Sterlite Tech, a global data network solutions company, launched TruRibbonTM – Ribbon Reinvented at the Optical Networking and Communication Conference (#OFC2019), happening at California. TruRibbonTM is a fully backward compatible ribbon cable that offers the high density needed by today’s networks, with superior handling design to enable a first-time-right installation.

As data requirements continue to explode unabated, service providers, hyper-scale data centres and others, look for ongoing innovation in fiber connectivity and cable solutions to enable speed and agility at competitive costs. Sterlite Tech has been continuously innovating to meet these needs, and utilizing its unique and industry-leading design capability, it has now developed TruRibbonTM – Ribbon Reinvented.

Optimized for first-time right installation, TruRibbonTM – Ribbon Reinvented offers a unique combination of five key benefits, bringing tremendous time and cost saving in fiber network rollouts:

-Ultra high fiber count solution for small cells, data centres and FTTx backhaul requirements
-Compatibility with all legacy ribbon splicing, stripping, handling techniques and capital equipment
-Ease of use with furcation friendly design
-Easy identification with printable ribbons
-Significantly reduced diameter as compared to traditional ribbon design cables


Backward compatibility ensures that the solution can easily be spliced to legacy ribbon using existing equipment, avoiding the cost of new splicing equipment or a change in practices. At the same time, the solution’s compactness enables smaller hand holes, contributing to significant cost reduction.

“Technology innovation and deep customer connect are at the core of everything we do, helping us innovate for customer needs. TruRibbonTM is one such innovative solution that brings massive connectivity for multiple applications, at reduced cost,
