MTP® Fiber Assemblies

Mohawk MTP Fiber Assemblies image

MTP® installations have evolved as the new standard for high bandwidth installations in compact spaces. In keeping with this progression, Mohawk has expanded its Open Architecture product family with MTP® Multi Fiber Assemblies constructed and delivered to you in 48 hours on stock fiber cables.

Why MTP assemblies? MTP connectors are small form factor high density fiber connectors. The MTP was introduced as 12 fibers across the connector face to support 6 duplex channels and have evolved to accommodate 24, 48 and even 72 fibers in rows of 12 across the same end face footprint. This extremely dense fiber count across a small footprint saves valuable data center port allocation space and installation cost savings through its “Plug n- Play” attributes.

What MTP assemblies are available? Mohawk assemblies are available with Loose Tube OFNP (Plenum), Armored, Outside Plant and Indoor/Outdoor fiber cables with MTP®, LC and SC connectors. You customize the assembly by choosing the fiber grade, fiber count and length needed for your project.

48 Hour shipments: Mohawk offers 48 hour shipments for the most common fiber types and counts. 50/125 (OM3) OFNP in 12, 24 and 48 fiber counts and SMF (OS2) OFNP in 12 and 24 fiber counts are available for 48 hour delivery. When you place your order and receive an order confirmation by noon, the assemblies will ship within 48 hours. Other cable types and fiber counts are also available including Interlock Armor OFCP and OSP. Fiber types available in OM1, OM2 OM3, OM4 and SMF OS2. Consult your Mohawk representative for details and lead times.

How do I create an assembly part number? To build a part number specific for your project, use the following part number configurator:

Glass Type + Cable Design + Fiber Count + Connector A + Connector B + Pulling Eye + Length

You then choose from the following options to build your assembly:
