MPO/MTP connectors provide an another alternative to LC and SC connectors, which have widely been applied to high-density applications. MPO connectors and MTP connectors are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but sometimes people would confuse differences between the MPO fiber connector and the MTP fiber connector. This article would touch the basics of MPO and MTP fiber connector, the differences between them as well as the cleaning recommendation for them.
MPO is short for “multi-fiber push on”, which is defined by IEC-61754-7 (common standard) and the U.S. TIA-604-5 Standard. Mechanical transfer (MT) ferrule technology lies at the heart of the MPO connector. MPO connectors are designed for 4-, 8-, 12-, 24-, 36-, 48-, 96-, 144 multi-fiber ribbon applications. MPO connectors can be divided as female-female, male-male and female-male connectors. The male connector has metal guide pins to ensure fiber alignment when mating while female connector has no pins. Nowadays, 12 fiber MPO connector and 24 fiber MPO connector have been broadly deployed into 40G and 100G cabling.MTP and MPO is literally different but they have the same meaning. MTP stands for “Multi-fiber Termination Push-on” connector, which is a registered trademark of US Conec and identifies a specific brand of the MPO-style connector. Therefore, the MTP connector is an MPO connector. But a MTP fiber connector is a high performance MPO fiber connector engineered for better mechanical and optical performance. So what makes the MTP connector superior to generic MPO connectors?Inspection and cleaning attaches great importance for MPO/MTP fiber connector since that issues with connector cleanliness and contamination are the greatest cause of network failure. Cassette cleaner and one-push MPO/MTP cleaner are both available for MPO/MTP connector dry cleaning.

Cassette cleaner is designed for effective cleaning of almost all fiber optic connectors with an accessible ferrule including LC, MU, SC, FC, ST, MPO/MTP, MTRJ and so on. If you only need to clean the accessible connector with a wide range of connector styles, it is an ideal choice for you. Moreover, it is more cost-effective for long-term using in terms of replacing the tape. When using cassette cleaner, please always remember that don’t reverse cleaning direction so as to avoid back wiping this one
