ipNX gets Frost & Sullivan commendation on service
Frost &Sullivan claimed that ipNX has consistently remained ahead of the technology curve by implementing forward-looking growth and market penetration strategies, stressing that its deployment of fibre to the home (FTTH) broadband infrastructure has positioned it as an innovation leader in the Nigerian market.
ipNX delivers a range of communications services on its Internet Protocol (IP) network via fibre and microwave radio communications technologies. In 2013, it was the first Nigerian network provider to deploy a FTTH network covering the three major cities of Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt in Nigeria.
“The launch of ipNX’s FTTH networks placed Nigeria in a league of a select group of African countries offering the FTTH network technology,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Naila Govan-Vassen, adding, “the bandwidth upgrade also improved customer experience with the company’s fibre optic service (FOS) and eventually, strengthened the ipNX brand and position as a market leader.”
The ISP claimed that it has overcome the challenges associated with the lack of reliable power supply by employing gigabyte passive optic network (GPON). The architecture uses passive (unpowered) optical splitters between ipNX’s point of presence and the customer’s location. As there is no active device that depends on power, this architecture incurs lower costs on equipment than point-to-point architectures.
ipNX built a content delivery platform and network infrastructure with enough capacity to retransmit and distribute both live TV and video on-demand content in an exceptionally reliable, secure and efficient manner. Significantly, customers will be able to enjoy uninterrupted service, as ipNX TV runs on fibreoptic cable technology, which, unlike satellite service, is not affected by rainfall and other inclement weather conditions.
