Connector (‘M'ultiple ‘T'erminations, ‘P'ush-pull latch) An MTP(tm) connector can house up to twelve and sometimes more optical fibers in a single, monolithic ferrule. The same style of monolithic ferrule provides a basis for other connectors, such as the MPO. The MT-style connectors save space by providing at least twelve potential connections with a single ferrule, replacing up to twelve single-fiber connectors. MTP(tm) connectors provide an intuitive push-pull latching mechanism for easy insertion. MTP is a trade mark of USConec.
