FAQs About Fiber Optics Splicing
Our team at GP Associates, Inc. has decades of experience in the fiber optic industry, and one of the many services we offer is fiber optics splicing. Over the years, we have received many questions on this subject, so we have put together the answers to a few of our most frequently asked inquiries to save you some time.
What is fiber optics splicing?
The term “fiber optics splicing” refers to the act of joining the ends of two optical fibers together to extend the connection. Fiber optics splicing is a delicate process that must be done with extreme care, as any misalignment between the fibers will interrupt the signal. Our team has been working in this industry for over 33 years, so you can count on our technicians to get the job done right.
How does fiber optics splicing work?
There are two main methods of fiber optics splicing. In the first method, known as mechanized splicing, optical fibers are simply held tightly together using a sleeve or clamp, with the end of each fiber lining up precisely with the start of the next. In the second method, known as fusion splicing, the ends of the fibers are heated and melted together to physically fuse them, creating an unbroken connection.
When is fiber optics splicing necessary?
Fiber optics splicing is used any time you want to extend a fiber optic connection further or create a branch in the network. Splicing services are also sometimes necessary to restore damaged cables and re-establish an interrupted network connection.
At GP Associates, Inc., we offer fiber optics splicing services for customers in Knightdale and Raleigh, North Carolina, and all along the Eastern Seaboard, including Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, West Virginia, and New Jersey.
