Splicing & Testing
The delivery of high-speed Internet service relies on fiber optic cables. These cables are made up of long strands of glass or plastic that transmit data using pulses of light. In order to connect these cables to customers’ businesses, they must first be spliced and tested. The process of splicing involves joining two lengths of cable together using a special machine. Once the cables are spliced, one of Wide Bands technicians tests them to ensure that they are able to carry data properly. The testing process typically involves sending a signal through the cable and measuring the strength of the signal at various points along the length of the cable. If the signal is too weak, it indicates that the connection is not good and will need to be fixed before service can be delivered. As a result, Wide Band splicing and testing fiber optic cables service is a critical step in ensuring that customers can receive high-speed Internet service.
