The emergence of fiber-powered internet has accelerated recently, powering up homes and enterprises with high-speed internet that boosts productivity and provides optimum entertainment to users.
With the increasing need for fast internet, Converge ICT—a provider of world-class ICT products and personalized services to customers in the Philippines—rolls out next-generation broadband services that are set to improve lives and empower enterprises.
Converge ICT develops relevant and world-class solutions for its clients, creating productive working environments for businesses and optimizing home entertainment for every internet use at home.
According to Dennis Anthony Uy, Converge ICT president and CEO, access to internet is becoming more available, with more homes and small and medium enterprises as well as established ones recognizing the benefits that come with fiber internet’s integration into their operations.
“For businesses, slow internet speeds result to loss of productivity and efficiency; for homes, this means their inability to do research and watch their favorite TV show when they need and want it,” Uy added. “But with high-speed connectivity, you can enjoy its fullest potential.”
Fiber optic cable (FOC) and its potentials
Converge ICT laid more than 6,700 km. of fiber optics cables (FOC) beneath the ground using the latest micro-trenching technology.
These cables are composed of thin fibers known as fiber optics made of lightweight, durable, and non-flammable materials that are less susceptible to corrosion. Copper cables, a conventional material for telephone and internet lines, corrode that leads to downtime or the sudden interruption in the flow of data.
Fiber optics are also more compact and flexible. One fiber cable can stretch up to several meters and is capable of transmitting 100 gbps. On the other hand, a conventional copper cable can only measure a maximum of 100 meters that only transmits 1gbps at most.
Converge ICT uses this technology to produce a wide-range of services, which include full-speed internet that runs as fast as 100 mbps through its FiberX technology for homes, and enterprise internet and data services for small and large-scale companies.
Converge ICT also delivers symmetrical connection among its subscribers allowing them to enjoy high-speed download and upload links.
Converge ICT and its vision for Smarter Community
With the fast transmission of data brought about by Converge ICT’s pure fiber technology, information and other city elements are also becoming more connected. It facilitates these elements to run smoother benefitting the people who use it.
In fact, several public and private institutions are now equipped with innovative services leading to a smarter community.
Converge ICT develops infrastructure and application that are viable to improve transport, surveillance, traffic management, vehicle tracking, mass notification, and security systems.
Uy concluded, “Better technology means better experience both for businesses that want to meet their goals and for families who want to maximize the full potentials of superb connectivity. With Converge, these homes and companies can enjoy seamless Internet experience for work and play without the added costs.”
With its almost two decades of expertise in Central Luzon, Converge ICT is now taking on new markets in the metro to meet the increasing internet demands of the communities in the region. These cities include San Juan, Las Pinas, Manila, Quezon City, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Makati, Pasig, Taguig, CAMANAVA Area, Pasay, and Muntinlupa respectively.
