MPO optical transceiver must be used with MPO jumpers. MPO interface is divided into male and female, which must be used together. Generally, the interface type of the optical module is MPO male, connect with MPO female jumper.
MPO interfaces usually used for high-speed modules. Some 40G/100G/200G/400G/800G optical modules are MPO interfaces. The commonly used models of MPO optical module are as following:
The performance of MPO jumper is better than that of LC jumper, but the cost of the MPO is much higher than LC. MPO interface is generally used in short and medium distance transmission
