Sterlite Tech launches 5G, FTTH-enabling network services

Thursday 14 June 2018 | 13:30 CET | News
Sterlite Tech has unveiled a bouquet of 5G-enabling fronthaul and FTTH network technologies at ANGA COM 2018. Sterlite Tech has globally debuted the Airblown Micro cable, Micro cable - 4mm, Micro Bullet Series Cable and the Riser Cable at the event. Sterlite Tech’s two new micro cables and air blown cable use existing and new duct systems to accommodate more fibres in a sub-duct network. 

This is designed to enable operators to implement high-density fibre counts within their existing cabling systems, delivering a dedicated optical fibre in a flexible, reliable and upgradeable manner. This service is also designed to enable operators to meet global demands for 5G networks and Fibre-to-the-Point (FTTx) at reduced deployment time. The fourth technology – the Riser Cable – is intended for FTTH in a vertical run shaft or inside buildings as it meets standards for fire-resistance.

The Airblown 2.6mm 24F Micro cable using 200 micron fibre service is designed to enhance air blown installation for FTTx drop for deployments in congested areas and metro applications, supporting installation in micro trenches along roads and pavements. The cable can fit into limited 5/3.5mm ducts to reach longer blowing distances.

The 24F (4 x 6F) Micro cable - 4mm multi-tube micro cable is for use in air blown installations for FTTx feeder and drop and can be utilised for existing and new duct systems. Using compressed air in pre-installed micro ducts, the cable can accommodate more fibres in a given subduct and can be blown up to 2km for long distance links. 

As a 288F (24 x 12F) micro cable with standard 12 fibres per loose tube, the 288F Micro Bullet Series Cable is the latest addition to Sterlite Tech’s Bullet Series and is designed to re-engineer tube material for optimum cable packing efficiency – reducing approximately 10 percent of the cable weight and size, enabling upto 50 percent faster installation in a 14/18mm sub-duct, Sterlite Tech also said.
