Optical Connectivity Solutions

In this era of digitization, data has the power to change the world.
While data continues to fuel innovation and technological
advancement, the world has started to witness unprecedented
growth in internet connectivity.

Lead 360
Hyper-Scale Networks

The world is going hyperscale. Hyperscale networks will create
superfast digital highways, fuel digital revolution and connect
billions of humans and devices. Hyperscale networks demand
massive fiberization.

Next-Generation Scalable Network

With an aim to create multi-gigabit access networks, Telcos and
Enterprises across the globe are looking to build converged data
networks that are reliable, scalable, resilient, and can support
wireless and wired connectivity

Future–Generation Enterprise Networks

Aging networks create several challenges - including lesser revenue,
higher failure rates, lack of standardisation, interoperability, and
compromised network security. Legacy networks severely limit the
ability to respond to changing customer expectations, and hence
reduce the business opportunities.

Delivering an advanced and highy secure Data Centre ecosystem
Designing & building next-gen Data Centres

This case study enumerates how STL built a smart next-gen communication infrastructure to enable a platform for new-age technologies and customised enterprise applications, with an advanced security ecosystem for one of the largest defence organisations. In the journey of concept, design, implementation and commissioning, STL mitigated several challenges and built 12 data centres, spanning across 33 civil locations, covering 131k sqft of built-up area.

Legacy data centres needed to be modernized to achieve mission-critical outcomes for the defence client. This entailed a sophisticated design and planning exercise to deliver an advanced, integrated and highly secure data centre ecosystem.


  • Fragmented data ecosystem
  • Remote locations spread out over difficult terrains, from mountainous to far-off areas
  • Delivering on top-notch information and cyber security
  • Complex DC control and management systems
  • Co-ordinating with more than 1k labour force across multiple layers


STL took the challenge of building next-gen data centres along Indian coastal borders including Lakshadweep & Port Blair islands. 12 data centres were constructed including four main data centres, one disaster recovery centre, four near-line data centres, and three satellite data centres.

The data centres were built using MPLS Segment -routing, leaf-spine architecture, multi-layered redundancy failovers, with geo-redundancy for natural disasters and wartime situations.
The data centres were equipped with multi-layer technology-led perimeter security to prevent any sort of physical or Cyber-attacks not only at present but also in future .
These data centres enabled a plethora of applications at various locations:
  • Private cloud with multi-tenancy to host IaaS, PaaS (at Karwar)
  • Unified Network Management System (NMS) (between Mumbai and Vizag) for central monitoring of assets from the Network Operating System (NOC), fault management & assets patch management
  • Security management (SIEM) for centralised events/incidents policy monitoring from SOC (between Vizag & Delhi)
  • Content Delivery Network (CDN) for central repository & streaming of live events, conferences, seminars, images, and classroom lectures, etc. (between Delhi & Kochi)
  • Big data analytics to enable mission critical analysis (at Mumbai)
