MDC Connector Structure

Published by DMSI on

The MDC connector is a Very Small Form Factor (VSFF) duplex optical connector designed for termination of single-mode and multimode fiber cables up to 2.0mm in diameter. It is a 2-fiber connector using proven 1.25mm LC ferrules, providing 3x density over LC. Adapters use the same port cutouts and sizes as LC, allowing current designs to transfer from LC to MDC. MDC solutions include uniboot style jumpers, harnesses, trunks, panels, and many pre-terminated MTP® options.


  • Insertion and Removal via a push-pull strain relief boot
  • Reversible polarity without exposing fibers, and without the use of a tool
  • Meets IEC 61735-1 Grade B optical performance
  • Optional component for multiple jumper insertion and removal from ports
  • Uniboot design, terminates on 2.0mm micro cable
  • Multimode and Single-mode UPC & APC options
  • GR-326 and TIA-568 compliant

For high-density data centers application, DMSI designed and engineered OMNIA® Next Generation MDC Solutions for guaranteed exceptional optical performance and optimal stability exceeding the requirements of Telcordia GR-326. (
