Paper Abstract

Midspan branching of metallic cables has been performed extensively, largely because of the ease of connectorization of metallic cables. Now that metallic cables are being replaced by fiber optic cables, midspan branching of fiber optic cables has become important. This report considers various methods of midspan branching of fiber optic cables. The optimum cable system for ease of midspan branching was selected based on the optical cable structure, minimum fiber length needed at a splice and the Performance of the mechanical splice itself.
