News : Frost & Sullivan Commends ipNX's Visionary Leadership
London, Feb 23, 2015 -- Based on its recent analysis of the fibre-optic convergence service market, Frost & Sullivan recognises ipNX with the 2014 Nigerian Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership. The company has consistently remained ahead of the technology curve by implementing forward-looking growth and market penetration strategies. 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. "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."
ipNX has astutely 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 has 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.
For distinguishing itself in the fibre-optic convergence service market by being the first-to-market with FTTH technologies, ipNX has earned the 2014 Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership Award in the Nigerian market
