QUESTION:

What should attenuation values at the splice points be in fiber-optic cables?

ANSWER:

A good splice should have an attenuation of less than 0.3 dB over the entire distance.  Many factors need to be observed and considered.  The FOC Technical Team can help with specifics in your process.
