Fujikura 18-s Arc Fusion Splicer

Video:

This device fuses 2 pieces of like fiber optic cable into one.  These machines are typically used for terminating  (which is what you see here) or  repairing fiber optic cables.

In our case, we have a 12-strand single mode fiber cable that needed to be terminated.  You buy the connector type you need and just splice them to the cable you ran.  Pretty easy!
