STL 160 micron fiber makes the world’s thinnest fiber and cable technology

Ashwini Vaishnav, Minister of Communications, Electronics, Information Technology and Railways presented the IMC 2023.

New Delhi, London and Columbia, SC, October 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — In a proud achievement for the company’s R&D capabilities India, STL [NSE: STLTECH], A leading company in optical and digital solutionsannounced today that it has developed the world’s thinnest telecommunication fiber: 160 micron optical fiber. Appreciate technological innovation Designed and manufactured in India, Ashwini Vaishnav, Union Minister of Communications, Electronics, Information Technology and RailwaysPresented this world leading product at the STL stand at IMC 2023. Unveiling a presentation of 160 micron fiber, the Honorable Minister 'spliced’ or 'joined’ two optical fibers, a highly calibrated process. Two optical fibers are as thin as a hair.

A cable made from STL’s 160 micron fiber is 3 times more efficient than traditional 250 micron fiber. It was conceptualized and developed in-house at STL’s Center of Excellence in Maharashtra, making STL one of the first companies globally to develop and patent industry-leading technology.

as India As the world becomes the fastest growing digital economy, there is a need for dense fiber networks closer to backhaul and customers. Conduit installation accounts for approximately 60% of the total fiber deployment cost, making conduit space a valuable asset Network builders around the world are in a constant quest to reduce fiber volume and fit more capacity into available conduit space.

By packing more capacity into limited duct space with a smaller diameter 6.4 mm cable (~32% reduction compared to 250 micron fiber), 160 microns STL will be revolutionized Deployment, Bandwidth Capacity Y Ecological area of networks. The scale of this innovation’s impact on the broadband landscape India It can be overwhelming. For example, in a large-scale project like BharatNet, where India With approximately 20 million kilometers of fiber cable to be deployed by 2025, using 160 micron fiber instead of the standard 250 micron fiber could reduce deployment time by approximately 15%. This allows the use of smaller diameter pipes, thereby reducing the plastic footprint on the ground by approximately 30%.

„This thin fiber is a significant development and reflects our commitment to innovation and continued R&D efforts in photonics and materials science.” explained Doctor Badri GomatamTeam Technical Manager for STL.

It was an incredibly challenging feat that captured the imagination of opticians around the world. Some of the major challenges in reducing fiber size below 250 microns are increased susceptibility to microbending and increased complexity in the fiber drawing process.

Talking about solving these challenges, Th Doctor Badri He added: „„Through highly calibrated materials and process engineering, we have made a breakthrough in manufacturing processes and glass compositions to achieve microflex sensitivity.”

This product meets telecommunication-grade optical performance standards and complies with the ITU G.657A2 standard. This notice a A series of innovations Developed by our R&D experts, including the world’s first multicore fiber India 4X capacity and 180 micron fiber.

This revolutionary innovation highlights our passion for technology and research and development India On the world map. I really enjoy envisioning the future of digital networks India With this disruptive fiber design,” he said Ankit AggarwalDirector General D STL.
