As Per Latest Information at the FTTH Conference in 2023, STL develops the slimmest fiber ever and displays a micro cable with 288 fibers.

STL’s 180-micron fiber allows for the smallest diameters and highest fiber densities, reducing costs and deployment times.

At the FTTH Conference 2023, STL will also present its integrated optical fiber offering in addition to its signature 180-micron fiber and micro cable. The business’s OPTO-BLAZE and OPTO-BOLT pre-connectorized optical connectivity kits have plug-and-play features for quicker and simpler installation.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Leading provider of optical and digital solutions Sterlite Technologies Limited (STL) recently revealed the creation of its thinnest fiber to date, a 180-micron optical fiber.
  • The smallest diameter cables with the highest fiber density are possible with this cutting-edge fiber.
  • Operators will be able to fit more capacity into the constrained duct area thanks to STL’s high-density microcable, which will also speed up deployment.

Leading provider of optical and digital solutions Sterlite Technologies Limited (STL) recently revealed the creation of its thinnest fibre to date, a 180-micron optical fibre. At the current FTTH Conference 2023 in Madrid, Spain, this ground-breaking fibre was displayed with a next-generation micro cable with 288 fibres capable of being installed in 8 mm ducts. It enables the smallest diameters in cables with the highest fibre densities.

One of the first businesses to develop this market-leading product globally and first in India is STL. This high-density micro cable combines bend-insensitive characteristics with a fully backward-compatible cable architecture to give operators and installers the best of both worlds.

Duct space becomes a valuable resource when service providers add more fiber to the network to densify it. Operators will be able to fit more capacity into the constrained duct space thanks to STL’s high-density micro cable, which will also speed up deployment.

“If it’s a problem for the end users, operators, or installers – it’s a problem worth solving for us,” stated Jitendra Balakrishnan, CTO-Optical Networking at STL. For rollouts to be quick and affordable, we must utilise the limited duct space in high- and medium-density locations very intelligently. We’re going to supply that with our product.

This announcement follows a string of product advances by STL, including StellarTM, an A2 bend-insensitive fibre with full backward compatibility, and India’s first multicore fibre with 4X capacity. The business was also one of the two leaders in the world in introducing IBR (Intelligently Bonded Ribbon) cable technology to major networks.

The 180-micron fibre and micro cable are the company’s star products, but STL is also demonstrating its integrated optical fibre solution at
