Fiber Optic System Design & Installation in metro New Orleans


Let Marvin Electric design & install your fiber optic "network backbone"


The fiber optic infrastructure serves as the backbone of a building’s network, and just as you would only want your spine handled by a specialist, your fiber optic system should be designed and installed by the best. Marvin Electric has the training, expertise, and experience to handle all of your fiber optic needs.


Our Fiber Optic Services Include:

  • Indoor/Outdoor Systems

Indoor fiber optic systems experience less stress due to temperature and mechanical pressures than outdoor ones, but need to be fire retardant and otherwise specialized for indoor placement. The components for indoor and outdoor systems are highly specialized, and Marvin Electric has specialists to develop both types of fiber optic systems.


  • Fusion Splicing

Fusion splicing is one means of joining two fiber optic cables together. Often considered the most reliable means of adhering one of these cables to another, this technique requires highly precise cable alignment and top-notch equipment under the supervision of an experienced electrician.



  • Connectorization

In some cases, using fiber optic connectors makes more sense than splicing the fiber optic cables, particularly in parts of the system that technicians will need to access more frequently. Marvin Electric will determine where these types of connections may be necessary and install them accordingly.



  • OTDR Testing

Optical Time Domain Reflector (OTDR) Testing is the most comprehensive means of testing the integrity of your fiber optic systems. OTDR testing verifies splice loss, measures length, finds faults, and assesses the reliability of the cables. Marvin Electric will test the fiber optic system when installation is complete to ensure that the system is up and functioning, as well as to provide a base OTDR test for later servicing or system changes.
