Sterlite’s Stellar Fibre billed as ‘universal fiber’

Sterlite Technologies introduced Stellar Fiber, billed as a ‘universal fiber’ at the India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2019. Stellar Fibre offers ITU-T G.657.A2 bend insensitivity — but with a mode field diameter the size of ITU-T G.652.D fiber, thereby offering bend insensitivity alongside compatibility with legacy fibers. The company claims that Stellar Fibre’s geometry ensures minimal splice loss and promotes proper installation. Simulations at the STL’s Centre of Excellence research facility suggest that use of the fiber can increase a fiber-optic networks lifetime by 10 years or more, thanks to its resilience to cuts and accidental bends.
