AccessKenya has launched fiber to the home solution (FTTH) and coined a name Fiber to the premises(FTTP). This solution is a fututristic approach towards infrastructure provision that will see most of the property developers who implement it get a huge advantage over competitors since there will be a time in the near future when premises seekers, be they home seekers or office seekers, will want to make sure they have everything covered to consider moving in.
Some of the services that will be available once the FTTP service is implemented during housing development are voice, TV, Intercom, CCtv, fire alarms and building management, all in one central setting. India has since implemented this in many of the new buildings into the architecture, hence giving users a new and cost effective way to communicate, like free video intercom within the building.
AccessKenya is keen on exploiting the potential of technology aided development such as Building Management Systems (BMS) as a part of the broader plan to diversify the product portfolio.The company has invested heavily in building a robust, future – proof fibre network which, if well utilized, could provide limitless technological opportunities.
Building Management Systems (BMS) encompass an enormous variety of technologies across commercial, industrial, institutional and domestic buildings, including energy management systems and building controls. The function of BMS is central to ‘Intelligent Buildings’ concepts; and its purpose is to control, monitor and optimize building services, e.g., lighting; heating; security, CCTV and alarm systems; access control; audio-visual and entertainment systems; ventilation, filtration and climate control, etc.
AccessKenya will be working with various solutions providers in deploying the solution such as TKM Maestro which has been providing integrated solutions for planning, design and construction in the country for the past 10 years.
