GEZHI Photonics manufactures data center grade fiber optic MPO patch cords. The MPO connector uses a spring loaded sliding mechanism allowing the fiber patch cord to latch onto adapters providing a secure and reliable connection for network cabling in enterprise data centers, backbone, colocation facilities, server farms, cloud storage networks, and telecommunication rooms. Each assembly is 100% factory tested to meet IEC 61753-1 standard.
1. Custom Fiber Count
used for 40G/100G QSFP+/QSFP28 direct connection.
used for 10G/40G/100G high-denisty structural fiber cabling.
2. Custom Polarity
To properly send data over fiber cable, a link’s transmit signal (Tx) at one end of the cable must match the corresponding receiver (Rx) at the other end. And the role of polarity, which defines the direction that the signal travels, is to make sure that this correspondence is maintained. Fiber polarity is one area that seems to cause a lot of confusion in our industry – especially when it comes to multifiber MPO solutions used in parallel optic applications.
MPO connectors also include a key on the top side of the connector and a white dot on the side to indicate the location of Position 1. The orientation of the key is critical when it comes to polarity.
There are also three different types of MPO cables – Type A, Type B and Type C as below pictures:
3. Custom Connectors
The MPO interfaces on active equipment are male (with pins), and to avoid damage to the transceiver, MPO patch cords should be female (without pins).
Male (with pins)
The male connector is mated to the female side for adapters, cassettes or panels connection.
Female (without pins)
The female connector can be directly connected to transceivers or other male
