(businesspress24) - Pune, India - September 17, 2018: Sterlite Tech [BSE: 532374, NSE: STRTECH], an end-to-end global technology leader in smarter digital networks, today announced the addition of 15 million fibre km to its optical fibre cabling capacity, doubling it to 33 million fibre km. This expansion will place the Company among the top integrated optical fibre and cabling technology providers globally.

The Company''s Board of Directors has approved a Rs 320 crore (USD44 million) capital expenditure for this expansion, which will be financed through a mix of internal accruals and debt. The enhanced capacity is expected to come on-line by June 2020 in a phased manner.

As leading global markets invest in deep fiberisation for hyper-scale network applications such as 5G, FTTx and data centre connectivity, this expansion will reinforce Sterlite Tech''s position as a leading provider of fibre and software-based smarter networking solutions.


The Company is expanding its solutions portfolio very rapidly. Recently, it announced a 100% acquisition of Metallurgica Bresciana in Italy for cable expansion, while earlier it had announced an expansion of its optical fibre capacity via a Greenfield investment. Sterlite Tech is also actively working on software-defined networks in virtualised environments.
