WX_MPO_2015MPO/MTP Adapter

Fast and accurate MPO/MTP® cabling and component testing with WireXpert certifier

This MPO test solution enables data center IT-managers, -technichians and -installers to get quick and accurate assessment of the quality of MPO cabling.
Additionally, it helps in performing incoming inspection of MPO components as i.e. trunk cables, fan-out cables and cassettes.
The key feature of this solution is a 5-second Autotest that includes the detection of fiber connection map and the measurement of loss on each fiber.
