Digital networks integrator Sterlite Technologies Ltd announced its 5G-from-India offering at the India Mobile Congress event 2021 on Friday.
“With its purpose of transforming billions of lives through digital networks, a DNA of innovation and a portfolio of more than 630 patents, STL is building deployment methodologies and a 5G architecture that ensures seamless wired and wireless connectivity,” the official statement read.
In the statement, the company further mentioned that its 5G portfolio includes optical, radio and deployment solutions. STL is one of the first indigenous companies with 100% homegrown 5G-ready solutions.
The company expects that the end-to-end nature of solutions will fundamentally alter the game for super-fast and high-quality 5G deployments, STL managing director Ankit Agarwal said in the statement.
“We are launching our comprehensive portfolio of products at the IMC 2021 and expect that the end-to-end nature of our solutions will fundamentally change the game for super-fast and high quality 5G deployments.
We are a part of the world’s largest digital inclusion drive and are confident that with our digital networking solutions, we will transform billions of lives not only in India but across the globe,” Agarwal said.
Since high capacity in limited duct space is crucial for 5G networks, STL has developed Opticonn, its optical connectivity solution that includes high fibre count (6912 fibre) Celesta Intelligently Bonded Ribbon [IBR] Cable with Stellar bend-insensitive fibre and optical interconnect products like IBR compatible Splice enclosures for fast and seamless installation and quality.
Densification of the wireless access networks with open source and programmable, radio equipment will be fundamental to 5G and, therefore, on the radio side STL has launched its Accellus solution that includes 5G multi-band radios co-developed in partnership with Facebook Connectivity, O-RAN compliant indoor small cells, outdoor WiFi6 radio solutions and RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC).
Along with its 5G solutions, STL is creating a talent base for seamless and timely 5G deployment. STL Academy, an initiative by the company, has recently signed an MoU with NASSCOM to undertake relevant skills upgradation via training program/s in emerging technologies like 5G for 100,000 youth towards making India a digital talent hub.
