Node, which provides hassle-free internet connectivity for buildings, has renewed its annual partnership with PlaceTech to jointly deliver marketing activity aimed at promoting innovation in the property industry.
Doug Ward, co-founder of Node, said: “Fresh off the back of completing the best-connected Grade A office building in the UK [50-60 Station Road in Cambridge for Aviva] we are excited for the next phase of Node.
“With a pipeline of over 5m sq ft of connected buildings scheduled for 2020, this partnership is essential to our challenge of working with the property industry to deliver world class connectivity and smart building capability.
“PlaceTech is uniquely positioned to push the boundaries of proptech journalism and Node is excited to develop this partnership further over the coming year.”
Annual partnership packages are for strategic players in property tech that want to raise promote modern methods of working, raise their profiles and penetrate the market for innovation by championing adoption, thought leadership and product development.
PlaceTech annual partners help shape our calendar of events offline as well as investing in our unique online editorial platform for the property community.
Paul Unger, editor of PlaceTech, said: “Node has had another storming year and we look forward to bringing their story to more people in the UK and internationally throughout 2020.”
Node is the communications ‘pluggable’ interface for buildings. Node provides a secure and supplier agnostic telecommunications point of presence for buildings. Node is a smart technology solution, setting a new standard in physical connectivity infrastructure within buildings. The vertically integrated hardware and software and fibre optic infrastructure to enable landlords to offer the best connectivity solution for their users.
Manchester-based Node is already used by Schroders, ALL+, Fore Partnership, and Allied London across 30-plus buildings totaling 10m sq ft and with a combined valued of £1bn.
Node works by pre-connecting broadband services into a development. When tenants move in they can select the provider they want on the Node portal. This avoid the costly and time-consuming frustration of wayleave agreements to grant access for engineers into a building after taking occupation.
The Annual Partnership package allows businesses to benefit from PlaceTech’s dedicated platform and global reach, through event sponsorship, advertising, content marketing, event tickets, podcasts, webinars, direct mail and more.
Mills & Reeve and Bruntwood Works are also annual partners with PlaceTech.
