External Fibre Splicing Service

Total Network Solutions (TNS) has a wealth of experience in fibre splicing and testing, having worked on Openreach network via tier 1 & 2 providers delivering on spine (trunk) routes as well as PON and access networks.


Fibre optic splicing requires some skill as it is important not to damage any fibres during preparation stage of stripping the external sheathing and tube preparation, external joint preparation can take some time depending on whether it is an aggregation node, splitter node or a track joint and how many cables are to be prepared. Hopefully the cabling has not been damaged during the installation phase. We have experience of fibre splicing on both underground and overhead networks, our knowledge also extends to:

  • Ultra lightweight cables (ULW)

  • Overhead fibre drop cables

  • Trunk cables

  • Armoured cables

  • Blown fibre tube installation

  • Aggregation nodes

  • Track joints

  • Primary & Secondary splitter nodes

  • Riser enclosures

External Job Packs 

Working with suppliers, service providers and clients who provide job packs including network diagrams and splicing details, we are able to splice correctly to the information provided to us. On completion we provide as built documentation as detailed in the work instruction pack. 

External Network Testing 

Depending on the clients requirements and their own test procedures we use the latest test equipment to test the network and produce detailed test reports in easy format so the client can understand them, these are produced in PDF format and also .SOR so they can be read on another OTDR. We have enhanced software functions on all our testers but we still use standard OTDR for advanced verification.
