Fiber Optics

Fusion Splicing

Fusion Splicing (overhead or underground) is the act of joining two optical fibers end-to-end using heat to melt the glass tubing together. The goal is to fuse the two fibers together in such a way that light passing through the fibers is not scattered or reflected by the splice. The region surrounding it are as strong as the fiber itself.

Directional Boring

Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trench-less method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig with minimal impact on the surrounding area.

Single/Multi Mode

Single Mode fiber optic cable, typically used in long distances, has a small diametrical core that allows only one mode of light to propagate. Multi mode fiber optic cable, typically used in short distances, has a large diametrical core that allows multiple modes of light to increase. 

Fiber Connectors

Our technicians will use the above fiber connectors on any inside/outside fiber optic cabling project. LC connectors, adapters and cable assemblies meet the growing demand for small form factor, high-density fiber optic connectivity with simplex, duplex, single mode and multi mode options.

Test Results

There are 2 tiers if fiber optic testing. Tier 1 testing is considered the “basic testing”. Basic testing measures loss, length and polarity. Tier 2 testing is an extended test of the optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR). This test is terminated by our BICSI Certified Technicians.
