Fiber Splicing & Testing:

Fiber optic splicing and testing are important processes in the deployment and maintenance of fiber optic networks.

Fiber optic splicing is the process of joining two or more optical fibers together to form a continuous optical path. This is achieved using specialty equipment to precisely align and fuse the end faces of the fibers so that light can pass through with minimal loss. We use only perform fusion splicing, not mechanical or epoxy, as we’ve found the quality of those types of splices tend to degrade much more quickly than when they are fused.

Fiber optic testing is the process of evaluating the performance of a fiber optic network, as well as to verify the integrity of the splicing to ensure that it meets the customer’s specifications. This includes measuring the optical power and loss, as well as evaluating the optical return loss and optical time-domain reflectometry (OTDR). These tests provide important information about the network's overall performance and can help identify any issues or problems that may affect its performance.

Both fiber optic splicing and testing require specialized equipment and trained personnel. GSP Networks’ fiber splicing crews are certified to do so, and we make sure follow industry standards and best practices to ensure that the splices and tests are performed accurately and reliably. These processes play a crucial role in maintaining the performance and reliability of fiber optic networks, and are essential for providing high-speed and high-quality telecom services.
