STL Academy Creates An Ecosystem For Deploying Complex Fibre Networks
STL Academy is an endeavour by Sterlite Technologies Limited, a global leader in end-to-end data network solutions, to create an ecosystem of highly skilled professionals in deploying and maintaining complex optical-fibre networks. It is now first fibre programme in India to be endorsed by FTTH Council APAC.
In the last 10 months alone, STL Academy has trained and certified 1,500 people, and is all set to blaze a trail of 15,000 skilled, certified and employable professionals in the coming year. With over 40,000 hours of teaching, these programs were held all over the country, the most prominent one being the training of over 400 Army personnel in remote-border and sub-zero areas of Leh and Ladakh to maintain the Network for Spectrum fibre network in Jammu & Kashmir.
Today, telcos and citizen networks are building new and extensive networks for FTTx, 4/5G and other applications. At the same time, large enterprises such as the Defence are modernising their current mission-critical networks. These require innovative technology, such as bend insensitive solutions, which need specialised deployment skills. A lack of such skills is an industry recognised challenge, and is being addressed by STL Academy.
