With unmatched innovation and performance, only Sticklers™ products deliver perfectly clean ports, jumpers and splices at the lowest possible cost-per-cleaning.

Today’s fiber networks are the enabling technology of the networked world. But even the most advanced fiber networks can be threatened by contamination. It is estimated that nearly 16 percent of all installed fiber links have and initial system failure due to contaminated end-faces.

This means ensuring that all connections including ports, splices, end-faces, patch cords and pigtails must be perfectly clean. Clean fiber connections avert potential problems such as back-reflection (signal is diverted back to its source), insertion loss (weakened signal), or a total system shut down. This is especially important with a 5G network because every milliwatt of power is necessary for uninterrupted connectivity and top-speed performance.

It is essential that network providers have simple-to-use fiber cleaning tools and methods for installation or maintenance. Otherwise cleaning is skipped and the network suffers. Sticklers™ cleaners are engineered for the field technician working out of a truck.

Sticklers™ light-weight, portable cleaning tools that give you “go anywhere” cleaning including heavy-static environments and tight spaces. Use inside data centers, telco central offices, cable head-ends, broadcast centers and manufacturing pants. They are also ideal for FTTH (Fiber to the Home), FTTA (Fiber to the Antenna) and OSP (Outside Plant) construction zones where dust, rain and snow are common problems.
