Fiber Optics | Fusion Splicing & OTDR Testing

Communication Construction & Engineering provides the comprehensive array of fiber optic construction services. Aside from constructing networks from scratch, we also test and expand existing networks.

Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing, is the joining of two ends of fiber optic cable using focused heat. It takes incredible precision to accurately join two ends of fiber optic cable. Once joined, the signal traveling through the cable must pass through without reflecting from its path. If a fiber optic cable is not properly spliced, the signal will reflect back toward the source and be corrupted or lost.

At Communication Construction, we place critical importance on accuracy when constructing or improving a fiber optic network. We use the latest in Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing technology to ensure your fiber optic cables are fused with impeccable precision. Fusion splicing is a complex process with many variables, and our certified technicians are guaranteed to handle the work with expertise.

Once Fiber Optic Fusion Splicing is complete, we perform OTDR Fiber Optic Testing. Fiber optic cables are incredibly sensitive. The OTDR, or Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer is the device used to test the percentage of signal lost in transit within a fiber optic cable. At Communication Construction & Engineering, we use OTDR Fiber Optic Testing to ensure the signal passing through the cable is not corrupted in any way. The greater percentage of the signal that is refracted toward the source, the greater the loss of the signal will be. The ultimate goal is to have the signal pass through the cable without being reflected or interrupted. OTDR Fiber Optic Testing makes sure your goal is achieved.
