Fiber Optic Cable Assemblies, Cablcon Technical Paper

As broadband providers continue upgrading their networks to support high-bandwidth services, increased fiber utilization is essential to meet both bandwidth and cost requirements. Proper fiber deployment has a direct impact on a network’s reliability, performance and cost. It affects network maintenance, operations, expansion, restoration and the ability to rapidly implement new services.

Cablcon offers a wide variety of custom manufactured fiber optic cable assemblies and assembly products. Our solutions meet the needs of service providers to achieve faster time to market, future-proof their networks, streamline service delivery, and lower network up-front and operational costs.

Fiber Assembly End Face Cleanliness (EFC)

fiber-assembly-efc

A clean connection is a requirement for maintaining an error-free fiber optic network. Dust, lint, oil or other foreign particles may obscure an End Face compromising the integrity of the optical signal. Therefore, it is essential that fiber optic users develop the necessary disciplines and habits to ensure clean connections during the manufacturing, testing, installation and maintenance of fiber optic connections. Cablcon fiber assemblies are built to meet or exceed GR-326 Issue 4 standards for End Face Geometry and IEC-61300-3-35 End Face Cleanliness.
