Jan 2016US Conec Ltd.Request Info
HICKORY, N.C. — US Conec Ltd. has announced the MTP-16 multifiber optical connector.
Using the company's MT Elite ferrule technology, the connector hardware is suitable for structured cabling applications supporting parallel or duplex links that require low insertion loss. The connectors can aggregate eight-lane QSFP+/QSFP28 links while directly coupling into emerging 16 × 25-G active devices.
A new keying design, currently being standardized by TIA 604-18 (FOCIS 18) and IEC (61754-7-3), ensures proper mating of the connector without inadvertently mating the 16-fiber connector hardware with standard MPO-compliant hardware.
