HypaFOX MTP MPO equipment patch cords are used to connect directly to transmission equipment. Containing a flexible outer sheath, they are slimmer than trunk cables and easier to route within a rack. MTP MPO patch cords are generally used to support parallel optical communications and are available as either 12 or 24 fibre configurations. Due to transmission equipment containing male MTP MPO ports, the MTP MPO patch cords contain a female MTP MPO connector at the transmission equipment end to ensure correct mating. The opposite end can be provided with either female or male MTP MPO connectors, depending on the connectivity method.
