FASTConnect® or FUSEConnect®—Which Should You Choose?

May 15, 2018 Tom Jeffers, PMP

Field-installable connectors provide a convenient method for terminating fiber optic cable at remote job site locations. Traditional epoxy/polish connectors essentially took the entire factory installation process and brought it outside. Today, modern connector technology eliminates the need for hand polishing, providing a low-cost and error-proof method of installation.

This paper will provide a brief background on field-installable connectors and then discuss the advantages and disadvantages of mechanical and splice-on connectors.
