AccessKenya looks to grow FTTP
INTERNET| June 13, 2012, 8:42 a.m.
AccessKenya aims to expand its fibre to the premise solutions, through new partnerships with property developers.
The company will host a breakfast session on 28 June with developers, real estate agents and investors in the building construction industry to share insights, prospects and explore possible partnerships.
AccessKenya says it aims to offer a Building Management Solution (BMS) and develop what it calls “intelligent properties.”
This will be realised by delivering high speed broadband through the Fibre To The Premises (FTTP) concept.
Accesskenya says: “With this concept, developers will be able to put up building that will be fibre optic cable ready and thence be able to layer on other services using the utility, just like electricity and water. This concept will go a long way in ensuring that such services as CCTV surveillance, centralised lighting, Access Control, Alarm systems, ventilation, filtration and even entertainment systems are optimized for efficiency.”
