InCoax offers cost-effective fiber extension broadband to UK housing associations

STOCKHOLM, March 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Facilitating connected homes quickly and without unnecessary expense is at the heart of InCoax’s market offering. This approach fits very well with HACT’s mission to bring innovative housing ideas to the Social Housing sector. InCoax endorses HACT’s social value approach to connectivity and offers cost-effective broadband solutions for social housing.

Today’s smart homes monitor temperature, humidity, water leaks, energy usage, monitor fire and burglar alarms, activate smart door locks, and more. This reduces costs and significantly increases the comfort and safety of tenants. Covid-19 has also clearly proven the need for internet connectivity for home study, work, social activities and entertainment streaming. The need is about the same for all citizens and, within the framework of social inclusion and personal development, should be made available to all. Living in social housing should not limit the availability of these services.

The good news is that limited funding need not be an obstacle. If there is a cable network in the premises, for the reception of satellite television and/or cable television, this may become the necessary high-speed broadband network. You don’t have to replace it with expensive fiber optic installations in individual apartments.

“InCoax supports the Housing Associations’ Charitable Trust in its important work for the inclusion and well-being of vulnerable groups in the community,” said Helge Tiainen, InCoax’s Head of Marketing, Sales and Product Management. . “We are cooperating with similar organizations in the United States, where we recently helped roll out broadband connectivity to a large affordable housing complex in Austin, TX. Tenants now have cost-effective broadband access that allows them to access education, healthcare and employment opportunities from home. Services that are difficult to reach without the right technologies and a high-speed Internet connection.”

“We see InCoax’s fiber extension as a valid alternative to bridge the social divide more quickly,” says Michael McLaughlin, digital manager at HACT.

Using InCoax technology, you can get up to 2.5 Gbps of high-speed data rate over coaxial network cable, delivering up to 1 Gbps of symmetrical data rate to each apartment (which is much higher than the average use). Simply connect the incoming fiber from the operator to the InCoax control unit and to the site’s existing coax network. Broadband connectivity is now available in apartments through InCoax modems connected to cable outlets. Services are defined remotely, and with Zero Touch Provisioning, you’re good to go. Faster deployment, fewer problems, lower cost.
