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 35 dB.
