- FTTx MANTRA™ converges the best of software-defined networks, optical communication products and hyper-scale rollout practices, enabling faster time-to-market and future scalability
Amsterdam, The Netherlands – March 13, 2019: Sterlite Tech [BSE: 532374, NSE: STRTECH], a global data network solutions company, today announced the launch of its Fibre To The x (FTTx) solution – FTTx MANTRA™ – at the FTTH Conference 2019 (#FTTH19) in Amsterdam. Built as an end-to-end solution, FTTx MANTRA™ empowers communication service providers to swiftly roll out FTTx networks at massive scale, near-zero response time and great agility at optimised costs.
Over 55 per cent of the 7.6 billion people in the world are using the Internet today. As they use more and more devices, content and apps, global annual IP traffic is growing exponentially, and is expected to reach 7 Zettabyte (one Zettabyte is a trillion Gigabytes) by next year – a seven times increase from 2015. Given this, user experience is now more important than ever. As users demand ultra-high bandwidth and extremely low latency, it is critical that fibre reaches every end point.
Sterlite Tech’s FTTx MANTRA™ – Massive Agile Network Transformation – is a software-defined FTTx network solution for service providers to give enhanced experience to their users, at faster time to market and optimised capital and operational cost.
Optimised for agility, scale and latency, the solution combines the best of Sterlite Tech’s technology capabilities:
- Network design – Programmable network design
- Optical communication products – Bend insensitive fibre technology, high-fibre count micro module cables, and pre-connectorised FTTx kits
- Hyper-scale network roll out – Sterlite Tech’s unique Lead360 approach
“FTTx MANTRA™ integrates Sterlite Tech’s unique silicon-to-software capabilities across programmable networks, optical communication products, network design services and rollouts, and software solutions,” said Ankit Agarwal, CEO – Products, Sterlite Tech. “We launched this solution late last year for a select set of customers, and with continued positive feedback, we have now customised it for our global customers.”
While Sterlite Tech’s bend-insensitive fibre technology and pre-connectorised FTTx kits provide a technology anchor for FTTx networks, its algorithmic design capability brings ubiquitous connectivity to homes and enterprises.
