BSNL Order for Sterlite Optical

November 6, 2007

Sterlite Optical Technologies has received a contract from BSNL valued at Rs 1.43 billion for supply of copper telecom cables. These cables would be used to enhance BSNL’s pan-India network to provide basic telephony and broadband services.

Broadband services have sparked off a fresh wave in demand for wire line connectivity with leading telecom incumbents in India opting to launch broadband services using the ADSL 2+ technology, which has given copper cables a fresh lease of life. The copper cables are used for the last mile wiring for landline phones while fiber optic cables are used up to the junction box.
