Terminating fibres

Been busy terminating a few new fibre runs throughout the Zoo. This particular run goes from the Taj (Crocosium) through to the Dingo Diner and then onto the Snake Shed and Compound. 12 cores to the Diner, 6 cores each to the shed and compound. Single mode glass fibre is used throughout however we may start using Multi-Mode within buildings.

Terminating fiber isn't that difficult these days. Basically you just need cutters and strippers, cleaning wicks, guillotine and fusion splicer. We hire the fusion splicer and guillotine and purchase pre-made tails with ST connectors from AFC. Ends up being around $50 an end instead of the usual $100 an end for a contractor.
