  • This is why we have developed STARLIGHT >>>> Based on the MTP ….. Array connector sometimes known as the Rapid Fibre Deployment ( RFD) product ….. USED in Data Centres and high volume fibre networks ………Market for Data centres is exploding……….Demand for preterm fibre solutions set to rise quickly ………Traditional “Opal” solution too slow……….MPO technology developed over 20 years ago for NTT ………..MTP technology developed by US manufacturers ………MTP is an advanced version of MPO………MPO and MTP currently dominate the US market ……..The ‘Array’ connector will be used in the developing 40Gb and 100Gb standards
  • The MPO connector family is defined by two different standards. Internationally the MPO is defined by IEC-61754-7. In the USA, the MPO is defined by TIA-604-5 (also called FOCIS 5). The MTP multi-fiber connector is US manufactured (we are not mentioning the US Conec name) a trademarked name for a version of the MPO connector. The MTP connector is fully compliant with both FOCIS 5 and IEC-61754-7; therefore it is an MPO connector. While there are many MPO connectors on the market (Furukawa, Sumitomo, Fujikura), the MTP parts are distinctly different. The MTP connector is a high performance MPO!
  • MTP can be your solution to save space, time, and energy. All it takes is one port!
  • Standard ….. Cassette (x 4 per 1U panel) and Cable Store available as: LC Duplex (ports) std 12 (24), 48 (96) …… per cassette 6 (12), 12 (24) therefore 48 port duplex max …….. Cable store 12 (24), 48 (96) SC Duplex (ports) std 24 (48) ……….. Per Cassette 3 (6) , 6 (12) ……… cable store 24 (48)
  • ISO 9001 quality regime Connectix controls quality right from the start + A unique 100% testing programme Only Inferometer measuring equipment in the UK for MTP 12 months developing / training and equipping £100k investment in new facility in Braintree Third part testing and accreditation and certificates of conformity round off the programme

  • A reduced cable diameter means; less cable tray, less air flow obstruction, easier cabinet entry and less and easier fire-stopping
  • Preterminated cabling solutions Copper and fibre cabling can be connectorised off-site, leading to; Reduced time on site, up to 75% less Increased Quality and Consistency Reduced onsite supervision levels required due to simplicity of the installation. Reducing skill shortfall risk to virtually zero, as there is potentially little need for sub-contract labour. Virtually zero on-site fault correction rate. Skilled workforce operating in conditions conducive to total quality manufacturing. Repeatable, high quality terminations with a consistent performance across all ports. Not all installers accept it because it shifts value to the manufacturer Much more time must be spent in accurate surveying of the cable routes Not all cabling copes well with the preterminated bundling process Cable must be 100% tested in the factory and usually sample tested after installation Systems manufactured by both original cabling manufacturers, other third parties and installers
