Sumitomo Electric Signs Fusion Splicer Supply Agreement with India's TATA Communications

  • Sumitomo Electric Industries (SEI)

TOKYO — Sumitomo Electric Industries and its wholly owned subsidiary SEI Trading India (SETI) have signed a long-term fusion splicer supply agreement with the major Indian communications service company TATA Communications Transformation Services (TCTS).

TCTS is a major Indian communication service provider who has not only expanded its business into consigned construction and maintenance of mobile phone networks but also taken part in the Smart Cities Mission, a project for developing futuristic cities across India making use of optical communication networks, launched by the Indian government. TCTS is now playing an important role in establishing information and communication networks in the country.

High Environmental Resistance

Optical network installation work in India is often carried out in a harsh dusty environment at high temperatures and humidity, and required a lot of travels from one site to another on rough terrain. TCTS needed to improve its work efficiency under such harsh environments. Thus, TCTS evaluated Sumitomo Electric’s direct core monitoring fusion splicers, for their high environmental resistance, strong structure to vibration and shock and superb loss splicing performance, and thus reached a two-year supply agreement through our Indian distributor INVAS Technologies for the product.

TCTS has already started installation work for optical communication networks using Sumitomo Electric's fusion splicers. It is expected that Sumitomo Electric’s fusion splicers and SETI’s maintenance and technical support will help speed up the Smart Cities Mission and other construction work for mobile phone networks.
