MTP is a result of the cooperation between Corning and Fujikura under the name USConec, and is a further development of the MPO connector but with better strain relief and tougher mechanics. Both are compatible due to similar optical and mechanical interface.
Pre-connected MTP-LC fan-out cables are mounted as an integrated part in the cassettes. Using this kind of cables reduces the cable clutter and improve airflow within the cassettes.
Inside a cassette, the MTP connector of the fan-out cable is plugged into the MTP adapter and the LC connectors into the LC adapters.
Fan-out cable is pre-terminated (with 1 MTP connector and 12/24 LC connectors) and factory tested
Choice of MTP male (with pins) or MTP female (no pins)
Available in single-mode (OS1/2) and in multi-mode (OM3, OM4 and OM5)
Low smoke zero halogen (LSZH)
