    Fibre termination

    Hi we are looking at companies that do fibre termination in Devon. We need to run a new fibre cable between 2 cabs but can't terminate it. Does anyone know of any good contacts?

    Thanks in advance

    You mean that you don't have one of these... AFL Presents the Fujikura 70S Fusion Splicer - YouTube I thought everyone had one in their tool bag nowadays?

    Only Joking... a decent installer will have one of these and will knock out 4 joints in no time, it doesn't cost anywhere near as much as it used to the ends are all pre made they just strip the cable and splice a pre made end onto it.

    Our contractor does one every few minutes, your problem is your in Devon and you only have a couple of joints to splice - it doesn't cost much more to have 16 ends spliced than it does 4.
    The most expensive bit is the labour and tool hire. It normally costs us about £500 to have them come out and join a cut fibre.

    So the pre made solution suggested may well be your easiest option especially if you can pull it yourself.

    @m25man would you be able to pm me the details of the contractor please? Where are they based?

    I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing is happening. I'm assuming by the fact that my copper change is bouncing off my screen, it costs a little more than £2.51?

    remember with preterm you have a large "sock" encasing the pre termed ends, usually requires big holes in walls

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the information. Not seen pre terminated fibre before. As it's only a shortish run (about 30m) we are going to go with pre terminated fibre. With regards to the patch panel for it, do you need anything special? Or will a standard panel be ok?

    Videk do some pre terminated cables that are designed to be pulled in easily and without much risk of damaging the cable. They are more expensive than standard pre terminated though
