A little while back, I posted about the differences between coaxial and fiber-optic cable. One of our folks out in Southern California saw the post and brought this to my attention: a video of one of our technicians demonstrating how we splice fiber optic cable when it’s gotten cut or broken. I thought it was pretty interesting, maybe you will, too. Note that the embedded video is TINY here, too — click to see the video in full size here.
I really have fun figuring out how cable works and where it comes from, and I’m learning a lot by digging all this stuff up. If there’s some aspect of this technology that you’d like to learn about, please let me know in the comments.
