Kabel-X’s technology provides a valuable tool for countries facing the challenges of bridging the digital divide by delivering timely, equitable and affordable broadband infrastructure.
This is based on a powerful combination of new market dynamics enabled by Kabel-X: increased speed of delivery, coupled with reduced cost of Implementation, meaning extended economic and geographic reach.
Enhancing commercial returns
Traditional market driven approaches to upgrade of telecommunications network services often focus on high-profit, high-density areas which tend to already have good network access in place – often from multiple providers. The changing cost dynamic introduced by Kabel-X means a significant extension of ‘premium’ geographies in line with cost reductions of some 30 per cent with hard to reach markets becoming more attractive. The result is a shift toward network extension rather than network duplication.
Challenging barriers to access
Finite funds create a major challenge for the network architects and a natural funnel of investment towards targeted geographies. With Kabel-X, costs can be cut by a third or more dependent on specific locations, meaning either significant total budget savings or, within a fixed budget, that the roll-out potential for the same fund base can be significantly extended. The result is more fibre optic broadband connections per unit of spend, or real reductions in the cost per new connection.
Extended infrastructure programmes
The significant costs inherent in the installation of new network services to small and distant communities, or those in challenging areas, means these groups are often excluded from network developments or last to benefit. The reduced costs and disruption using Kabel-X technologies mean a major barrier to widespread geographic network roll-out is overcome.
Faster delivery times
Finally Kabel-X allows rapid response to the demands for new fibre-optic networks and to the expectations of an increasingly bandwidth hungry population. With installation speeds of up to ten times that of traditional systems, rapid roll-out is now possible meaning delivery beyond anticipated time frames and under planned spend.
