OXFORD Cleaved-MPO Connector

Oxford Fiber® offers the OXFORD Cleaved-MPO, the world’s first rugged, cleaved MPO splice-on connector, allowing reliable field termination of ribbon fiber cables. The Cleaved-MPO is designed to overcome the problem of dust contamination of MPO connections which leads to a failed connection. The Cleaved-MPO incorporates an air-gap between mating fibers and so is dust-insensitive. It can be mated/ unmated over 100’s of cycles with no change in performance. Excessive cleaning is no longer required giving longer lifetime and assured performance. The pre-prepared ferrule comes in a sealed package ready for fusion splicing to external ribbon cables. The connector can be spliced by a range of fusion splicers using standard fiber tooling.
