  • Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method
    Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method Betsy Conroy & Brian Duval, Siemon Company Recorded: Jan 30 2018 57 mins
    There are many considerations when it comes to choosing your fiber termination method – from the number of connections and the application being supported, to performance and overall required time to go live. While pre-terminated fiber solutions offer significant benefits in terms of factor-terminated performance and ease of deployment, they do require proper planning and predetermining of lengths, as well as longer lead times. Choosing a field termination method like fusion splicing or mechanical splice connectors comes with its own set of additional considerations, including cost, required skill set and labor efficiency. This webinar will examine the various types of fiber termination methods available today, providing pros and cons of each method and basic considerations to help you choose the fiber termination that’s right for your specific fiber deployment, including key questions to ask and termination time comparisons and analysis.

    This webinar is approved for one BICSI CEC.
