4 reasons Smart Fibre Infrastructure is better than Full Fibre

FTTB is a fibre optic connection all the way from a telephone exchange to a building (Fibre to the Building). But, why stop there? Smart Fibre Infrastructure (SFI) is a faster and simpler way to cable your building. Here are 4 reasons SFI is the right choice for your next Build to Rent development:

  1. Less equipment and more space. With traditional cabling designs, you need a switch for every 90 metres of cable, fans for each switch, multiple cabinets and a whole range of equipment to power and maintain. Running over a single seamless fibre network, instead of multiple cables to each floor, SFI fibre cable doesn’t need switches or fans. This reduces the wasted space per floor, decreases the potential for faults and reduces your maintenance budget.
  2. Save money and the environment. All the extra equipment installed in a copper infrastructure is unnecessary. By installing SFI, value is added to your building by saving energy and money and reducing your carbon footprint! 
  3. Future proof building infrastructure. In a society where the Internet needs to be more and more accessible, it’s essential that your building is futureproof. With SFI, it’s easy to add additional data points. Therefore, there is no restriction on the TV, Internet and phone packages you can offer to residents.
  4. Warranty & support. Installing SFI with LivingCom comes with warranty and support throughout the term of your contract.

Traditional Fibre Broadband or FTTC (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) is a fibre connection from the local exchange to an on-street cabinet then copper connection from the cabinet to the premises. FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) offers much faster speeds and improves the performance of an internet connection. FTTB (Fibre to the Building) extends the fibre to the basement of a building but still uses copper cables to get to your premises. LivingCom offer a complete and true FTTP solution all the way to your apartment with Smart Fibre Infrastructure and Managed Broadband for the Build to Rent (BTR) sector.
