MTP Link Performance: Higher Fiber Count vs. Lower Fiber Count

With the pre-terminated plug & play benefits and ease of scalability from 10-40-100G, MPO/MTP connectors are rapidly becoming the norm of switch-switch connections. In the previous post “Introduction to MPO Connector”, I have talked about two types of MPO connectors—12 fiber MPO connector and 24 fiber MPO connector. And both the two MPO/MTP cable types […]

24-Fiber Trunk Cabling – A Better Solution for 10-40-100G Migration

In the data centers, tremendous amount of business data needs to be transmitted, processed and stored. Fiber optic links are vital for providing the bandwidth and speed needed to transmit huge amounts of data to and from a large number of sources. Transmission speeds at core switches are increasing and backbone infrastructures are experiencing a […]

12-Fiber or 24-Fiber MTP/MPO Cabling: Which Is Better for 40G/100G Network?

Data centers regularly undertake their great migration to ever higher speed networks. With 10G commonly used in larger enterprises, migration from 10G to 40G to 100G is underway to meet the demands for greater bandwidth. Is your network cabling optimized for this inevitable growth? Creating a simple, cost-effective migration to support 40G/100G network needs is […]
