Seasoned industry professionals may recall the excruciating, painstaking days of installing and connecting countless fibers, one at a time. As the number of data centers grew exponentially in the 2000s, designers and installers were tasked with managing hundreds and even thousands of single- and 2-fiber connector solutions. To accommodate the high volume of connectors within ever-tighter space constraints, installers and designers were forced to create more elaborate storage and routing solutions that came with their own set of challenges. Fortunately, those days are long gone – thanks in large part to the emergence of the multi-fiber push-on (MPO) connector. The MPO format dramatically reduced the amount of time, effort, and space required to install and deploy network technologies, particularly in parallel optic applications.
A speck of dust you can’t see on an MPO connector can bring down a high-speed trunk, potentially affecting thousands of users. This video covers techniques for cleaning MPO connections using both dry and wet methods and shows how fast and easy it is to inspect them to make sure the job is done right.
Understanding complex cable connectivity is crucial to the overall installation and your project’s success. The top five connectivity issues that impact performance are: Use of the incorrect network interface type; selection of proper cable type; reversed polarity; mismatched connectors; and poor installation practices.
