MTP/MPO Trunk Cable

MTP/MPO Trunk Cable

MTP/MPO trunk cableing connects MTP/MPO modules together as a permanent link. They facilitate rapid  deployment of high density backbone cabling in data centers and other high density fiber environments, reducing  network installation or reconfiguration time and cost. Its efficient plug-and-play structure greatly reduces the  initial installation and routine maintenance costs. Pre-terminated trunk cables can also be used with plug and  play modules or MTP/MPO connector panels to achieve multi-level connection. Pre-terminated trunk cable can  also be extended by MTP/MPO panel with plug-and play module. They are used to interconnect module cassettes,  panels or ruggedized MTP/MPO fanouts, spanning MDA, HDA and EDA zones.
