Flexibility to deliver services to the apartment you've not even thought of yet
Drastically reduce the footprint needed for infrastructure in your development.
Traditional copper cables have limited range meaning comms rooms are needed throughout a large building to extend service to all parts. Fibre needs only one comms room per building, the cables are also tiny relative to copper cabling and you'll need far fewer of them.
A typical 1200 room development introducing SFI™ could create 10 extra rooms. Over 10 years that could equal £1M extra rental income.*
