In addition , global trends indicate that properties enabled with FTTH see an increase of 3 percent to 3.5 percent in property value .

SINCE ITS INCEPTION , FIBRE TO THE HOME ( FTTH ) HAS RISEN FROM A NOVICE TECHNOLOGY TO ONE OF CHOICE FOR DEPLOYMENTS IN RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITIES .
It has become so important that the FTTH Council Africa is paying specific attention to what it coins “ home communities ”. The FTTH Council Africa arranges various interventions like community workshops where estate management can engage with estate managers in other communities wishing to deploy fibre , studying deployments and ensuring community access is fast by listening to operators to determine what they can do for their community .
The key drivers of the adoption of FTTH are twofold : firstly , the convergence of voice and data services benefit estate governing bodies , and secondly , inherent features give estate managers the advantage of centralised estate management .
There is also a multitude of features and benefits that FTTH provides to estate managers and governing bodies of any type of estate . Research shows that managing estate security is becoming more challenging as the methods used by intruders have become increasingly advanced . Fully scalable and real-time security management is no longer optional . Instead it has become a necessity without which an estate ’ s security can be vulnerable to intrusion .
This is an area where an FTTH deployment in an estate is of immense benefit . As the security solution can be provided on the same estate fibre and overlaid on one network , it not only increases communication and efficiencies but also drives down solution costs . FTTH treats most security solutions transparently , significantly reducing compatibility complications .
Access control is also extremely important , regardless of estate type . From golf to equestrian ,
IF DONE PROPERLY , AN ESTATE FTTH DEPLOYMENT CAN RENDER A NUMBER OF OTHER SERVICES THAT MAKE THE MANAGEMENT OF AN ESTATE EASIER
