Taking Smart Homes to the Next Level1st Feb 2019
Faster internet, HD television, improved communications & security… Utopia of the digital world and our homes today. All of this is possible through a technological breakthrough that is optical fibre.
Optical fibre accommodates the constant demand for higher bandwidth. Fibre to the home (FTTH) is the installation and use of optical fibre from a central point directly to individual buildings such as residences, apartment buildings and businesses to provide unprecedented high-speed internet access. The number of houses in South Africa passed by fibre has grown from 439,000 in 2017 to 933,000 by March 2018 – equivalent to 112% year on year growth, according to a report from the FTTH Council.
With the NEXTEC broadband connectivity offerings, NEXTEC brings to you optimal, efficient and cost-reducing fibre solutions. They provide super-fast fibre. This enables faster download and upload speed than other formats, and allows for HD entertainment, so consumers can watch their favourite movies, series and sports events in super-high definition, and gaming enthusiasts can rely on fast, reliable downloading that enables uninterrupted interaction.
NEXTEC’s broadband connectivity infrastructure enables improved communication because better cellular coverage is possible through decentralised mini antennas mounted on camera poles, street poles, etc., and cost-effective internet calling is a reality with crystal-clear audibility. In addition, this enables better security, with CCTV cameras stably linked to the network to provide a safe environment.
NEXTEC ensures this seamless connectivity at every level through physical deployment of fibre optic cables, including underground and aerial installations, blown fibre solutions, duct hauling, floating connections, and termination.
At the metro level, dedicated teams, coupled with an efficient project management office, handle all the tricky issues live through wayleave management and civil works, and provide clients with turnkey metro infrastructure that connects seamlessly to NEXTEC’s innovative last-mile fibre solutions.
