25+ Year legacy in Fiber

Since 1995, STL has been connecting the world and its people with the best optical fiber solutions. From the first optical fiber plant in India, STL has state-of-the-art production sites across Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. STL is committed to creating a world with next-generation technologies that transform everyday living.

Optical Fiber Cable

Ribbon Cable

STL RapidRibbon Single Jacket Ribbon Cable offers robust performance and efficiency, integrating high-count mass fusion splicing for various installations. With color-coded optical fibers and gel-free technology, it provides durability and ease of installation, making it ideal for demanding environments.

Multi Loose Tube Cable

STL RapidTube Multi Loose Tube Gel-Free Optical Fiber Cables are designed for versatile applications, including aerial, direct burial, and duct installations. They feature innovative gel-free technology, water-swellable yarns, and an optional corrugated steel tape armor for durability and reliable performance in challenging environments.

Drop Cable

STL RapidDrop flat single jacket fiber optic cable features gel-filled tubes, a thermoplastic jacket, and embedded strength members for easy installation and reliable performance, with a dielectric version available for enhanced safety.

Microduct Cable

STL Micro-Lite Multitube Single Jacket Fiber Optic Cables are typically used in micro duct or aerial drop installation applications. This cable is a stranded micro loose tube cable with optical Fiber placed inside robust buffer tubes stranded around a Fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) central strength member. In addition to optical Fibers, the buffer tubes contain water blocking gel to prevent water ingress in the cable.

Optical Connectivity



Multiport Service Terminal

OptoBlaze is a plug and play solution for FTTH connectivity. The OptoBlaze Multiport Service Terminal (MST) is a device needed in the access network to quickly connect the Fiber Distribution Hub with subscribers. It is available in a 4-port, 8-port or 12-port configuration with or without preloaded splitters.


Connectorized Drop Cable

OptoBolt is pre-connectorized drop cable (one fiber) needed to connect the MST with the subscriber’s residence. Cables are available in multiple lengths and can be supplied as either a single connector with a cable stub end or with a connector on both ends.


SC/APC Pullable Drop Cable

STL OptoPull factory terminated single fiber drop cables are designed to significantly reduce cable installation time required for subscriber connection, thereby reducing the total cost to connect.

Patch Cord and Pigtail

Fiber Optic Accessories

STL offers superior quality patch cord and pigtail in different configurations. They come with high precision connectors, terminated with state of art manufacturing processes and tested using high end optical instruments.


Optical Pedestal

STL OptoPed optical pedestal is built with carrier-grade engineering materials for lasting environmental endurance. These pedestals are designed and tested to withstand the harshest of environmental conditions.

Expanding capacity in
North America

In 2023, STL established its first U.S. cable manufacturing plant in Kershaw County, South Carolina. The plant:

  • is strategically located closer to the customers in the region for speedier delivery,
  • increases manufacturing capacity to meet the growing demand for fiber,
  • minimizes the carbon footprint with in-region logistics and transportation, and
  • creates more jobs in the region.
