MPO Fiber Patch Cables are connectors that comprise multiple optical fibers. It is typically defined as an array connector that has more than 2 fibers, so MPO Connectors are typically available from 8, 12 to 24 fibers for common data center and LAN applications. 

The similar term MTP Connector is also used interchangeably with MPO Connector. This term is a registered trademark of the MPO connector offered by US Conec. The MTP connector is fully compliant with MPO standards and is described by US Conec as an MPO that has been engineered to very tight tolerances for improved performance.
