MTP/MPO CONNECTOR can house anywhere from 6 to 72 fibers, with 12-fiber arrays being the most common. MTP/MPO connector is available in a male version (with pins) or a female version (without pins). The pins ensure that the fronts of the connectors are exactly aligned on contact and that the endfaces of the fibers are not offset. There are guide grooves (keys) on the top side of the MTP/MPO connector, which ensures that the adapter holds the connector with the correct ends aligned with each other. A white dot is additionally marked on one side of the connector to denote where the position 1 is. The orientation of this key also determines the MTP/MPO cable's polarity.
POLARITY MATTERS IN MPO°MPT CABLING LINK
Migration from 10G to 40/100G requires a simple yet robust pathway. And this pathway is centered around MTP/MPO connectivity. To maintain the correct polarity in MTP/MPO systems, the property of the components of MTP/MPO systems should be understood firstly. So, this section begins with a presentation of the basic components needed for MTP/MPO-based cabling system.
BASE 24 POLARITY SOLUTIONTo catch up with the increased demand for higher bandwidth, 24-fiber MTP/MPO cable is introduced to facilitate migration to 100G network. It doubles the density of 12-fiber cabling in the same footprint, which reduces the fiber count, allows for fewer cable pathway, and improving airflow. The polarity maintenance of base-24 MTP/MPO cabling, however, is more complicated. Sanders Networks recommends the Type A (key-up to key-down) MTP/MPO trunk cable. With our Type A and Type AF cassette, no need for A-to-A patch cable any more.
Sanders Networks is very focused on high quality standards. We only sell products that meet the requirements for smooth operation in the data center - data centers or in the tertiary sector. The AQL 0.65 level II sampling plan is used to test the finished product to ensure that the quality of the product meets the specifications.

The inspection process includes insert loss test, return loss test, ferrule end face detection, interchangeability, vibration, tension, high and low temperature cycle. The standard format of the internal test report provides.
CONCLUSIONData centers are at the heart of the tremendous amount of business data needing to be transmitted, processed and stored. Thus fiber optic links are vital for providing the bandwidth and speed needed to transmit these data. Today’s enterprise business are embracing the trend of 40/100G and seeking the most effective method to migrate to higher speed – they leverages MTP/MPO components to satisfy the requirement. The polarity issues of MTP/MPO cabling can be solved by selecting the right types of MTP/MPO cables, MTP/MPO connectors, MTP/MPO cassette and patch cables. FS.COM polarity management solution for base-12 and base-24 MTP/MPO cabling allows data center managers to effectively migrate to 40/100G
