Ambuja Neotia Goes Fibre Ready for Smarter Homes
Working from home, does it bother you when the video conference call drops abruptly? Do you secretly wish for a James Bond-like home where you can get things done at the snap of your finger or with a simple voice command? Well, you are not alone in this.
And never before has the need for a smarter home been felt the way it is being now, as the world is forced to work from home. Post-Covid19, not just big businesses but even people in general will seek smarter homes to connect to the world without any hiccup.
The solution to such changing and challenging times lies in Fibre Ready Realty.
So, what is Fibre Ready Realty? How does it work?
A real estate where the Internet is accessed through optical fibres is a Fibre Ready Realty. It is called Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) technology, which uses a network of optical fibres, instead of traditional copper-based cables, to provide extremely high-speed Internet access via a single, bi-directional fibre optic strand.
The main reason why FTTH will be the norm post-Covid19 is the fact that the technology effectively provides high-speed Internet network. FTTH promises connection speeds of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps), which is almost 20 to 100 times faster than your usual cable modem or DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) connection.
For this to happen, though, our homes need to be designed with the optical fibre network in mind. Fibre-optics compatibility has emerged as a key differentiator in choosing real estate and development areas — both for residential as well as commercial purposes.
It is anybody’s guess what one can achieve if such high-speed Internet access is available to one’s home. All your digital demands such as:
- OTT services
- Online gaming
- Smart speakers
- Virtual assistants
- Video conferencing
- Accessing data stored “in the cloud”
- VoIP-based telephone service
- Wireless sensor networks
- Sensor-based lighting fixtures
- Sensor-based thermostats
- Home security system and video surveillance
- Other embedded automated systems
— every bit of technology needed for a seamless IOT (Internet of Things) integration will function only when your home is fibre ready.
Real estate developers across the world are trying to make their buildings fibre ready. As the most future-proof communications medium available, it is hailed as a smart choice because it’s less expensive, easy to install, less intrusive than traditional cables, and above all the most efficient tool to take care of our future life and style.
At Ambuja Neotia, in keeping with our values of making future-ready neighbourhoods, we have already started integrating our architectural elements to the FTTH technology. From Utalika Luxury in Kolkata to The Residency City Centre Patna in Bihar — our real estate projects have already been designed to make a difference to not only how people live today but also to how people will live in the near future.
