NSE-listed corporate internet and IT Solutions provider Access Kenya has unveiled a determined Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) Solution targeted at builders, real estate agents and investors in the Kenyan construction industry.
Dubbed ‘Intelligent Buildings’, the fibre solution is aimed at supporting Building Management Systems (BMS) to improve efficiency in the management of vital services in both commercial and residential buildings.
“The FTTP has enormous potential and it will add considerable value to the local building and construction industry while further enhancing technology integration to complement Kenya’s effort in achieving Vision 2030,” Group CEO Jonathan Somen said during the launch.
According to the company website, www.accesskenya.com, the FTTP concept will enable builders to construct buildings that will be ‘fibre optic ready’ and hence be able to layer on other services using the utility, in the same way as water and electricity.
BMS is central to the FTTP concept and its purpose is to control, monitor and optimise for efficiency services such as CCTV surveillance, alarm systems, ventilation, access control, entertainment systems, heating and filtration.
“We have invested heavily in building a robust, future-proof fibre network which, if well utilised, could provide limitless technological opportunities,” added Mr Somen.
Access Kenya has over 300 kilometres of fibre in Nairobi and Mombasa, which are complemented by a robust wireless network in all the major towns in the country.
