This letter describes design and performance of a multicore fiber connector with a plastic-molded ferrule. Discussing ferrule fabrication errors, the connector loss and crosstalk were evaluated. The constructed connector for joining and fanouting multimode two-core fibers showed an insertion loss of 0. 4 db and a crosstalk of less than minus 35 db.
