A Closer Look at Plug and Play MPO/MTP Assemblies

With today's 40 and 100 Gig fiber applications using the MPO/MTP interface, overall performance is critical. Unfortunately, not all MPO/MTP assemblies are created equal, and selecting lower-cost versions from unproven sources can compromise performance.

  • Samples tested from 4 different assembly houses and Siemon
  • Tested for end face geometry, visual inspection, cleanliness and transmission performance
  • Astounding results show cheaper assemblies are not worth the risk
