- The unique Bend Insensitive Fibre ensures minimal optical loss and assured first-time right installation.
Delhi, October 15, 2019: STL [BSE: 532374, NSE: STRTECH], a global data networks innovator, launched Stellar Fibre
on day one at India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2019, in the presence of Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union
Minister of IT and Communications. Stellar Fibre is a path-breaking solution that will power the nextgen ultra-high definition future. The leading edge innovation from STL’s optical design solutions
guarantees best-in-class data transfer, negligible data loss even with high fibre bends, and
compatibility with all fibres in use today.
Stellar Fibre is one of a kind in the current industry to have a bend insensitive (ITU-T G.657.A2) fibre
design that has a mode field diameter (MFD) of the size of a legacy ITU-T G.652.D fibre. This feature
enables service compatibility with existing networks which are provisioned with the legacy fibre, while
bringing in the next-gen advantages of macro bend insensitivity. This makes Stellar Fibre an ideal
choice for an existing network’s capacity enhancement or new network provisioning for Metro and
Long Haul or Fibre to the X (FTTx) application.
Commenting on the launch, Ankit Agarwal, CEO-Connective Solutions, STL said, “We believe Stellar
Fibre is an ideal product for the network operators of today who endeavour to provide their customers
with new-age, enhanced experience. Dense and Deep fibre networks is the need of the hour and we
hope Stellar Fibre can work as a cornerstone in making this transformation happen”
Stellar’s unique geometry ensures minimal splice loss and first-time right installation. This makes the
fibre to be an installer’s delight. Simulations at STL’s Centre of Excellence suggest 10+ years increase
in network lifetime on using the new bend insensitive fibre. It’s resilience to cuts and accidental
bends brings down the network operations cost by a significant amount, making it the fibre of choice
for network operators world-over.
