NOW FIBER AIR: MAKING METRO MANILA FUTURE READY, ONE BUILDING AT A TIME.

For most enterprises, the speed of internet is directly proportional to the speed of business growth. It is no surprise that when fiber internet was introduced in the country, Filipino business owners rejoiced, thinking that this was the end of their internet woes. Unfortunately, their excitement turned to dismay upon discovering their enterprise is standing on ground that is not ready for fiber connection, or worse, the frequent disruption of service due to competitors cutting each other’s cable.


Fiber Air Soars

NOW Fiber Air, from Philippine Stock Exchange-listed firm NOW Corporation (PSE Ticker: NOW), is a fixed wireless carrier-grade network using pre-5G technology. It provides guaranteed broadband internet connection that can deliver up to 1Gbps in upload and download speeds simultaneously – meeting the demands of the modern digital economy.

NOW Fiber Air has grown expansively with 150 locations ready for connection all over Metro Manila. For many businesses where fiber is too costly or not available, this quick-to-install wireless option is ready for set up in as fast as one day. Moreover, NOW Fiber Air is a long-term investment because not only is it quick to set-up, it is also quick to dismantle. If the business moves location, the network goes with it.

The network covers a total of over 620 square kilometers and is compliant to Telco-Grade service level agreements, ensuring all the client’s multimedia applications perform optimally. Beyond the shift to a faster broadband internet connection, NOW Fiber Air unleashes opportunities in emergent areas for enterprises. These include cloud computing, disaster recovery, easy online collaboration, big data and video streaming.

For enterprise solutions, one product that NOW shall introduce in the Philippine market is IBM Watson Workspace. It is a powerful collaboration platform powered by Watson, IBM’s Artificial Intelligence (AI). Features include group chat, one-on-one direct messaging, video & audio calls, file sharing and storage, unlimited searchable history, push and email notifications, native apps for Mac and Android, open plug-ins for software developers, and enterprise security.


Fiber Ready, Future Ready

With NOW’s Fiber Air, every building in Metro Manila can experience fiber-like speeds and stability. For the brand, they can do more than provide the connection needs of building tenants at the present.

The ultimate goal is to make each building future ready.

“Our question for property managers and real estate developers of today: is your infrastructure ready for companies undergoing digital transformation? Are you an agent or enemy of the Gigabit Era of Broadband speed? Are the cables ready? Are they compatible with a 1Gbps network? Can their building handle the bandwidth requirements of the influx of devices used in a building to access the Internet at a single time?” said Kristian Pura, NOW’s head of business development.

Pura said people will soon have more than three (3) connected devices at a time. If the building infrastructure is not prepared to handle these devices performing web-based, bandwidth heavy tasks simultaneously, they will be left behind. NOW Fiber Air would allow a building to adjust its bandwidths easily to adapt to its tenants needs. It can be utilised either as a primary connection or as a secondary failover connection. Pura explains that this is a way giving back the control of the building to the property owners and developers. In the future, they do have to be at the mercy of their internet providers.
