Lynx-CustomFit® 2 Splice-On Connectors (MPO Q8)


Sumitomo’s Lynx2-MPOQ8 is the industry’s first 8 fiber MPO splice-on field installable connector that is compatible with the 40G and 100G versions of the QSFP+ SR4 fiber path configuration. The breakthrough technology of the Lynx2-MPOQ8 is the latest addition to Sumitomo’s 8ct based fiber network solution which allows for 100% fiber utilization without the requirement of costly conversion modules, thereby achieving substantial cost savings per 40G and 100G port.

The Lynx2-MPOQ8 allows for custom trunk and jumper cable builds for optimization of fiber path and cable management. No risk of pre-term trunk and jumper cables that are too short, too long or damaging connectors during install. The Lynx2-MPOQ8 coupled with Sumitomo’s wide range of ribbon cable options equals exact length trunk and jumper builds every time! The Lynx2-MPOQ8 is the best option for building custom length, on time and QSFP+ SR4 compatible trunk and jumper cables.
