As India’s data demand grows, dense fiberisation is the need of the hour. This is being driven by investments in 5G, FTTH, data centres and next-gen digital networks by private telcos. STL, with its combined capabilities in optical fibres, network design and deployment services and programmatic network management, is uniquely positioned to deliver significant value. In this nationwide project, STL intends to provide a pre-integrated suite of optical fibre cables comprising Armored, Duct and Universal cables complying with varied deployment scenarios and integration services with its unique end-to-end deployment methodology.

These optical fibre cables are a suitable choice for direct burial and duct installations.  The design with Polyethylene outer jacket and unbonded steel tape promotes ease of installation and provides protection against rodents along with improved crush and impact resistance.

STL’s optical connectivity solutions seek to enable the service provider to deliver a world-class customer experience through enhanced scalability, reduced latency, and improved bandwidth. The densely fiberised network is also expected to  form the foundation for many next-gen services such as 5G, FTTH, IoT, enterprise networks, and Industry 4.0.
