FS MPO/MTP fiber cassettes are available with FHX series and FHD series, which is used for our FHX and FHD fiber optic patch panel respectively. FHD series MPO/MTP cassettes are pre-terminated and pre-tested enclosed units. MTP modular cassettes serve to transmit small diameter ribbon cables terminated with MPO connectors to LC or SC interface used on the transceiver terminal equipment. The fan-outs incorporate LC, SC connectors insert into adapters on the front side of the cassette and MPO connectors plugged into MPO adapters mounted at the rear of the cassette. One or more MPO fan-out assemblies can be installed inside the cassette to connect up to 24 fibers. Alignment pins are pre-installed in the MPO connector located inside the cassette. These pins precisely align the mating fibers in the MPO connectors at either end of the array cables that plug into the cassettes. MPO/MTP cassettes can be deployed quickly and easily in high-density applications, leveraging rack space and fiber enclosure design flexibility. The cassette is interconnected with a high-density fiber optic cable assembly for quick connection to remote or data center applications.

10G DWDM Network for Economically Expanding Capacity

It can’t be denied that for most users, the capacity and transmission data rate their 10G networks offer sufficiently meet their needs at present. However, for some users, their 10G networks are capacity-hungry that requires more and more fiber optical cables installed for carrying large data. Considering that the available fiber infrastructure is limited, the method of putting more cables would be infeasible or unsuitable once the infrastructure no longer fulfill the growing requirements. Is there any economical solution to solve this issue, except upgrading the network that would cost a lot? The answer is yes. In order to create new capacity at a relatively low price, WDM technology is come up with that enables virtual fibers to carry more data. Since WDM technology has been a cost effective solution to face the capacity-hungry issue, here will offer the economical DWDM SFP+ transceiver and DWDM Mux Demux solutions for you to build the 10G DWDM network, which enables bigger capacity to meet your network needs.

10G DWDM SFP+ Transceiver

The DWDM SFP+ transceiver is an enhanced version of DWDM SFP transceiver that can transmit signals at 10Gbps–the max data rate, mostly deployed in the dark fiber project in combination with the DWDM Mux Demux. Like other kinds of SFP+ transceivers, it is also compliant to the SFP MSA (multi-source agreement), designed for building 10G Ethernet network. However, the working principle of DWDM SFP+ transceiver is much more complicated than that of common SFP+ transceiver due to the DWDM technology.

10g DWDM SFP+ transceiver

Generally, the DWDM SFP+ transceiver has a specific tuned laser offering various wavelengths with pre-defined “colors” which are defined in the DWDM ITU grid. The colors of the wavelengths are named in channels and the wavelengths are around 1550nm. Its channels are commonly from 17 to 61 and the spacing between channels is always about 0.8nm. In fiber optical network, the 100GHz C-Band with 0.8nm DWDM SFP+ transceiver is the most commonly used one, while transceivers with other spectrum bands like 50GHz with 0.4nm spacing DWDM SFP+ transceiver are also popular with users.

According to the transmission distance, the DWDM SFP+ transceiver can be divided into two types. One is the DWDM-SFP10G-40 with an optical power budget of 15dB, and the other is the DWDM-SFP10G-80 with an optical power budget of 23dB. As we know, the bigger the optical power budget is, the longer the transceiver will support the 10G network. Hence, the DWDM-SFP10G-40 can transmit 10G signals at lengths up to 40 km, but the DWDM-SFP10G-80 is able to support the same network with a longer distance, 80 km. What should be paid attention to is that the transmission distance can be also affected by the quality and type of the DWDM Mux Demux, the quality and length of the fiber, and other factors.

10G DWDM Mux Demux

The DWDM Mux Demux is a commonly used type of fiber optical multiplexer designed for creating virtual fibers to carry larger data, which consists of a multiplexer on one end for combining the optical signals with different wavelengths into an integrated signal and a de-multiplexer on the other end for separating the integrated signal into several ones. During its working process, it carries the integrated optical signals together on a single fiber, which means the capacity is expanded to some extent. In most applications, the electricity is not required in its working process because the DWDM Mux Demux are passive.

Unlike the CWDM Mux Demux with 20nm channel spacing, the DWDM Mux Demux has a denser channel spacing, usually 0.8nm, working from the 1530 to 1570nm band. It is designed for long transmission, which is more expensive than CWDM Mux Demux used for short transmission. Meanwhile, it also commonly used the 100 GHz C-band DWDM technique like the DWDM transceiver. As for its classification, there are basically two types according to line type, dual fiber and single fiber DWDM Mux Demux, and six types according to the number of the channels, 4, 8, 16, 40, 44 and 96 channels DWDM Mux Demux. All these types of DWDM Mux Demux are available at FS.COM with ideal prices. To better understand the DWDM Mux Demux, here offers a figure of a stable 8 channel DWDM Mux Demux for your reference.

8 channel 10g DWDM Mux Demux


Taking the cost issue into consideration, deploying a 10G DWDM network is much more economical than upgrading your network from 10G to 40G/100G which almost requires changing out all the electronics in your network. The 10G DWDM network makes full use of DWDM technology to expand the network capacity, which creates virtual fibers to support more data signals. If your 10G network is also capacity-hungry, you are highly suggested to deploy 10G DWDM network to make new capacity. As for the related components the 10G DWDM network needs like transceiver and Mux Demux, you can easily find them at FS.COM. For instance, FS.COM offers the DWDM SFP+ transceivers compatible with almost every brand, including Cisco, Juniper, Brocade, Huawei, Arista, HP and Dell, which have been tested to assure 100% compatibility.

Things You Should Know to Deploy 100G Ethernet Network

Although the 10G and 40G Ethernet network still occupy the majority of fiber market at present, it is predicted that more and more users would deploy 100G Ethernet network in the following years for higher capacity and faster transmission data rate, and the 100G cabling network would finally make the 10G and 40G cabling network obsolete. Is there any evidence to support this prediction? Why to replace 10G and 40G cabling network and how to deploy the 100G cabling network? Does this statement take the cost issue into consideration since the 100G products like QSFP28 transceiver and QSFP28 breakout cable are much more expensive than the 10G and 40G products? Let’s talk about these topics and find the most cost effective way to deploy the 100G cabling network.

Why We Deploy 100G Cabling Network?

With the fast development of fiber technology, the capacity and transmission data rate that the 10G and 40G networks offer gradually can’t meet our needs and the Ethernet network is still driven to satisfy the increasing requirements of faster and easier access to larger volumes of data. Under this trend, the 100G network is come up with that enables unsurpassed bandwidth but can be only available at a high price. As the 100G technology is gradually matured, the cost for 100G network deployment is reduced a lot. Hence, more and more users would like to deploy the 100G network for bigger bandwidth, even it would still cost higher than 10G and 40G network deployment.

Which Transceiver Is the Best for Deploying 100G Network?

Before designing the 100G cabling network, we should choose the most proper 100G fiber transceiver to greatly ensure the performance of the network. Since there are four common kinds of 100G fiber transceivers–CFP, CFP2, CFP4 and QSFP28 transceiver available on the market, let’s study the basic knowledge of these 100G transceivers and discuss which one is the best choice for the 100G network deployment.

CFP transceiver is the first version of 100G transceiver which is published after the establishment of certification for the first 100G standard for Ethernet networks. The letter “C” means 100G, while the letters “FP” stand for Form factor Pluggable, just like the “FP” in the word SFP. In order to support the 100G network, it features very huge size which is much larger than 40G QSFP+ transceiver. Meanwhile, most of the CFP transceivers double the power consumption per bit and are ten times more expensive for per bit increased. All these shortcomings hinder the popularity of CFP transceiver and make the CFP2 and CFP4 transceiver published successively.

The CFP2 and CFP4 transceiver has no any improvement in the aspects like density, power consumption and cost, but be only advanced in the size aspect. From the following figure, you can learn that the size of the CFP family become more and more smaller. However, due to the high power consumption and cost, using CFP family to deploy 100G network still can’t meet the network requirement. Under this condition, experts put forward the QSFP28 transceiver solution which is much smaller and more economic than CFP family.


In contrast to the CFP family, QSFP28 transceiver is a better choice that offers four 25-Gbps lanes, totally achieving the whole 100G network. With use of this kind of 100G transceiver, the 100G network can be deployed as easy as the 10G and 40G network. Moreover, it completely eliminates the costly gearbox found in CFP and CFP2, while highly increasing density and decreasing power and price per bit. Hence, among all the 100G transceivers, the QSFP28 transceiver is the first choice for deploying 100G network, which should be considered as the most economical transceiver solution.

Which 100G Cabling Solution Should Be Selected?

After choosing the best 100G transceiver solution, it is also necessary to design the 100G cabling network. At present, there are basically two 100G cabling solutions. One is the direct cabling solution usually working with the QSFP28 cable, and the other is the breakout cabling solution that always uses the QSFP28 breakout cable. Considering that each solution has its own connection method and works with different fiber or copper cable, which one should be selected depends on the practical application.

QSFP28 Cable for 100G Direct Cabling and QSFP28 Breakout Cable for 100G Breakout Cabling

As for the 100G direct cabling solution, it always uses the 100GBase-SR4 QSFP28 transceiver to finish short distance transmission, and 100GBASE-LR4 QSFP28 transceiver for long transmission. In short transmission case, the 100GBase-SR4 QSFP28 transceiver can support the 100G network through OM3 12 fiber multimode MTP cable at lengths up to 70 m, and 100 m through OM4 12 fiber multimode MTP cable. It can also work with the 100G QSFP28 to QSFP28 passive direct attach cable (DAC) for up to 5m transmission and with the 100G QSFP28 to QSFP28 active direct attach cable (AOC) for up to 10m transmission. While in the long transmission case, 100GBASE-LR4 QSFP28 transceiver enables the 100G network up to 10 km on single-mode LC patch cable. If much longer transmission distance is required, you are highly suggested to choose the 100GBASE-ER4 CFP transceiver that can transmit the 100G signal at lengths up to 40 km.

As for the breakout cabling solution, the connection method is very different from the previous one, which usually use the QSFP28 breakout cable to connect one QSFP28 transceiver on one side and four SFP28 transceivers on the opposite side. This kind of 100G cabling solution enables higher port bandwidth, density and configurability at a low cost and reduces power consumption in data centers. Besides, the QSFP28 breakout cables used for 100G breakout cabling can be simply divided into two types, QSFP28 to 4SFP28 DACs and AOCs. Both of the two kinds of QSFP28 breakout cables feature four individual 25G duplex cables to achieve 100G connections, similar to the 40G QSFP+ breakout cable that has four individual 10G duplex cables.


With the gradual mature of 100G Ethernet technology, the cost issue is not the obstacle for the popularization of 100G Ethernet network any more. If your network has a very low transmission speed and the capacity it offers can’t face your need, then you are recommendable to upgrade your network from 10G/40G to 100G, for faster and easier access to larger volumes of data. As for the transceiver used for 100G connection, the QSFP28 is the fist choice as the most cost effective solution at present. As for the 100G network cabling, the direct cabling for 100G to 100G connection and the breakout cabling for 100G to 4×25G connection are good solutions for 100G network deployment. Which one should be selected just depends on the practical application.

Migrating to 40/100G Networks With MTP Harness Conversion Cable

The market turning to 40G/100G transmission is imperative in today’s gigabit Ethernet applications. MTP cabling assemblies, with their overwhelming advantages, provide a fast, simple and economical upgrade path from 10 Gigabit to 40 or 100 Gigabit applications. As we all know, 40G/100G gigabit Ethernet backbone networks often use 8-fibers per channel, which means most existing equipment doesn’t utilize fibers fully in 12-fiber cabling systems. Today this post will introduce a type of MTP fiber cable—MTP conversion cable which can overcome the problem mentioned above.

12-fiber MTP connectors are popular in the past years. And most backbone networks deploy the 12-fiber cabling systems. But with the quick development of optical transceivers, for 40G/100G gigabit applications, many transceivers that are guiding the industry from 10G to 40G and100G utilize only eight fibers. Then the problem arises. However, MTP conversion cable allows users to convert their existing MTP backbone cables to an MTP type which matches their active equipment. It’s a low-loss alternative to conversion modules because they eliminate one mated MTP pair across the link. There are mainly three types of MTP conversion cable on the market: 1×2, 1×3 and 2×3 MTP conversion cable.

1×2 Harness MTP Conversion Cable

This MTP conversion cable has a 24-fiber MTP connector on one end and two 12-fiber MTP connectors on the other end. It is used to allow existing 10G MTP 12-fiber trunk cables to carry 40G/100G channels. The 40G/100G signal is split equally across two 12-fiber trunks which were previously installed within a traditional MTP modular network.

1x2 MTP conversion cable

1×3 MTP Harness Conversion Cable

Like the 1×2 MTP conversion cable, this conversion cable also has a 24-fiber MTP connector on one end. But the other end comprises three 8-fiber MTP connectors, which is different from the former type. This MTP conversion cable allows users to convert their 24-fiber backbone trunks into Base-8 connections so that 40G rates can be achieved easily. A Single Base-24 connection is split out to three Base-8 connections, giving users three 40G ports.

1x3 MTP conversion cable

2×3 Harness MTP Conversion Cable

For users who have already installed a 10G MTP based network using 12-fiber and 24-fiber trunk cables and modules, this 2×3 MTP conversion cable can provide the conversion from 12-fiber to 8-fiber connectivity for full-fiber utilization, especially allowing for maximum use of existing fibers when converting to 40G channels. Because the conversion cable has two 12-fiber MTP connectors on one end and three 8-fiber MTP connectors on another end. They are available in either direct or crossed polarity for fast deployment using polarity management method A, and polarity can be reversed on site, offering enhanced flexibility & operability.

2x3 MTP conversion cable

Cabling Options with 40G/100G MTP Conversion Cable

The 40G/100G MTP conversion cables eliminate the wasted fibers in current 40 gigabit transmissions and upcoming 100 gigabit transmission. Compared to purchase and install separate conversion cassettes, using MTP conversion cables is a more cost-effective, lower-loss option. Here are three application examples.

Cabling Options for 40G/100G Connectivity With 1×3 MTP Conversion Cable

As shown in the picture below, two 40G/100G switches are connected by 1X3 MTP conversion cables (one 24-fiber MTP connector on one end and three 8-fiber MTP connectors on the other end), 24-fiber MTP trunk cable and MTP adapter panels. With this MTP conversion cable, less fiber cables are required. That brings more conveniences for cable management in data centers.

1x3 MTP conversion cable soulution

The cabling solution for 40G/100G conversion with 1×2 MTP conversion cable is similar to the solution of 1×3 MTP conversion cable.

Cabling Options for 40G Connectivity with 2×3 MTP Conversion Cable

In the following applications, connecting the 40G transceivers with a 8-fiber MTP conversion cable rather than a traditional 12-fiber MTP jumper, can enscure the 100% backbone fiber utilization and saving cost.

2x3 MTP conversion cable soulution


The 40G/100G MTP conversion cables provide a cost-effective cabling solution for upgrading to 40G and 100G networks. All the benefits and features of these MTP conversion harness cables are explained in the article. And the three types of 40G/100G MTP conversion cable which are available in OS2, OM3 and OM4 options are provided in FS.COM. If you want to know more details, please contact us via
