Fiber Optic Splicing Makes Telecommunication Networks Meet Bandwidth Demands - Boston, MA

Posted by

Most telecommunication networks in Boston, MA are now configured with spliced fiber optics because of the many benefits and advantages they offer. If your business has an existing network and is considering to: add a fiber optic network, or plan to change the entire existing network, ElecComm can help manage your fiber splicing project from start to finish.

Fiber optic splicing is a meticulous, multi-step, process of melding optical fibers together with localized heat. To prepare the fibers for fusion, each fiber is stripped of its protective polymer coating, either chemically or mechanically. After cleaning the bare fibers, they undergo a cleaving procedure which is critical for a successful splice. This procedure requires the use of microscopes in order to perfect a flat, 90-degree cut of both fiber end faces. The fibers are then aligned and fused. Before they receive their protective covering, they undergo several rounds of testing and inspection in order to ensure their reliability.

With the proper splicing techniques, your business will have an improved telecommunication network which will meet bandwidth demands. Conducting fiber optic splicing in your network is an effective way to embrace newer technological advances, move your company forward, and accelerate the pace of your business operations.
