    Step#2: Draw or Mark the Wall to Be Cut
    After identifying the right place to mount your wall plate, you need to mark it. Draw or mark it out using a pencil. The dimensions should be those of your fiber outlet box, so that it fits perfectly without leaving out too much space.

    Step#3: Cut Out the Hole
    Using a keyhole saw, cut out the area you had marked. Follow the lines keenly and make sure that the hole is as smooth as possible.

    Step#4: Insert the Fiber Optic Wall Plate
    Insert your fiber wall plate into the hole. If you made the right cut, it should be easy to fit the plate into the hole. If it does not, however, fit, you might need to do a few small adjustments to ensure that the fiber optic socket fits well into the hole.

    Step#5: Screw Up the Plate to Secure It
    You need to secure the plate, so it’s safe and firm in the hole. Simply screw it into the drywall and tighten the screws. You should ensure that it does not move loosely within the hole as it might cause disruptions.

    Those are the simple but effective steps of making sure that your fibre termination box fits into its rightful place on the wall well. You can do the installation yourself or seek the help of a technician for ease of work and safety as well.

    18.What Are the Possible Fiber Termination Techniques with a Fiber Wall Socket?

    You can use two possible termination techniques when using a fiber wall socket. These techniques are:

    Direct Termination Technique
    This technique works if you have field installable connectors. It is normally the best option if you get complete kits.

    You won’t have to follow any other lengthy procedure. Just do the termination directly and the process is over.

    Splicing
    You can splice a fiber socket wall to factory-terminated pigtails. As long as they match and are compatible, this termination technique will help you get the job done as quickly as possible.

    The option you use normally depends on the type of fiber wall socket that you have at hand.

    For a great majority of wall sockets, direct termination is the way to go. However, note that both termination techniques work well when you follow their right procedures.

    19.What Are the Different Signal Losses that Can Occur Due to Improper Use of Fiber Optic Socket?

    Fiber Wall Socket
    Figure 20 What Are the Different Signal Losses that Can Occur Due to Improper Use of Fiber Optic Socket?

    Signal loss or fiber loss are common with almost all fiber optic products. They often occur due to different reasons.

    The main cause of these losses are poor connection or splicing techniques. With that said, here are the different types of losses to expect with fiber optic socket:

    Intrinsic Fiber Losses
    These are losses that originate from within the fiber wall socket. They result from faulty components. The faults distract the transmission of signal from one component to another.

    Other common causes of intrinsic signal losses are manufacturing defects, structural inconsistencies, and poor quality of material, especially on the internal parts of the socket.

    You can avoid intrinsic fiber or signal losses by simply getting high-quality fiber optic termination boxes. You should also make sure that the termination during installation is correct. With that you won’t worry about this type of signal loss.

    Extrinsic Fiber Losses
    You cannot use Bwinners fiber optic socket panel as the only product in the network. You have to splice it with other vital components that you need to complete a network.

    If you have been splicing for quite a long time, you must have noted that no matter how best you do it, losses must at some point occur. They include insertion and connector losses.

    Since these signal or fiber losses do not originate directly from the fiber wall socket, they are considered external hence, extrinsic.

    As a wrap up, while losses can be inevitable, excess losses mean poor transmission of signal and communication within your network. You should, therefore, try your best to ensure that you minimize or stop them completely.

    20.How Do I Reduce Signal Losses Emanating from Fiber Wall Socket?

    Fiber Wall Socket
    Figure 21 How Do I Reduce Signal Losses Emanating from Fiber Wall Socket?

    As already explained, signals losses emanating from fiber wall socket can be from intrinsic or extrinsic factors. You should, however, note that irrespective of the source, any signal loss means a reduction in the performance of your fiber network.

    Here’s how you can reduce signal losses:

    Use the Best Methods to Install
    Bwinners Fiber wall sockets often come with different installation methods. If you want to avoid signal losses, make sure that you follow the best methods. The best methods are those you get from the manufacturer.

    Use High Quality Cables to Complete the Connection
    If you find that there are huge losses emanating from the termination points in the fiber rosette box, cables might be the problem. You should use high-quality cables if you want to avoid such problems.

    Minimize Joints within the fiber optic wall socket
    A high number of Joints can also be the reason behind signal loss. It, therefore, makes sense to try to reduce the number of joints. You can reduce them by using multimode connector types, so you do have to make several connections within or around the fiber optic wall socket.

    Make Use of Qualified Connectors
    Qualified connectors usually have lower insertion loss. So, get connectors that have an insertion loss that is less than 0.3dB. With such connectors, you won’t have problems of signal loss from connections within your fiber optic termination boxes.

    Strictly Follow Splicing & Termination Instructions
    Bwinners fiber wall sockets have their specific instructions when it comes to splicing and termination points around them. If you do not follow them, you will experience different issues including signal loss.

    Let a Qualified Technician Do the Work
    Using a fiber wall socket and completing other connections near it is not a simple do-it-yourself job. It needs to be done by a qualified technician if you want to avoid mistakes including signal losses. You should not let anyone also tamper with it.

    Protect the Fiber Wall Socket
    If you protect your fiber wall socket from corrosion, mechanical damage, and lightning, you are going to stop further problems including signal losses. So, put in place protection measures that will keep your fiber optic termination boxes safe.
