Fibre optic splicing is the process of joining two optical fibres together, to
- join pre-manufactured ends onto the end of a cable
- repair damaged cables
- create long distance fibre runs.
There are two main types of splicing: mechanical and fusion. Mechanical splicing involves aligning two fibres and holding them in place with a mechanical splice.
Fusion splicing, on the other hand, uses heat to melt the ends of two fibres together, creating a permanent bond. Fusion splicing is more reliable than mechanical splicing because it creates a permanent lower-loss connection between the fibres.
A to B Communications only fusion splice. Using the latest core aligning Sumitomo fusion splicers, all our splicing work is of the highest quality with minimal losses. All fibre optic splicing works will be OTDR tested after completion and the results provided in PDF format in your project pack. For all your fibre optic splicing requirements trust A to B Communications.
