Sumitomo Electric Intros 8-Fiber QSFP-40G Splice-On Connector for 40G/100G

Sumitomo Electric Lightwave introduced an 8-fiber QSFP(Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable) -40G– SR4 MPO splice-on connector that facilitates fast and easy 40 and 100GbE data center and enterprise network connectivity. Coupled with laser optimized 0M4 8-count fiber ribbon cable, the 8-fiber MPO splice-on-connector allows real-time and on-site cable builds and permanent terminations of jumpers, trunk cables, harnesses and arrays.

Sumitomo said its 8-fiber solution optimizes not only 40/100GbE and beyond networks, but is also backward compatible with legacy networks (1G & 10G), creating a real-time, scalable, and already future-proofed network.

The transition from a 12 fiber count to 8 is already made within the ferrule of the 8-fiber MPO splice-on connector. The new connector is compatible with other QSFP-40G-SR4 connectors and 100GbE modules at 25G transmission. Insertion loss of the new connector is < 0.35dB and it is compatible with Sumitomo Electric Lightwave’s Quantum Type-M12 mass fusion splicer and other leading brands.

“ As the first company to have introduced the MPO splice-on connector, we are pleased to offer our customers further innovations in MPO and optical ribbon fiber technology,” comments Joshua Seawell, director of Lightwave Network Products at Sumitomo Electric Lightwave. “Our continued leadership in providing continuous innovations for the data center ensures that our customers stay ahead of today’s rapid technology curve in order to deploy the most advanced and cost efficient solutions possible.“
