We were called out to an emergency fibre optic repair. A number of building’s fibre links had been disconnected. After some testing and some investigating, a damage section was located on a 48 core OS2 backbone fibre. A solution was agreed and arranged to be done out of hours on a Saturday to reduce further down time on the network.
The damaged segment of fibre was cut out and a new piece was pulled in. The new fibre was then spliced onto the existing in an IP rated external splice box. To get the best results in this join we used a method called fibre optic fusion splicing. This type of join would have the least amount of loss possible. We then retested the fibres to confirm the fibre optic repair was good and each 48 cores passed.
