Fiber Optic Cable Splicing

Fiber Splicing

Optical fibers may be connected to each other by connectors or by joining two fibers together to form a continuous optical waveguide, called splicing. The most common splicing method is fusion splicing, which melts the fiber ends together with an electric arc. For quicker fastening jobs, mechanical splicing is used.
