MTP-MTP jumpers

Jumper cables are used to make the final connection from patch panels to transceivers, or they are used in the centralised cross connect as a means of connecting two independent backbone links. Jumper cables are available with LC connectors or MTP connectors depending on whether the infrastructure is serial or parallel. Generally, jumper cables are short length assemblies because they only connect two devices within the same rack, however in some cases jumper cables can be longer, such as "middle of row" or "end of row" distribution architectures.

HUBER+SUHNER manufactures jumper cables which are optimised for the "in-rack" environment. Jumper cables are smaller and more flexible than conventional assemblies and connectivity is designed to allow highest packing density and easy, fast access. All of our jumper cables contain bend optimised fiber for enhanced performance under tight bending conditions, and our connectors are colour coded and identified based on base type and fiber type.

• Colour coded connector boots by fiber-count
• Ultra compact cable diameter
• Bend optimised fiber and flexible construction
• Available as Base-8, -12 or Base-24 types
• Robust construction

Base-12 MTP jumper cables

Base-12 MTP jumper cables

Base-12 MTP jumpers are used to connect fiber optic patch panels with servers and switches in 4-lane parallel architectures. They can also be used to connect two independent trays or modules within centralised cross-connects. Base-12 jumpers are compatible with Base-8 transceivers, but usage will result in a 33 % fiber wastage because SR4 deployments of 40G require only 8 fibers (4 × lanes). Base-12 jumpers are identified by a black boot at the rear of the connector so that users do not mistake it for a Base-8 assembly with grey boot. Base-12 jumpers are fully compatible with Base-8 backbone cables and patch panels, however users should note that 33 % of jumper fibers will be wasted in such a case.

Base-24 jumper cables

Base-24 jumper cables

Base-24 MTP jumpers are used to connect fiber optic patch panels with servers and switches in 10-lane parallel architectures. They can also be used to connect two independent trays or modules within centralised cross-connects. Base-24 jumpers are typically used for 100G data rates over SR10 transceivers and can be identified by a red boot at the rear of the connector.

Base-8 MTP jumper cables

Base-8 MTP jumper cables

Base-8 MTP jumpers are used to connect fiber optic patch panels with servers and switches in 4-lane parallel architectures. They can also be used to connect two independent trays or modules within centralised cross-connects. Base-8 is the most common interface for 40G data rates and new developments in transceiver technology means that Base-8 could also satisfy 100G, 200G and 400G in the future.
Base-8 jumpers are identified by a grey boot at the rear of the connector so that users do not mistake it for a Base-12 assembly with black boot. Base-8 jumpers are fully compatible with Base-12 patch backbone cables and patch panels, however users should note that 33 % of backbone fibers will be wasted in such a case.
