Mostly, the benefits of fusion splicing over mechanical splicing are improved reflectance performance, and lower loss, which is why many Community Access Television (CATV) and telecommunication companies choose to use it for their long haul networks.

However, these same companies may use a combination of both methods in their local cable runs, with fusion splicing being applied in networks in remote locations, critical applications, very high speed segments, radio towers and others that call for minimal reflection. Mechanical splicing is often the preferred choice when a signal loss is not such a significant concern - something that can be said for some of LAN applications.
