Addressing this requirement and to accommodate multiple cable needs wherein telecom service providers could cater to their customers demands

Sterlite Tech developed the innovative 5G Ready Network Solution named FlashFWD with 864 fibre count to optimise cable usage, lower TCO, provide future-proofing, and address the needs for effective utilisation of networks

In its 864F version, FlashFWD features 6 ribbon tubes to address demands of customers in high network congested areas in the present and in the future. The USPs of the cable includes easier distribution, branching and splicing of fibres in the form of ribbon tubes as compared to loose tube design. 864F bre count cable proved as the first step towards growing needs of high data demand in India.

Our customers reaped its benefits of armoured designs and efficient use of limited duct space due to high fibre count. With special low-bend sensitivity, the cable provides high bandwidth and excellent communication transmission property. The all new FlashFWD category is from NABL Certified plant and complies with the latest global standards of IEC.60794 series, ANSI/ICEA S-87-640, Telcordia GR-20, ITU-T Recommendations, CPR approved for LSZH versions.
