Fiber Optics Cable Splicing

Fiber optic splicing is the process of permanently joining two fiber optic cables together to create a continuous optical connection. It involves aligning and fusing the fiber cores to achieve low-loss and high-strength connections. Fiber optic splicing is commonly used in telecommunications, data centres, and other applications where reliable and high-speed data transmission is required. There are two main methods of fiber optic splicing: fusion splicing and mechanical splicing.

Mechanical splicing is relatively simpler and does not require specialised equipment like fusion splicers. However, it typically results in slightly higher insertion loss compared to fusion splicing and may be more susceptible to environmental factors.

Both fusion splicing and mechanical splicing have their advantages and are chosen based on specific requirements, budget, and available resources. Splicing fiber optics should be performed by trained professionals using appropriate tools and techniques to ensure optimal performance and reliability of the spliced connections. Call us now!
