Fiber @ Home facilitating migration to underground network
Fiber @ Home has shown enough confident to drum up the government endeavour to de-clutter the cables hanging across the Dhaka City. The authority of the country changed several datelines of removing the cables; finally 31st December of this year rescheduled as an ultimate dateline to make at least main roads started from Uttara to Motijheel to take off the cables to make people hassles free from the hanging cables.
Moynul Haque Siddiqui, MD of Fiber @ Home, told in a recently called press conference that his company is making the ground to migrate ISP's cable to the underground network, which is hazard free and save money of the country for importing huge cables from abroad.
Along with other funny names Dhaka City is being called the city waved with cables just above the heads of people. It is not only hurdling for predestines but several times these got fire to jeopardize life of the residences of the city.
Developed countries always favour underground cable network than hanging wires over the heads, such tangled up cables look very ugly and make a city unsafe. Years back BTRC awarded licenses to two companies to bring down cables beneath our feet. Fiber @ Home is one of the companies that set up 1500 kilometre underground cables already and their service is ready in front of 20 million houses to connect city dwellers with fibre optic network.
MD of the company expressed his desire to reach at Upazila level within 3/5 years. However, he thinks success of the network depends on its maximum utilisation, and government and public cordial response to it is needed. Early and best exploration of the NTTN services will spread its benefits to the people as quickly as possible.
The company is also concern like VoIP some unscrupulous persons can start this networking without BTRC license. This underground network is a best option to monitor illegal cyber activities. It will be complicacy free that is why it was suggested that underground cable should be out of corruption involvement.
Fibre to Home project of the company includes transmitting voice, video and data; the 150 kilometre project started with triple play network technology. By the technological know-how multiple functions can be done. One cable is enough to log on internet, ring on phone and switch on TV.
The press conference projected the infrastructures developed by Fibre @ Home to the journalists by a Power Point Presentation, which was conducted by Brigadier General Md. Rafiqur Rahman, psc (retired).
