Term Main definition
Mechanical splice
With respect to fiber-optic cables, a splice in which fibers are joined mechanically (e.g., glued, crimped, or otherwise held in place) but not fused together using heat. Mechanical splice is the opposite of a fusion splice in which the two fiber ends are butted and then joined by permanently bonding the glass end-faces through the softening of the glass, which is fused together.
