STL said tower fiberisation must increase from the current 35 percent to 80 percent to provide high quality 5G services.

“We are readying our infrastructure for 5G and fiberisation is a core need. We are happy to see the use cases that 5G Cosmos can solve for telcos and enable us to deliver a great 5G experience to our customers,” said Pankaj Miglani, Director Supply Chain Management, Bharti Airtel.

“This will need an integrated and futuristic solution. We have built 5G Cosmos to enable fiberisation of macro and small cells at scale and achieve the full potential of 5G,” said Ankit Agarwal, Managing Director of STL.

STL also launched India’s first multicore fibre and cable to change the optical connectivity landscape in the country.

“STL’s multiverse fibre and cable will enable 4 times capacity and play a vital role in 5G scale-up,” said Randeep Sekhon, CTO of Bharti Airtel.
