Unlocking Business Potential: The Power of FTTB Connectivity and Voice Convergence 

In the fast-paced world of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), choosing the right connectivity solution is crucial for businesses seeking a competitive edge. Kibo Connects’ communication stack plays a pivotal role, and today, we’ll delve into the significance of Fiber to the Business (FTTB) connectivity, highlighting its benefits over alternatives like Business Broadband and Fiber to the Home (FTTH). 

FTTB: Next Generation Connectivity 

At present, we proudly provide leading connectivity solutions offering an unparalleled level of service compared to traditional alternatives. FTTB stands out with its uncontended (1:1) dedicated symmetric service. The symmetric nature ensures equal upload and download bandwidth, a critical factor for cloud-based environments and real-time services like voice and video conferencing. 

Uncontended (1:1) means your business enjoys a dedicated bandwidth, free from the impact of other users on the network. This contrasts with Business Broadband, which is typically contended (10:1), leading to unpredictable service quality. 

Why should businesses opt for FTTB? 

  • Predictable Performance: In multiservice environments, FTTB ensures predictable performance, preventing issues like video call disruptions caused by contention. 

  • Cloud-Based Efficiency: FTTB is essential for cloud-based operations, ensuring seamless uploading and downloading from online services like M365 and SAP. 

  • Real-Time Service Protection: Businesses relying on real-time services, such as voice and video conferencing, benefit from FTTB’s protection against interference from other data usage on the network. 

The Human Resource Connection: A Cisco Study 

Research indicates a direct correlation between human resource costs and connectivity quality. Cisco’s study highlights that Next Generation Connectivity, exemplified by FTTB, can lead to a remarkable 10% reduction in human resource costs. This reduction is attributed to improved productivity, availability, accessibility, retention, office hours, and commitment, impacting the company’s brand, reputation, and risk profile positively. 

Key Differences: FTTB vs. Broadband/FTTH 

FTTB distinguishes itself in various ways: 

  • Infrastructure Quality: FTTB infrastructure is built to a higher standard with more redundancy, ensuring reliability. 

  • Quality of Service: Kibo has access to Quality of Service options with FTTB, enhancing control over network performance. 

  • Service Level Agreements: FTTB comes with a robust SLA from the Fibre Network Operator (FNO), ensuring commitments for uptime and issue resolution. 

  • Investment in Redundancy: Forward-thinking companies, like Kibo, invest in redundant infrastructure. 


Voice Convergence: A Game-Changer 

Another significant advantage of FTTB is the convergence of voice services. This convergence leads to substantial cost savings by eliminating legacy PSTN infrastructure costs. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services, coupled with virtual Private Branch Exchange (vPBX) systems, offer feature-rich, cost-effective alternatives to traditional PBX solutions. This shift aligns with the evolving landscape of Over-the-Top (OTT) voice services, with platforms like Microsoft Teams poised to replace legacy solutions. 

In conclusion, businesses stand to gain significantly by embracing FTTB connectivity and voice convergence. The benefits extend beyond mere cost savings, impacting overall operational efficiency, employee satisfaction, and the future readiness of business in the dynamic ICT landscape.  .
