Splicing, termination, and testing. Fiber continuity, fiber characterization, and chromatic dispersion testing.

Advanced Fiber Optics : Splicing/Termination/Test

Splicing - ITekFED’s Advanced Fiber Splicing Service utilizes state-of-the-art fusion machines to maintain maximum efficiency and lower splice loss on every fiber span. Our processes and highly skilled teams enable us to deliver superior performance on your network.

Termination - ITekFED utilizes state-of-the-art termination techniques to prevent light loss and decrease dirt and damage along fiber spans. Our team of professionals terminates each fiber optic cable with connectors to meet and exceed all industry standards.

Test - At the conclusion of the tests, ITekFED delivers a detailed report outlining all test results and giving you test gear set-up parameters prior to ordering and deploying your optical networking equipment.

How We Test

Our testing process verifies the integrity and capacity of your fibers through the measurement of key fundamental properties. To do these the following four tests are performed on each fiber span:
  • Fiber Continuity Test - Ensures that a light path exists between two points and qualifies link loss between two nodes.
  • Fiber Characterization Test - Employs an Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) to locate events in a fiber optic span including the actual length, loss/km average, splice loss average and the overall fiber loss.
  • Chromatic Dispersion Test - Determines total dispersion and fiber type of the optical links to discover the maximum speed that currently can be supported.
  • Polarization Mode Dispersion Test - Completes the fiber characterization by highlighting physical disorders including mechanical stress, vibrations, installation twist and torsion, bend radiuses, and aggressive temperature deviations that affect the birefringence of the fiber optic cable.

Life Cycle of a Work Order

We are committed to quality assurance.

Estimate Once our procurement team receives your request for proposal, you are assigned a Procurement Professional. Our Procurement Professional will meet with Senior Engineers and Installation Managers to review every detail of your RFP. Your RFP will then be submitted on time, competitively priced, completed properly, with relevant milestone dates, and all required supporting documents.
Engineer After we are awarded your contract, our Engineers start to prep your work order. Inventory is pulled and assigned, and anything requiring ordering is done so adhering to milestone dates. They are in daily communication with your Procurement Professional, allowing your PP to provide information accurately, without delay.
Deliver Hours before our Installation Team arrives, all equipment will be delivered and moved to the designated staging area. Our delivery team revisits the site often to remove all empty crates and boxes, which is sometimes more than once each day. Even during the installation, your site will remain clean.
Install Our Installation Team will document every step of the process via updates to our Live Gameboard with time stamps, notes, and photos. The average work order quantifies approximately 100 quality control points we hold ourselves accountable, including milestone dates. This allows us to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
Test Testing is rigorous; it is what sets us apart from other companies. We thrive on completing work orders on time, and everything working properly when activated. Hardware, cabling, bandwidth, packet loss, power and more are tested, nothing is assumed to be working. Once testing and quality assurance has met our requirements, the work order is complete.
