Sterlite Tech has launched a high-speed 5G ready network solution named FlashFWD at India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2017, being held in New Delhi, India.
Globally, as data consumption continues to grow exponentially, there is a need for new, dense networks that enable extremely high data speeds and low response times. 5G is expected to generate about eight times more data traffic than an average 4G connection, with 15 per cent global population expected to have 5G subscriptions by 2021-22. In India too, applications such as Aadhar-based e-payments, e-authentication and e-commerce are growing manifold, transforming the everyday living of citizens. Enabling these emerging demand trends, Sterlite Tech has launched its 5G ready network solution FlashFWD which has the high fibre density in a compact cable package possible.
The new FlashFWD 5G Series solution features multi-tube single jacket ribbon optical fibre cable. The solution comes in two variants FlashFWD 864F ribbon cable with six tubes and FlashFWD 1152F ribbon cable with eight tubes.
This cable category, with over 50 times the capacity of the typical cable deployed in India, is NABL certified and complies with the latest global standards of IEC.60794 series, ANSI/ICEA S-87-640, Telcordia GR-20, ITU-T Recommendations, and is CPR approved for LSZH versions.
