  • Country of Origin: USA

When used in parallel applications that utilize 8 fibers (4 TX and 4 RX lanes), conventional 12 fiber MTP/MPO cables waste 1/3rd of the fibers in the cable plant. To overcome this, Opticonx recommends the use of Xtreme12 Conversion Modules to eliminate wasted fibers.

40Gbs Ethernet (40GBASE-SR4) and 100Gbs Ethernet (100GBASE-SR4) use 8 fibers per channel. The MTP interface uses the 1st four fibers to transmit and the last four fibers to receive. The middle four fibers are not utilized. 12-fiber MTP leaves 1/3 of the fibers dark. The Xtreme12 2x3 Conversion Module converts the signal from 3 4-channel transceivers to two 12-fiber trunks, achieving 100% utilization of a 12-fiber network.

A denser solution for 12-fiber networks is a 4x6 Conversion Module for converting the signal from 6 4 channel transceivers to 4 12-fiber trunks.

Conversion Modules for 24-fiber networks convert 1 24-fiber MTP to 3 8-fiber MTPs.
