Importance of Fiber Splicing in Telecommunication Network Project

ElecComm - Splicing Services, Boston, MA

Fiber optic cable splicing is an core competency of ElecComm’s telecommunication network service offerings here in Boston. There are two types of fiber splicing services that we’ve delivered across Boston for years now: mechanical and fusion splicing.

In Mechanical Splicing, two fibers are held at both end points within a sleeve using a mechanical mechanism. Mechanical splicing is usually applied during emergency repairs and fiber testing. On the other hand, in Fusion Splicing, two fibers are welded together by an electric arc. It is the most commonly used method of splicing as it delivers minimal insertion loss and virtually no back reflection. It is the most reliable splicing method.

Fiber splicing is widely used in telecommunications and other networking projects. Both techniques are applied when repairing broken or extending functional telecommunication networks. ElecComm technicians are trained to perform both approaches. Our telecommunication services include construction, splicing, testing maintenance and restoration of fiber, copper, and hybrid fiber-coax telecommunications networks.

Should your telecommunications support need require splicing, testing, maintenance, or general repair of your telecommunications networks, contact ElecComm. It’s what we do for Boston business owners of all types.

Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing Services

Fiber optic networks are the backbone of modern telecommunication systems. There are times these networks require expansion, maintenance, and repair that involve segmenting existing fiber lines. Today we’re going to discuss your options for splicing your fiber optic network.

First, let’s talk about the easiest (but certainly not the preferred) mechanical splicing process. Mechanical splicing should be used for temporary fixes. The optical fibers are mechanically fixed in such a way where ends of the fibers come into contact with each other. This set-up is very prone to insertion loss and back reflection.

Fusion splicing, on the other hand, is the more reliable solution as it significantly improves signal loss and reflectance. Fusion splicing is accomplished via a specialized tool where the fiber ends are heated with electrodes, married, and fused. This method involves stripping, cleaving, alignment, and heat shrink protection of joined fibers. Fusion splicing requires sophisticated skills that only highly-trained technicians can perform. It is significantly more involved than mechanical splicing, but it offers a huge difference in network continuity and communication reliability.

Our engineers and technicians are ready to assist in any and all of your network installation and maintenance needs. For more information about our full line of information network services, contact ElecComm.

Protect Your Fairway Business with Durable and Sturdy Golf Netting System

The golf netting system is an essential component of a sporting field. It ensures golf balls stay within the course. More importantly, they ensure the safety of spectators from injury and properties from damages over a stray golf ball. It is considered negligence to the part of the fairway owner in case an accident associated with an errant ball takes place. For all course operators, it is a primary liability concern.

Fortifying your existing golf netting system is a perfect way to safeguard the people inside the facility and properties adjacent to your golf range. Golf nets must be installed and properly maintained to properly function. We offer the highest quality golf barrier netting on the market which in turn will protect your golfers, staff, and yourself from liability.

When you need to install new or improve your existing golf netting on any Boston-area golf course, ElecComm is your trusted partner. We install poles, netting, and provide repair serves for both as well. Contact ElecComm anytime.
