Summary: 
We have developed a 7-core-fiber connector. To maintain both the ferrule floating mechanism and precise alignment around the ferrule axis, we employed Oldham's coupling mechanism inside an MU-type connector plug housing and realized an average attenuation of 0.13dB and an average return loss of 48.2dB.
