What Ever Happened to the Mechanical Splice?

While mechanical splice connectors have come a long way and are an ideal field termination method for connectorizing fiber, we rarely hear much anymore about mechanical splicing as a means for joining fibers along a link – even though it eliminates the need for expensive fusion splicing equipment. Fusion splicing, where cleaved fibers are aligned and fused by an electric arc, provides the lowest loss and strongest, most reliable joint.
