The internet plays an integral role in all business operations, large or small. Perhaps your business’ data flow gets throttled by routine administrative demands such as video conferencing and video streaming. When this happens, all elements of your business suffer. If you have insufficient bandwidth, it’s not only your network that is slowed. Your business productivity and ultimately your profitability is throttled as well. If you have recurring and frustration slow data transfer, consider upgrading your telecommunication network through fiber optic splicing services by certified network engineers. Here are the resultant advantages of fiber optic enhancement to your network and business:

  • Exceptionally High Bandwidth - Presently, no other cable material can exceed the performance of fiber optics. Copper wires are no match to the volume of data it can process and transmit per unit time.
  • It Reaches Longer Distance - Signals are transmitted to a longer distance because of its low power loss capability.
  • Resistant to Electromagnetic Interference - It has very low rate of bit error and its transmission is virtually noise-free.
  • Absolute Data Security - Since in fiber optic transmission data are transmitted in a speed of light, it would be impossible to detect it by "listening in" to the electromagnetic energy escaping through the cable.

Business served by enhanced telecommunication fiber optic distribution process data and online transactions fast. The efficiencies gained via fiber optic splicing will significantly increase business productivity and promotes better customer service through enhanced telecommunication network.

How To Perform Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing

When expanding an existing network or installing a new one, fiber optic splicing is done to fuse optic cables. It must be properly performed to avoid any interference in the network. There are two methods of fiber optic splicing -- mechanical and fusion splicing.

Mechanical splicing is ideal for quick or temporary fixes, but not for permanent solutions. Although mechanical splicing is easy to perform because fibers are held together by connectors, the process inherently increase the chance of insertion loss or loss of signal power. Fusion splicing, on the other hand, is commonly used for permanent splicing since it can provide the lowest insertion loss, minimal reflectance and tougher joint between the fibers.

Fusion splicing requires professional certified technicians because it's a very delicate process. When cables are not properly connected during fusion splicing, you may experience issues on the signal. Here are the steps that your certified technician employs when splicing:

  1. Strip the polymer coating around the optical fiber using a mechanical stripping device.
  2. Clean the fiber using a 99.9% isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and lint-free wipes to keep the glass free of any contaminants.
  3. Cleave the fiber. The cleaver notches the fiber and pulls or bend it to create a neat split rather then cut the fiber, this makes the end-face flat and perpendicular to the axis of the fiber.
  4. Fuse the cleaved fibers together using a fusion splicer. Align the ends of the fiber within the splice. Then, melt the fibers with an electric arc to permanently solder the ends together.
  5. Protect the bare fiber by re-applying a coating using a splice protector.
  6. Test your fiber after the fusing process using an optical time domain reflectometer to detect any splice loss or fault in the spliced fiber.

Fiber cables are fragile and require proper handling. Only highly skilled technicians can do this properly. So when you require expansion or new installation of telecommunication networks, contact ElecComm. We have the ability to engineer, manage and perform the construction, splicing, testing maintenance and restoration of fiber, copper, and hybrid fiber-coax telecommunications networks.

Fiber Optic Splicing Delivers Cutting Edge Competitive Advantage

Since the dawn of the internet, the technology has become a staple for every business. Strong and stable internet connection is foundational to gaining cutting edge competitive advantage. Because of this, the business telecommunication network engineers in Plymouth, MA are continuously finding ways to develop and improve their systems. These networks are not just all about having reliable service but also deliver upon the ever increasing need for increased band width. Recent innovations empower telecommunication engineers to employ fiber optic splicing for both new and network enhancement configurations.

Given the growing number of businesses that have become highly dependent on the internet, fiber optic splicing was developed as a solution to such increasing need and demand for a better connection and transmission. Switching from copper wires to fiber optic cables guarantees better bandwidth without jeopardizing the speed of transmission. With the help of these fiber optic cables, increasing bandwidth and keeping the connection stable have become a breeze.

Incorporating fiber optic splicing during telecommunication network design installations is imperative when one wants to achieve faster and higher bandwidth. It is important to note that when switching to fiber optic cables, the assistance and service by the experts in the industry are as equally important. This method is new and should only therefore be performed by a professional. This is to ensure that the cables are perfectly spliced according to the configuration unique to your application. Otherwise, these fiber optic cables or the telecommunication networks as a whole will not serve their purpose.

Fiber optic splicing is a high-demand telecommunication network systems support service. Data communication network degradation simply can’t be tolerated in today’s competitive business environment. For a host of reasons, sub-sections of a data networks become problematic which require professionals to quickly isolate and apply mechanical fiber optic splicing.

Our mechanical fiber optic splicing services here in Boston, MA perform a similar function to conventional cable splicing but with one major difference. Fibers are merge together by mechanical coupling rather than using welding techniques for non-fiber cables. In a mechanical splice, two cleaved fiber tips are mechanically aligned to each other by a special housing. The protective housing ensures fiber ends are steady and enable signals to stream freely between them without difficulty.

Here are the upsides of utilizing mechanical fiber optic splicing:

  1. No power supply is required.
  2. No extra tools are needed apart from a fiber stripper and fiber cleaver
  3. A good alternative in cases where fusion splicing is not viable.
  4. It can be done within a couple of minutes and is ideal for temporary connections.

Due to the higher demand for fast transmission speed, many businesses want to upgrade their communication networks to fiber optic cables. Additionally, fiber optic cables are less susceptible to electromagnetic disturbances when compared to traditional copper wires. Telecommunication networks in Wilmington, MA continue to enhance the capability of fiber optic cable systems.

In order to utilize fiber optics to their full extent, skillful manipulation of cable wires is required during fiber optic splicing and wiring. Optical cables have less malleable glass fibers than copper wires. As a result, they are more frail in regards to wiring tension. When they are overly exposed to stress, this can lead to broken optical fibers which can result in network slowdown.

Fiber optic cable systems feature a standard fixture, arc and loops that are not sighted or applied in their copper counterparts. International electrical code has required this critical method and special licenses are issued to technicians who handle fiber optic cables. If you are looking for licensed personnel to carry out the fiber optic installation for your business, contact ElecComm.
