National long distance operator, Phase3 Telecom has begun the deployment of model network to enable high speed connectivity in the Nigerian real estate market as an off-shoot of its upgraded fibre-based wireless telecommunications infrastructure.
The Chief Executive Officer of the company, Stanley Jegede, in a statement made available to Vanguard Hi-Tech said in expanding its infrastructure, the company was committed to driving a first of its kind advanced Wi-Fi network based on the enormous demand for reliable Wi-Fi services not only in the real estate sector but in the country.
He assured that the network operator was consistently refining its Wi-Fi strategies and deploying Wi-Fi networks in greater numbers to ensure wireless coverage for estates in Nigeria and rollout fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) which uses optical cables to deliver ultra-fast broadband services with network interface speeds of more than 100Mbps.
He informed that Phase3 Telecom is currently working on facilities which would greatly compliment 3G – 4G towards the end of this year.
This, according to him, would significantly boost voice, IP, data, internet, telecommunications services and value added services (VAS) to residents.
“The combination of FTTH and WiFi will give seamless access to all residents in these estates. Our focus is to ensure a high-speed and affordable fibre-to-the-home network that will be delivering even more services and applications in the future. The company is deploying this fiber high speed solution to help Phase3 Telecom better position its services against competitive offerings and to expand its offering into areas where competition are currently lacking. The decision to deploy fibre high speed solution to the real estate industry in Nigeria is a direct response to the customer’s desire for bandwidth speed and affordability.”
Similarly, the company’s Director of Engineering, Ajibade Momolosho, also explained that the network solutions for these estates provide the convenience and flexibility of wireless with the power of direct fibre connection to homes that comes with plenty of performance for more demanding applications such as high speed broadband access and lives video surveillance.
