LC and SFP28, MPO/MTP and QSFP+
Whether you are upgrading from 1/10GbE to 25GbE or 40GbE to 200GbE, all roads are leading to 2-fiber (LC) and 8-fiber (MPO/MTP) connections for tomorrow’s data center fiber networks. Excitedly, migration paths do exist that allow for the re-use of cable plant you have in place today!
LC, Ol’ Reliable Upgrading 1/10GbE to 25GbE
Our 1.25 mm ferrule small form factor friend has been utilized in fiber networks for 20+ years. These LC connectors are still popular in data centers today supporting 1GbE to 10GbE IP network connections and thanks to the new SFP28 standard and BiDi Optics, LC will continue to be used for years to come.
