Sterlite Tech (BSE: 532374, NSE: STRTECH) has unveiled FTTx MANTRA, which it describes as an end-to-end FTTx-as-a-service offering that combines connectivity products, network design expertise, software and virtualization capabilities, and analytics. Use of FTTx MANTRA (short for “Massive Agile Network Transformation”) will accelerate the deployment of network architectures that leverage fiber to some point in the field, particularly fiber to the home and business, the company asserts.
“For communication and digital service providers to meet the demand for data, fiber networks must be redesigned to be more agile with near-zero latency,” explained Dr. Anand Agarwal, Group CEO at Sterlite Tech. “While fiber provides a technology anchor for digital networks, a unified solution that converges design capability, deep fiberization and virtualization is the key to enabling ubiquitous connectivity to every home or enterprise. By integrating our silicon-to-software capabilities, we have created FTTx MANTRA as a solution which does exactly that. With this service, we are transforming everyday living experiences.”
