We can troubleshoot your issue and perform fiber optic cable repair in an expedient manner.
Although the main benefit of placing fiber optic cable underground rather than go with an aerial installation is to reduce the chance for damage, underground cables can still be accidentally cut or affected by other underground conditions such moles or ground shifts from time to time. At GP Associates, Inc., in Knightdale, North Carolina, we offer exceptional fiber optic cable repair services for whatever situation has caused you to need repair.
One of the advantages of working with us is that we are experienced in troubleshooting fiber optic cable problems. While it is obvious where the problem is when you’ve accidentally dug into the cable, it isn’t as easy to determine when it was harmed by mole activity or another cause. With the use of an optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR), we send light pulses through the cable which are deflected at the point of the damage so our technician is alerted to the position of the damage and can get to work on the fiber optic cable repair. Once the break is uncovered, the splicing can be done using the most effective method for the situation and then placed in an enclosure so it can be reburied. Before covering the line once again, we conduct testing to be sure that reflectance, connector loss, and slice loss are not an issue.
If you either know or suspect that you require fiber optic cable repair, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. With our expertise in troubleshooting and expedient repairs, we’ll have your network operational before you know it.
