SiFi Networks’ Wastewater Fiber Technology’s patent has been granted in the USA and Europe.
The application of Wastewater Fiber Technology provides a compelling alternative to conventional core fiber installation techniques by providing a means of running fiber cables through sanitary and storm wastewater networks.
This technology allows for greater flexibility in the network design and deployment.
“ Our wastewater technology lends itself well to the more challenging areas of the build such as rail roads, lakes and desolated areas within the wider network where there are very few dwellings” commented Jim McBride, Head of Technical Counsel for SiFi Networks.
“By using this technology combined with traditional techniques ensures a more cost effective and shorter deployment whilst creating a more secure network” added McBride.
With continuing growth in demand for fiber to cell towers Wastewater Fiber Technology opens up new opportunities to expedite 4G and 5G deployments. SiFi Networks’ Wastewater Technology has been heavily utilized for Fiber to the Cell tower deployments, significantly reducing capital expenditure and time of deployment for hundreds of miles of fiber to cell sites across South Africa. Its applications have been tried and tested over the last decade in the USA, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Australia.
SiFi Networks acted as a sponsor for Craig Settles’ article “Show Me the (Hidden) Money for community Broadband.”
The article demonstrates the different ways in which a city can fund a community broadband project.
Many communities feel they cannot achieve a fiber optic network in their city due to the lack of money however that is not the case any longer.
SiFi Networks enters into a Private Public Partnerships with cities to fund, build and operate fiber optic networks upon which internet service providers can deliver next generation applications to the community.
“SiFi Networks’ FiberCity™ model offers the city a low risk option in which municipalities can own their own broadband infrastructure with no tax increase to the residents” commented Ben Bawtree-Jobson CEO of SiFi Networks.
“The city in fact enters into a long-term lease with SiFi Networks and then can sell access to their network to internet service providers.” Added Bawtree-Jobson.
