Minor MPO/MTP endface contaminants under PAM4 modulation can greatly erode 200G/400G link budgetsl

AFL estimates there are more than 10 million MPO/MTP connectors in use across the world today, with more than 1 million forecasted to be fielded in 2019. An MPO connector market compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of at least 10% is expected to sustain for the next five years, driven by the insatiable consumer demand for broadband data services. Nearly all link failures occur at points of connection, and very rarely across unbroken network spans. At the same time, the signal modulation technology that underlies the new short-reach 200G/400G optical Ethernet standard reduces the available link budget in high-bandwidth datacom applications – making the operational need for immaculate connector endfaces all the more imperative.
