A mated MPO connector pair by definition requires one side to be 'pinned' while the other side is 'unpinned'. While the MPO format is the standardized multi-fiber optical interconnect in data center structured cabling applications, there are no normative requirements for when cables are to be pinned or unpinned. The rule of thumb informative guidance is that the connector side most likely to remain stationary behind a panel or within an enclosure should be pinned when possible. Without a normative requirement and the potential for multiple demarcation points within a given backbone infrastructure, the possibilities for encountering pinned or unpinned MPOs in the data center are endless. by FS.com on 19 December 2021
