Fibre optic cleaning is an important part of enhancing the performance of a fibre optic network, yet it is often overlooked or worse still carried out on unsuitable materials such as clothing.

As demand for more bandwidth increases within Data Centres and Enterprise IT environments, ensuring the cleanliness of fibre connections is vital if performance is to be maximised. Even the smallest dust particle can reduce performance or worse still make the network fail. To prevent this happening end-face cleaning and inspection best practices must improve along with ensuring fibres are cleaned during the preparation of them being spliced.

EDP Distribution supplies cleaning & preparation kits for preparing fibres prior to splicing, keeping splicing equipment and end-faces clean, whilst the range of One-Click® push-type cleaners are available to clean the end-face of connectors quickly and effectively. These provide a low cost and effective way to clean your connectors to maximise performance.
