Developers will have the ability to provide high-speed fibre internet from multiple suppliers into existing buildings with NODE’s latest product launch.
A NODE enabled building provides best-in-class fibre infrastructure, building resilience and customer experience. Working in partnership with the landlord, NODE delivers a supplier neutral fibre solution, removing the requirement for multiple wayleaves, expediting connectivity and reducing business risk to all end users.
To date, NODE has focused on new-build development and wholesale refurbishment projects. Following the successful integration of the solution to enable numerous landmark commercial buildings across the UK, the connectivity firm believes the time is right to introduce its capabilities to existing buildings.
Christian Anderton, advising principal at NODE, said: “This is a deliberate and significant stage in the continued growth of NODE. It has always been its strategy, as NODE moves into the next phase of its evolution, to support landlords in future-proofing their assets. We have adapted our technology to retrofit buildings, at an appropriate price point relative to rent and total occupational costs, partnering with landlords to offer their tenants the benefit of on-demand connectivity.”
Anderton continued: “Landlords recognise the importance that connectivity plays in de-risking occupational strategy and outperformance over the long-term. NODE understands how capital investment and customer service translates through to bottom-line capital value, total returns and higher IRRs.”
Launched in December 2017 to coincide with its partnership to deliver fibre alongside Allied London at No1 Spinningfields in Manchester, NODE was created in response to increasing demand for managed building solutions. Most recently, NODE has delivered the UK’s best-connected building alongside Brookgate at 50/60 Station Road, Cambridge, achieving download speeds of 10GB.
