Multi-Fiber MPO Switch Module for T-BERD/MTS-4000 Platform

All-in-one integrated solution automating OTDR tests of MPO cables.

Well suited for use in high-density fiber environments, multi-fiber MPO cables eliminate the expense of running individual patch cords for each service turn-up. Widely used in Data Center interconnects, MPO cables are spreading into telecom access applications such as FTTH, FTTA or C-RAN.

The use of an MPO switch (Anixter Code 949012) is the best way to accurately and quickly characterize individual fibers of MPO cables with an OTDR, the T-BERD/MTS-4000 (Anixter Code 882386).
