Sterlite Power executes Gurugram Smart City optical fibre intracity project
The company’s convergence business had entered a PPP agreement with the GMDA
Sterlite Power has completed Gurugram Smart City project for creating an intracity fiber network for the city’s communication needs.
The company’s convergence business had entered a public private partnership (PPP) agreement with the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) to build, manage and maintain the fiber network in Gurugram Sub City 2 for 21 years.
In this project, the company has installed four underground ducts that carry fibers connecting all bus stops, schools, police stations, government buildings along with various private buildings.
Two ducts among these are dedicated to Gurugram Smart City’s operation and the other two can be commercially used by communication service providers.
The entire route is updated through Geographic Information System (GIS) along with an integrated fiber monitoring system for proactive monitoring as well as preventive and corrective maintenance.
The PPP has created a world-class optical fiber infrastructure to place Gurugram Smart City on a par with global standards. It provides fiber connectivity to GMDA’s Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) which serves as Gurugram’s COVID-19 war room for distribution of food and relief material.
The company’s convergence business unit is one of the leading providers of best-in-class dark fiber solutions in the country utilising its highly reliable OPGW network.
With Sterlite Power’s expertise in designing, deploying, and maintaining Optical Ground Wire (OPGW) and All-Dielectric Self-Supporting (ADSS) fiber networks, the company aims to provide best-in-class communication infrastructure and solutions by creating the most reliable network.
