The main attraction at OFC 2018 is Sterlite Tech’s Smarter FTTH Plug and Play kit for telecom operators and ISPs. It is designed to minimize the current installation time from weeks to a few hours, and the need for skilled manpower for splicing and cable slack issues for telecom operators and ISPs.

“With fiber moving closer to the point of consumption, FTTH deployments in North America are growing at record speeds. Our Smarter Plug and Play kit provides industry leading implementation speeds and reliable connectivity at the lowest total cost of ownership,” said Ankit Agarwal, Director (Telecom Products), Sterlite Tech.

Elaborating on the technology behind the kit, Dr Badri Gomatam, CTO, Sterlite Tech, said, “Our breakthrough FTTH Plug and Play solution has a fully modular design. The solution can be customised to enable both centralised and 2-stage splitting architecture as per the deployment requirements of ISPs and telecom service providers.” All passive enclosures have very stringent ingress protection feature, compatible with pole and wall-mount installations, giving additional flexibility. A high rodent-resistant compact cable made with Sterlite Tech’s bend insensitive fiber BOW LITE PLUS has been used in this award-winning solution.
