FIber Optic Splicing and Copper Wire Splicing Services in Maryland, DC and Virginia
Fiber/copper splicing is a necessary part of any telecommunications project. At Blue Star Technologies, we offer low-loss splicing services that allow your projects to expand without the need for cable reinstallation across an entire facility or community. We pride ourselves on efficiency and clean splices irrespective of the situation, offering the services you need during an installation or repair.
What is Fiber/Copper Splicing?
Splicing is nothing more than connecting two unrelated wires or cables. When wires or cables enter your facility or terminate outside the range of your project, we just splice in a new wire or cable to continue our work.
We offer both mechanical and fusion splicing depending on the situation. Mechanical splices join two cables — for example, when we bury, hang, and otherwise install fiber optic cabling for your facility or community. A simple mechanical splice is a small device that can hold the two cables or wires together.
Remember that mechanical splicing is not permanent, and the work can be upgraded or updated in the future.
Fusion splicing takes more time, but it is more durable. With less attenuation, fusion splicing uses a specialty machine that aligns the fibers perfectly. The fibers are fused or welded together using an electric arc — or form of intense heat — and offer precision and less than 0.1dB loss in most cases.
The Benefits of Our Fiber/Copper Splicing Services
When we offer fiber/copper splicing at Blue Star Technologies, we can splice into any cable to continue a project. We use the most appropriate technique when we tap into entrance facilities as we complete a structured cabling installation. We can continue a massive project by splicing into a line that’s run its course, or we can repair a cable by splicing in a fresh section.
We even offer “temporary” or mechanical splicing as a quick way to bring you back online or test the system while we search for other issues that may arise. For example, you may experience an outage, and we can use a mechanical splice until we uncover the cause of the problem in an attempt to avoid that issue in the future.
We work quickly while using the best materials, devices, and techniques. There’s no need to lay all new cabling when we can splice in to expedite the project, service, or repair.
