STL and Innovation

Udayan, STL’s Open Innovation Challenge, is born of the collaboration between STL, AGNIi - a Government of India backed innovation platform to encourage innovation, Startup India, Invest India and India’s innovation ecosystem to co-create solutions and find breakthrough innovations for solving customer problems and telecom industry challenges.

In the 2019 edition, we had posed four problem statements in the optical fibre deployment domain and invited path-breaking ideas & solutions that challenge conventional methods of handling them. Through this Open Innovation Challenge, we connected with numerous innovators from across India and developed our co-creation model for innovative solutions. The response was encouraging and the proposed solutions truly unique. We narrowed down to six finalists, who we are currently supporting in getting business orders, projects as well as grants from the industry. Some of these innovations have the potential to make an impact and drive value like 50% reduction in surveillance costs and 100% increase in productivity of the OFC network.

With opportunities and businesses multiplying exponentially, innovation stands as the only differentiator – be it people, processes, products or technologies. STL is totally committed to be the agent of change that drives not only creation but also rapid adoption of innovation. We constantly endeavour to support and mentor startups, find solutions, and our Centre of Excellence expedites their field adoption. We are always eager to make the biggest impact with the smallest of augments to our solutions. Udayan goes a long way in establishing STL’s commitment towards encouraging innovation in India that can drive significant efficiencies in project deliveries.

Resonance
Cabling by Longitudinal Vibrations
Disruptive concept of longitudinal vibrations, computed in amplitude for transmission of vibrations. These vibrations propagate cable to slide through duct in frictionless wave motion.
Udayan, STL’s Open Innovation Challenge, is born of the collaboration between STL, AGNIi, Startup India, Invest India and India’s innovation ecosystem to co-create solutions and find breakthrough innovations for the solving tough customer problems and telecom industry challenges. For 2019, we hadposed the following problem statements and invited path-breaking ideas & solutions that challenge conventional methods to tackle them:
PS#1: Non Obtrusive Ducting
PS#2: No Blowing Cabling
PS#3: Preventive surveillance and maintenance of OFC network
PS#4: Non-penetrative utility detection
