Abstract

See full text

Fiber optic equipment that supports 8-fiber MPO configurations that enable migration between duplex transmission and 8-fiber parallel transmission is disclosed. The fiber optical equipment comprises a hybrid fiber optic module having a front end and a rear end and a linear array of single fiber optical connector adapters arranged in a width direction at the front end, each of the single fiber optical adapters having a front side and a rear side. The hybrid module also comprises a front multi-fiber adapter at the front end, the front multi-fiber adapter having a front side and a rear side and a rear multi-fiber adapter at the rear end of the module, the rear multi-fiber adapter having a front side and a rear side. The module also comprises a plurality of optical fibers optically connected between a rear side of each of the array of single fiber optic adapters and the front side of the rear multi-fiber adapter, wherein a multi-fiber connector can be connected to either the rear side of the front multi-fiber adapter to enable an optical connection with a multi-fiber connector connected to the front side of the front multi-fiber adapter, or to the rear side of the rear multi-fiber adapter to enable optical connections with a plurality of single fiber optic connectors connected to the linear array of single fiber fiber optic connector adapters.
