Are you planning a telecommunications network project in the near future? If so, you may be tempted to handle the work with your own team and equipment. This may not, however, be the best course of action. In fact, the best thing you can do is hire professional telecom construction companies in Ohio. Even if all the job requires is joining two fiber optic cables to one another, it is wise to hire professionals.
What do Professionals have to Offer?
When you hire telecom construction companies in Ohio, you will have professionals who are experienced and properly trained on the two methods of fiber optic splicing, including mechanical splicing and fusion splicing. Since the professionals are adept in using these methods, they can help you determine which option is right for the job based on your long and short term performance and economic goals.
About Fusion Splicing
This method ensures two or more optical fibers are precisely aligned and permanently affixed to provide a continuous connection between them that ensures lower light loss during the transmission process. This method usually includes several steps to prepare, cleave, fuse and protect the fiber.
About Mechanical Splicing
With this method, you don’t have to weld the optical fibers to keep them in place. Instead, this method uses various alignment devices to hold the fibers in the proper position. It also uses a process called self-contained assembly, instead of a permanent bond. This results in a common centerline that allows light to pass from one of the fibers to another.
If you need any type of fiber optical work done, working with the professionals at telecom construction companies in Ohio is the best solution. If you have questions or need more information, please contact the professionals at Kenneth Myers Construction Co. Inc. by calling 419-639-2051.
