Fibre optic technicians regularly use fusion splicers to melt and fuse the end-face of an optical fibre with another. The objective of fusion splicing is to join two glass fibres permanently to facilitate continual optical communication without any signal loss. Fusion splicers are indispensable when it comes to installing aerial cables, underwater cables, underground cables and direct-buried fibre optic cables.
When choosing the ideal cabling solutions for your project, indeed, there are two widely used options available today, pre-terminated and field terminated.
OS1 and OS2, short for Optical Single-mode 1 and Optical Single-mode 2, are fibre optic cable standards
Fibre optic cables all have one common weakness: flexibility. The glass core and reflective cladding are essential to signal integrity, and accidentally twisting or bending the cable too much will force attenuation that can ruin your application with signal loss.
In a fibre optic system, there are several small devices and components, to which one might not give due credit and understand their importance.
