FIBER OPTIC SPLICING
Cable splicing connects two optical fibers to create a single continuous line and is used to give your existing system a wider reach and more capabilities. Connecting transmitters and receivers to incoming or outgoing sources typically involves a fiber optic splice to allow the entire system to effectively communicate. Splicing enables continuous growth of your network and allows you to make building additions, connect to new devices and utilize new functions as your needs evolve. To successfully develop your system, two forms of splicing are used for different purposes; mechanical or fusion splicing. Both techniques require careful precision and special tools to maintain the clarity, strength and durability of your fiber optic cables. We offer fusion and mechanical fiber optic splicing and utilize cutting edge, professional equipment to ensure each line is connected seamlessly. Our experienced staff will assess your system to determine what alterations, updates or repairs are necessary, and prepare the ideal connections across your structure. If you are in need of system expansion or your cables have been damaged in renovations, contact Connected Fiber to learn more about fiber optic splicing for your system.
TESTING AND DOCUMENTATION
If your system is running slow, experiencing intermittent outages or certain devices are no longer connected, parts of your fiber optic network may be damaged or disconnected. Damages or breakages can occur for many different reasons. They can be difficult to pinpoint without help. Some construction work, renovations, storms or improper maintenance can affect your network and interrupt or disrupt communications between links. Testing identifies these problems and gives you a holistic view of your current system to make an outline for expansion.

FIBER TO THE HOME (FTTH)
FTTH or Fiber To The Home technology is highly competitive in today’s market. Many providers are now trying to offer high speed broadband to their subscribers and they boast speeds from 10-100 mbps. Some, such as Google Fiber are offering speeds as high as 1 gbps! These systems use a PON (passive optical network topography) which means there are no field installed electrical components. Usually a powerful laser transmits from a head end or hub site to “field installed” splitters. These splitters do what their name implies, they splits the laser to feed 16-64 homes and businesses from a single fiber. These signals are kept separate & secure through each locations IP address. These keep each customers information from getting mixed up. There are drawbacks to such technology. One is energy consumption. Currently in the field, many providers use electrical power to convert optical singles on fiber to RF (radio frequencies) and use copper or coax to get the last mile. Everywhere power is used, a battery backup is also used. The need for these batteries will now be eliminated.
