Small Satellite Conference 2019
Small Satellite Conference 2019

During the Small Satellites conference, the discussion will be around the technical issues, development considerations, and new opportunities that result from an ever-growing trend toward missions using tens, hundreds, or even thousands of small satellites.

Optipack conversion harness system (MTP-MTP)

Optipack conversion harnesses allow users to convert their existing MTP backbone cables to an MTP type which matches their active equipment. Conversion harnesses are a low-loss alternative to conversion modules because they eliminate one mated MTP pair across the link. Many of today’s legacy infrastructures are built using a Base-12 MTP backbone design, however experience shows us that this connector is rarely used on higher data rate switches or servers. Currently Base-8 is the preferred connector for 40G (SR4) transceivers and Base-24 is the preferred connector for 100G transceivers (SR10).
The wide variation of MTP connector types in the modern data center has led to some confusion concerning the identification of different Base-types. HUBER+SUHNER conversion harnesses are supplied with colour coded boots so that users can quickly identify the required connectivity type. This is particularly important with conversion harnesses that have different connectors at each end of the assembly.

  • Ultra low-loss
  • compact furcation divider and cable

Base-24/2x12 conversion harnesses

Base-24/2x12 conversion harnesses

Base-12 conversion harnesses allow users to convert their pre-installed 12 fiber backbone trunks into either Base-8 or Base-24 connections so that 40G or 100G data rates can be achieved. Two Base-12 connections are combined inside the housing to produce three Base-8 or one Base-24 connection at the other end of the assembly.

Base-24/3x8 conversion harnesses

Base-24/3x8 conversion harnesses

Base-8 conversion harnesses allow users to convert their 8 fiber backbone trunks into a single 24 fiber MTP connector for use in SR10 deployments (typically 100G). Three Base-8 connectors are combined inside the furcation housing so that a single MTP24 fiber connector can be plugged to the transceiver. The same harness can also be used to convert a Base-24 connector into 3 × Base-8 connectors if the backbone is based on Base-24 design.

Base-2x12/3x8 conversion harnesses

Base-2x12/3x8 conversion harnesses

Base-8 conversion harnesses allow users to convert their 8 fiber backbone trunks into a single 24 fiber MTP connector for use in SR10 deployments (typically 100G). Three Base-8 connectors are combined inside the furcation housing so that a single MTP24 fiber connector can be plugged to the transceiver. The same harness can also be used to convert a Base-24 connector into 3 × Base-8 connectors if the backbone is based on Base-24 design.
