The fibre to the Premise (FTTP) solution dubbed ‘Intelligent Properties’ is aimed at supporting Building Management Systems (BMS) to improve efficiency in the management of essential services in both residential and commercial properties.
“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.
The FTTP concept will enable developers to build houses that are ‘fibre optic ready’ and hence be able to layer on other services using the utility just as in the case of electricity and water.
BMS is key to the FTTP concept and its function is to control, monitor and optimise for efficiency essential services such access control, ventilation, CCTV surveillance, heating and filtration, alarm systems and entertainment systems.
According to Mr Somen, Access Kenya has invested heavily in putting up a robust, future-proof fibre network which could provide limitless technological opportunities.
The firm has more than 300km of fibre in Nairobi and Mombasa, and vigorous wireless network in major towns across the country.
