Multifiber push-on (MPO) connectors are increasingly popular because they provide many advantages to high-speed network operators, owners and installation companies. Increasingly, telcos are also reconfiguring their central offices into data centers (CORD) and deploying MPO cables with 12, but mostly 24 fibers. However, since the main source of loss in short links is connector-related, not properly testing and caring for MPO connectors puts networks at risk.
Techs need simple, easy-to-use tools – and a clear, reliable method – to get the essential testing required done quickly and accurately.
EXFO’s ConnectorMax MPO Test Solution combines the three essential tests needed to validate MPO cables and perform shortlink testing into one automated step. This solution brings together the ConnectorMax Multifiber Source with the ConnectorMax Fiber Inspection Probe to deliver a quick and easy-to-use solution that validates the polarity type, continuity and connector cleanliness of MPO links. Results are loaded in the ConnectorMax Analysis Software, an app for mobile devices providing clear pass/fail status and reporting functions, making it easy for technicians to perform and view the results of all three of these tests on the spot.
