There are two ways to splice fiber optic cable, fusion splice and cold splice. Fusion splice requires a fiber optic fusion splicer, the cost of fusion splicer is from US$2000 to US$40000. For cold splice, a fiber optic mechanical splice is needed, its unit cost is from US$1 to US$10, good for occasional fiber splice.
Fiber optic cable, fiber optic modem, and fiber optic router are need for fiber optic internet.
Fiber optic drop cable direct signals into house, then modem will build a bridge between fiber optic connection and devices, which can convert fiber optic signals into electric signals. A wireless router can distribute internet to different devices, and realize wireless connection. Nowadays, most of the modems have combined with wireless routers.
Usually a fiber optic cable is made of optical fiber, KELVAR and jacket. So we will need cable stripper, KELVAR scissors, fiber cleaver, and fiber splicer to splice fiber optic cables.
There are different type of tools can test fiber optic cable, such as optical power meter, PON optical power meter, OTDR, VFL and optical fiber identifier. Different device can test different parameters, you can chose according to your needs.
