Internet is most popular, affordable and accessible medium of connectivity available for mass. Internet access can be done through various means like,
- Wireless – GSM, 3G, WiMax, LTE, WiFi etc
- Wire line – ADSL, VSDL, GPON, EPON, DOCSIS etc
Internet has become accessible due to combination of media mentioned above. Wireless is the mass means for extending data connectivity at most of the locations. However various limitations like, limited and costly Spectrum, Dense geography, Lack of adequate backhaul bandwidth etc make this medium unreliable and inconsistent. Complaints of rampant call drop and slow browsing speed can be seen on any social media for the networks of even leading telecom operators. In such scenario, optimum last mile bandwidth can only be delivered via Shared Telecom Infrastructure. Internet connectivity using wired medium has traditionally been offered using copper cable. However copper medium has limitation in supporting high speed Internet as bandwidth beyond 10 Mbps is difficult to achieve with currently deployed network. Hence only viable medium which can support and sustain the ever growing requirement of Internet speed is fibre medium which is getting implemented as “Fiber to the Home( FTTH)” solution. Once a home is connected through fibre last mile, we can say that particular home has direct access to Internet Super Highway and entire content, information and application available through web can be accessed without any limitation or constraint. Sterlite Networks Limited is pioneer in the field of implementation of FTTH technology in India.
