What Makes STL Uniquely Fun to Work At?

Sterlite Tech, a company advancing in leaps and bounds, places tremendous emphasis on values. A fundamental ideology is crucial to manoeuvre an organisation towards success. Through a solid value system, Sterlitians are enabling an unprecedented transformation. Not just a digital transformation; it is something as expansive as people and a best-in-class global culture. So, what are Sterlite Tech’s values which have resulted in phenomenal stories? Let’s take a closer look:

Respect & Empathise

The world today is cut-throat. There is competition everywhere whether you are an individual trying to prove yourself, or you are a business entity. But have you ever felt “I am not getting the respect I deserve”? Or maybe “People don’t even try to understand me?” This is as common today, as doing searches on Google.
  • Sterlite Tech believes that the greater the respect for each other, the healthier the organisation. The more one tries to empathise with one another, the greater the collaboration and productivity.
  • Take the story of WINS for example. Women in Networks at Sterlite Tech. The company respects and believes in the dynamism women can offer to business, and is accordingly demonstrating this through multiple initiatives and strategic moves. A perfect example of true corporate humanism.
"Values that define culture; transform times"

Hunger to Learn

  • Just like we eat when our tummy is hungry, Sterlitians fill themselves with knowledge, for their hunger to learn. These folks have a grand appetite through which they not only develop new skills, but also translate them into action and project wins.
  • The organisation believes that unless there is continuous learning and development, people don’t do justice to their true potential. Getting out of the comfort zone and challenging the unknown, is something Sterlitians thrive on.
  • An example of this value becoming a success story was when the team developed India’s first fibre optic sensing solution for Indian defence and security agencies. This was a landmark accomplishment which played a key role in strengthening the border security applications.
"Promise delivered"

Promises Delivered:

  • How many of us have either ourselves made a promise and didn’t fulfil or have seen someone do so? Most of us have at some point. However, Sterlitians are different. And that is because, promises made here, are always valued and fulfilled. Whether to the star-studded list of clients or to its own people, Sterlite Tech stays true to its word.
  • One such instance was when the team delivered the company’s first Digital Commerce & Customer Management (DCCM) solution to a key client, growing activations three times. It was a commitment to enable the stakeholder release several communication features which was actualized through this end-to-end solution. Every promise made here is delivered.
"Values that define culture; transform times"

Keep It Simple:

  • In a world of growing complexities, simple stuff is losing its identity. I mean, there is a reason, that the “KISS” (keep it short & simple) philosophy is being encouraged more and more. The Sterlite Tech folks too, love keeping in all simple. Simplifying tasks and processes have led to countless wins of saving time, cost, and effort.
  • One such piece was when the software team worked on an R&D project for tax optimisation and lower direct taxes. Basis this, the Sterlite Tech software unit has started claiming additional tax benefit of INR 3 crore each year. Sterlite Tech’s approach to breaking difficult challenges into simpler steps and taking one step at a time, has given problem-solving a brand new direction.
"Values that define culture; transform times"
For any organisation to flourish, it is imperative that every employee is able to live with and relate to a certain set of ideals which the organisation stands for. Internally as well as externally, it is this system of value which enables companies win the trust of stakeholders and solidify the brand identity. At Sterlite Tech, this right value system shapes culture and empowers people to understand the larger purpose of the organisation leading to world-class delivery of services and offerings.


What is WiFi?

Put simply, WiFi is a technology that uses radio waves to create a wireless network through which devices like mobile phones, computers, printers, etc., connect to the internet. A wireless router is needed to establish a WiFi hotspot that people in its vicinity may use to access internet services. You’re sure to have encountered such a WiFi hotspot in houses, offices, restaurants, etc.

To get a little more technical, WiFi works by enabling a Wireless Local Area Network or WLAN that allows devices connected to it to exchange signals with the internet via a router. The frequencies of these signals are either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bandwidths. These frequencies are much higher than those transmitted to or by radios, mobile phones, and televisions since WiFi signals need to carry significantly higher amounts of data. The networking standards are variants of 802.11, of which there are several (802.11a, 802.11b, 801.11g, etc.).

What is an Optical Fibre Cable?

An optical fibre cable is a cable type that has a few to hundreds of optical fibres bundled together within a protective plastic coating. They help carry digital data in the form of light pulses across large distances at faster speeds. For this, they need to be installed or deployed either underground or aerially. Standalone fibres cannot be buried or hanged so fibres are bunched together as cables for the transmission of data.

This is done to protect the fibre from stress, moisture, temperature changes and other externalities. There are three main components of a optical fibre cable, core (It carries the light and is made of pure silicon dioxide (SiO2) with dopants such as germania, phosphorous pentoxide, or alumina to raise the refractive index; Typical glass cores range from as small as 3.7um up to 200um), Cladding (Cladding surrounds the core and has a lower refractive index than the core, it is also made from the same material as the core; 1% refractive index difference is maintained between the core and cladding; Two commonly used diameters are 125µm and 140µm) and Coating (Protective layer that absorbs shocks, physical damage and moisture; The outside diameter of the coating is typically either 250µm or 500µm; Commonly used material for coatings are acrylate,Silicone, carbon, and polyimide).

An optical fibre cable is made up of the following components: Optical fibres – ranging from one to many. Buffer tubes (with different settings), for protection and cushioning of the fibre. Water protection in the tubes – wet or dry. A central strength member (CSM) is the backbone of all cables. Armoured tapes for stranding to bunch the buffer tubes and strength members together. Sheathing or final covering to provide further protection.

The five main reasons that make this technology innovation disruptive are fast communication speed, infinite bandwidth & capacity, low interference, high tensile strength and secure communication. The major usescases of optical fibre cables include intenet connectivity, computer networking, surgery & dentistry, automotive industry, telephony, lighting & decorations, mechanical inspections, cable television, military applications and space.
