The MPOptimate system is a pre-terminated fibre-optic cabling system that offers a high degree of flexibility for data centres and a future-proofed migration path to 40 and 100Gbit/s applications.

The MPOptimate fibre-optic cabling system is aimed at data-centre owners that are considering the implementation of a structured cabling in accordance with ISO/IEC, EN or TIA standards, and that are looking for the most flexible pre-terminated MPO solution.

With improved optical parameters, the system allows for trends such as virtualisation and switch consolidation by super-switches, as well as the higher speeds of future systems.

To achieve these requirements, Tyco Electronics has improved the overall production process of this class of fibre-optic system.

As a result, key performance parameters are an insertion loss of 0.35dB maximum per cassette and a return loss of more than 35dB for the LC connector and 28dB for the MPO connector.

Both values are key issues that allow more components in a channel: something that is necessary in new data-centre designs as well as future 40 and 100Gbit/s systems.

MPOptimate assemblies are pre-terminated and factory tested, and the design allows different data-centre designs for channels with two to six re-usable modular cassettes.

The system fully supports all optical-fibre applications within the Ethernet range.

The combination of lower loss and higher return loss allows for multiple connections between transmission equipment, resulting in the joint benefits of a lower space requirement and a much better scalability.

The high-density cabling saves pathway space with improved airflow compared with traditional cable bundles, while the latest MPO technology provides lower power consumption than common fibre systems.

The fibre-optic cabling system is fully compliant with TIA/EI942, ISO/IEC 24764 and EN 50173-5, which are specific data-centre standards.
