Abstract
This paper describes the cost and performance issues of mass splicing as compared to discrete fiber splicing. There are several variables in the telco decision to deploy mass splicing. Performance and cost factors for both mass mechanical and mass fusion are evaluated compared to currently available discrete fiber splicing technology. New mass splicing systems offer an attractive option for splicing cables of lower fiber counts than previously considered.
