“All leading telecom players, including Jio, are speeding up their broadband roll-out plans to bringtrue broadband experiences to the last-mile.To enable this massive high-quality roll-out requirement, we are building the capabilities of our deployment partners through global best practices and latest deployment technologies. With players from various states attending CONNfluence 2018, we are adding well-trained hands combined with our expertise to enable BharatNetand state-led roll-outs as well,” KS Rao, CEO-Telecom Services Business, Sterlite Tech.

From Sterlite Tech, industry experts in telecom services focused on work opportunities for telcos’ backhaul network deployment for FTTH,BharatNet-related projects, deployment technologies, process automation including monitoring platformsto improve survey productivity and execution efficiency, role of Sterlite Tech Academy in boosting employabilityfor certified operators/supervisors, among other critical elements of fibre infrastructure creation.

With over 50 representatives from leading companies like Tarun Info Solution, AnanyaInfratech& Realty, JAS Telenet, HP Patel, attending the event, and key participants sharing their success stories based on their earlier experience working with Sterlite Tech, this partner meet was a grand success.

Focusing on right capability development for network deployment, the conference also addressed the needs of engineering students. “With rising data demand, a robust mobile backhaul network is very critical. In India, less than 20 per cent of mobile tower sites have a robust fibre backbone as compared to 70-80per centin the developed countries. Given the importance of this infrastructure, fiberisation of backhaul networks is picking up. To bring about this network transformation, Sterlite Tech Academy has enabled the entire broadband deployment value chain to solve the challenges of low lifetime and low reliability of currently deployed networks,” asserted Rao.

Over 200 engineering students from LNCT, Oriental Group of Institutes, Bansal Group, among other leading collegesin Bhopal,availed the expertise of Sterlite Tech Academy, that enabled them to address the needs of leading telcos, ISPs, state as well as the central governmentfor data network creation.
