Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the subject of the reliability of optical fiber splices. This is a subject of great importance to the telecommunications industry, which is already heavily dependent on fiber in inter-exchange and inter-office portions of the network and is beginning to invest in fiber in the distribution portion of the plant. As Fiber in the Loop systems [1] are deployed, the network will increasingly require splicing activity in construction, grooming, and maintenance. It will be necessary to be able to splice rapidly, cheaply, confidently (in difficult environments), and reliably in order to succeed in the telecommunications business of the future.
