FAQs About Fiber Optics Splicing
Our team at GP Associates, Inc. has extensive experience in fiber optic splicing, and it is a topic that we have received many questions about over the years. To save you some time, we have put together the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions on the topic below.
What is fiber optics?
Before we can explain what fiber optic splicing is, we first need to define the term fiber optics. To put it simply, fiber optics is the science of transmitting information through pulses of light, rather than as electrical signals. Fiber optic cables consist of many fine threads of clear glass, and information is sent down the threads in the form of light pulses. At the other end, the receiving computer or device will decode the light signals back into text, images, video, and other information.
What is fiber optic splicing?
Fiber optic splicing is a process used to join two fiber optic cables together, either in order to lengthen the original cable or create a branching path in the network. Each individual fiber in the cable must be fused together with the next to create a seamless connection, as any break in the line will disrupt the signal, and any distortion in the fiberglass risks altering the information en route.
How does fiber optic splicing work?
While a full, detailed explanation of how fiber optic splicing works is beyond the scope of this article, the basic method works like this: First, the fibers are stripped of their protective coating. Next, the technician will cleave the ends of each cable to create a clean cut. If the fibers are being fused mechanically, the next step is to align each fiber to its neighbor precisely, and then seal everything tightly to ensure that the fibers do not move out of alignment. On the other hand, in fusion splicing, the final steps are to clean the fibers and then use heat to fuse the ends together.
