Fibre migration options for 40G/100G Ethernet

Install today ... migrate tomorrow!


Today’s active components support LC connectivity. But the next generation of switches will feature a new connector already standardised for 40 and 100G transmission – the MPO. As a consequence, data centre managers need to consider how to plan for that change in the near future.

The Nexans LANmark-OF MPO cabling solution solves this migration problem.

By using MPO/LC adaptor cassettes, existing LC hardware can be connected whilst enabling an upgrade path to future 40G devices by swapping the cassette to MPO/MPO.

The MPO connector’s advanced design, working with preterminated cables, results in a well-controlled connectivity channel that makes MPO a true plug and play solution.
