Fibre Ready Scheme (FRS)
IMDA's ICT for Productivity and Growth (IPG) Programme was announced during Budget 2014. This includes Fibre Ready Scheme (FRS) which was launched to benefit building owners of non-residential buildings.
The FRS will subsidise a one-time installation of infrastructure that will provide open access to ultra-high speed fibre broadband to 100% of tenants in a non-residential building. Under the FRS, building owners can apply for a subsidy of up to 90% of the cost of new in-building infrastructure, capped at $300,000.
Benefits of the FRS
- Reduced ad-hoc installation works, any works done will be less disruptive
- Less riser and ceiling congestion
- Safer environment with reduced height and fire-loading issues, night works and labour-intensive activities
- Ease of maintenance that will allow fast repairs and trouble-shooting if a centralised containment system is deployed
Why should I apply for FRS?
Because the Grant by IMDA is only valid for 3 years till 31 January 2018 and it is mandatory under COPIF 2013 to provide infrastructure for fibre from MDF to riser / tenant units thereafter.
As with most RF wireless broadband technologies currently deployed, the underlying infrastructure and framework is not entirely new and is based on ISO protocol layering, the present structure of the Internet is the result of TCP/IPevolutionary developments.
Customer expectations and QoS ... what we deliver
Project costing and budgets needs to meet the subscriber desire for coverage and capacity means operators must optimize the use of existing investments and scrutinize financial and cost implications of project expenditures.
We expect the best from ourselves and our contractors and emphasize in providing a high level of employee and customer support to ensure our committed work and more gets done, getting more value for what you pay for.
As a network traffic increases ...
Network operators and Vendors seeks to optimize the installed radio site equipments based on the parameters and settings from initial radio plans during initial deployment, the expansion of network traffic and coverage will be as a result of the addition of the new sites.
Systems Acceptance Testing and Site audit services
Efficient shall conduct a detailed study of the installed site to ensure all the Equipments are commissioned and in proper working order once the installation is complete and check listed. The physical and installed structures any shall undergo a detailed audit on eye-ball and physical checks, all radio-systems and end-to-end connectivity once fully integrated. A user acceptance test-procedure shall be defined to conduct End-to-end testing to ensure the services and internet links are reliable and consistent.
Radio and Systems performance optimization
Efficient shall provide the labour and technical support perform various optimization such as modification to antenna tilt, drive-testing and modification site equipment settings or configurations required to ensure that the existing Network performance is not degraded.
Delivering increased value to the customer’s organisation
Efficient Networks is constantly working on improving design, installation and technical support to address your technical and commercial needs.
We are always keen to host Workshops in a continuing effort to educate and inform Wi-Fi professionals and enthusiasts about Cellular, 802.1x and emerging wireless standards, propagation techniques, security measures, RF interference and other license-free band quality issues. In addition to theories, attendees have the opportunity to gain an in-depth review of latest wireless technologies and measurement tools form invited speakers whom are experts in their own field.
