Wave-2-Wave continually looks for ways to help preserve the environment. An important philosophy instilled in our business practice is the idea of “recycle, reduce, reuse”. One way to reduce waste and reuse material is to utilize Wave-2-Wave’s Fiber Resorting Services. For example, fiber optic can be cleaned, tested and restored to original factory standard; which not only saves money, but helps the environment by cutting down on waste material. Studies have shown that 70-80% of used cable can be cleaned and resorted to the standard specifications.
Re-sorting services can save customers over 75% as opposed to buying new cable. In addition, resorting services cut down on pollution and less PVC material in companies’ junkyards. Wave-2-Wave’s resorting service involves carefully cleaning and testing based on Telcordia GR-326 CORE standard. The testing and re-sorting procedure involves four important steps: Cleaning, Visual Test, Optical Test, and Re-Packaging. Fiber Resorting Standard Services include the following: clean, test, sort by length and connector type, cover the connector with dust caps, and package. Optional Fiber services include the following: removing the label, adding label, clean cable.
