While the use of the Internet at home is rapidly increasing, in the condominium Internet field, the current equipment does not provide a satisfactory communication environment. The big problem is that it can’t be installed.
Our next-generation condominium Internet service, Hikariwo, is a service that solves these problems.
■ Three features of Hikariwo
The features of next-generation condominium Internet “Hikariwo” are as follows. Feature 1. At Hikariwo, we will investigate the properties where the carrier has determined that laying is impossible, find the laying route, and then lay the optical wiring that can reach the maximum communication speed of 100G*1 up to the exclusive area.
* The maximum communication speed is a best effort, and the actual communication speed may vary depending on the usage environment. It does not guarantee constant speed.
Feature 2. Residents can freely select their desired line service from a number of fiber-optic line services, as it is “multi-carrier compatible” where providers can be freely selected from among multiple fiber-optic line services.
* The provider that can be selected may differ depending on the building. Feature 3. In multi-carrier services, it is common for each carrier to handle the reception and change of contracts, and to respond to inquiries. Available.
Even when residents change places, it is possible to easily switch to a different fiber-optic line service due to the unique wiring operation, and residents benefit from high-speed and stable internet service by preparing fiber-optic wiring equipment with the same specifications as detached houses. It is a next-generation condominium Internet facility that also considers “future support” so that you can enjoy the future.
