connections. This is where an MTP breakout cable assembly comes into play.
The MTP breakout cable features an MTP connector on one end and individual connectors (e.g., LC or SC) on the other end. For example, a 12-fiber MTP breakout cable assembly would have an MTP connector on one end and break out into 12 individual LC connectors on the other end. This allows you to connect high-density MTP equipment to equipment that requires individual fiber connections.
MTP breakout cables are particularly useful in data center environments where different networking devices or patch panels might use individual connectors rather than MTP connectors.
Camplex CMX-MTPMM & CMX-MTPSM 12 Strand Breakout Cables are fiber breakout cables with MTP Elite connectors and plenum rated jackets. They run 12 strands in one cable to save space and installation time. Ideal for permanent installations for rack-to-rack connection, MTP chassis mount, fanout boxes, and fanout rack enclosures.
Available in single mode fiber and multimode fiber cable and LC or ST breakout fiber cable connectors.
