About Mary Ann Davey

Mary Ann has been involved in the optical fiber world since 1983, almost since the inception of modern fiber (approx. 1980). She cumulates over three decades of experience in all aspects of cleavers and splicers and is considered an expert in this field.

She joined Nortel (formerly Northern Telecom – NT) in 1982 as an electronic assembler. The following year Mary Ann moved to the Fiber / Cable dept. and started making optical fiber using the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) process.

In 1985 Mary Ann transferred to the Installation Products (IP) department where she assembled outside plant equipment such as stable light sources, splice protection packages, manual fiber splicers and automated stripper cleavers.

The Automated Fusion Set (AFS) was created in NT’ Ottawa R&D in 1986 and started being manufactured in the IP department in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1987. Mary Ann was part of the original group that assembled and repaired AFS there.

In 1990 Mary Ann was promoted to Repair co-ordinator for the IP department where she was responsible for technical assistance, Customer service and repair scheduling. In 1994 she was part of the team that moved the product and technology from Saskatoon to Montreal where she trained local personnel.

Mary Ann joined SIECOR Montreal when they purchased the product line from Nortel in 1995. She supported the IP department until the product was discontinued in 1996 by SIECOR and the repair operation was sold to OrbTech Fiber Optic Systems.

Mary Ann has been self-employed and acting as a Fiber Optic consultant since 1996, mainly for OrbTech where she co-ordinated the repair department until the end of 2000. She then decided to start her own business to repair and maintain fiber optic installation equipment: DOERS (Davey Optical Equipment Repair Service).
