Why Fibre Cleaning & Inspection is Critical to Network Performance

There is no doubt that advancements in fibre optic technology have played a major role in reshaping the world of global communications — and helped to overhaul the way we transmit and receive information. Without modern fibre optic technology networks would have struggled to cope with the prolific increase in supply and demand.

However, while fibre optic products have become stronger and more resilient in recent times, there is still a need for considered management and inspection practices. Dirt, dust and debris can all have a major impact on your network performance. In fact, just one contaminated element can cause significant harm to your equipment, and, if left unattended, can result in permanent damage. More than simply being inconvenient, this kind of damage can also be costly to your business.

Regular fibre inspection and cleaning is the easiest and most reliable way to keep your network in good working order. From one-click fibre cleaners to optical fibre identifiers and microscopes, there is a broad range of fibre cleaning tools available on the market that will not only help keep your fibre cables and connectors in top condition, but also allow you to inspect, clean and test them time and time again. At a minimum, we recommend monthly cleaning and inspection of all structured cabling products and associated equipment.

We partner with one of the world’s leading fibre communications manufacturers in the world, Seikoh Giken, whose products can be found from Formula 1 race cars to deep sea cables and mobile devices. With such a diverse range of precision-made products in their catalogue, Seikoh Giken are particularly strong in cleaning and inspection products.
