LONDON – SSE Enterprise Telecoms today unveils its significant network expansion programme, set to bring high capacity 100Gbps and 10Gbps services to businesses across the nation, facilitate 5G rollouts and aid in the deployment of next-gen connectivity technologies such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The company will nearly double its number of unbundled BT Exchanges in just over a year, enabling its customers to bring high capacity fibre services to the doorstep of approximately 80 per cent of UK business premises. These services will be available through SSE Enterprise Telecoms' customer portal, LIVEQUOTE, which provides quoting, ordering and price comparison capabilities, via its own network and those of leading thirds parties, for business connectivity from 10Mbps to 100Gbps across the UK.
As part of the accelerated expansion programme, SSE Enterprise Telecoms, renowned for its delivery excellence and best in class deployment teams, is delivering connectivity to Three UK, with 198 exchanges already deployed, and another 259 which will be available soon. As well as working closely with Three UK, SSE Enterprise Telecoms have also worked with O2 on fibre deployments in the capital. Three UK is set to utilise the expanded exchange footprint to enhance its existing 4G and to create new 5G networks.
Classed as a critical national infrastructure project, SSE Enterprise Telecoms has maintained its delivery schedule throughout the COVID-19 lockdown. The delivery schedule has been maintained despite many enforced changes to processes and planning, such as restrictions on engineering visits and social distancing. In spite of the well documented challenges, SSE Enterprise Telecoms is still forecasting a delivery that is on schedule and on budget.
Upon completion SSE Enterprise Telecoms will have a high-capacity fibre network spanning over 30,000 km and be in prime position to facilitate the UK's high-capacity digital first ambitions including the high-speed, performance and reach required for 5G networks. This will be key to enabling new technologies including the IIoT and autonomous vehicles, as well as opening the door to new business technologies such as seamless, instant video streaming and immersive Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.
Subscribers want two things: reliable Wi-Fi and continuous coverage for all of their connected devices. To get this, many customers will purchase third-party Wi-Fi routers and gateways from their local consumer electronics retailer. And while these may work, the data shows that most subscribers usually call their service providers when they experience service or security issues with these third-party systems.
It doesn't have to be this way. By offering a managed Wi-Fi solution, service providers can avoid the pain of trying to resolve issues caused by these consumer-grade routers and offer a solution that delivers their subscribers the ultimate Wi-Fi experience – while also generating new streams of revenue.
