Fiber splicing

Fiber Optic Splicing

•Fiber optic cable is spliced one optical fiber at a time

•Recommended technique is to fusion splice fiber

–Fusion splicing melts two ends of bare optical fibers together using an electric arc

–This is the way to splice a fiber cable going to a home on to the cable in the street

–It is also how to terminate fiber optic cables into fiber optic patch panels

•Splicing is quite simple, but you need trained technicians and specialized tooling to keep your system in operating condition
