OX-MPO-12 Multi-fiber Optical Switch

OX-MPO-12 Multi-fiber Optical Switch

The OX-MPO-12 is an ultra-compact, multi-fiber optical switch designed to operate with VeEX OTDRs. Optimized for high-density fiber test applications where MPO/MTP cables need to be tested using an OTDR equipped with a single fiber output.

  • 12-fiber optical switch for MPO/MTP fiber cable characterization
  • SC/APC input for OTDR connection
  • Pinned MPO/APC output for MPO/MTP cable under test
  • Protective dust caps for SC and MPO connectors
  • Eliminates the requirement for multi-fiber break-out cables
  • Powered/controlled over micro-USB interface by the OTDR
  • Automated wizard procedure for patch-cord referencing
  • Very fast boot-up time (<5 seconds)
  • Rugged case design with impact resistant rubber bumpers
  • Splash and dust resistant
  • Data Center – Verify/troubleshoot structured cabling
  • FTTH/Access Networks – Testing feeder cables between OLT and first splitter where MPO and/or ribbon fibers are used
  • Wireless Fronthaul (FTTA/C-RAN) – testing MPO fiber links and connections in Base Band Unit (BBU)


  • Number of fibers: 12
  • Singlemode (9/125 μm) operation
  • Wavelength range: 1270 to 1650 nm
  • *Insertion loss*: <1.5 dB (Typical), <1.8 dB (Max)
  • Repeatability: ≤±0.01 dB
  • Switching time: ≤30 ms (sequential channels)
  • Input port: SC/APC
  • Output port: Pinned MPO/APC, 12-fiber
  • Optical Return Loss (ORL): ≥50 dB
  • Weight: 450g (1lb)
  • Power/Control: Via micro-USB interface from OTDR
