Industry trends in internet services

Globally, internet access is a means to help developing countries leapfrog the development curve. Broadband infrastructure is increasingly being considered as vital as any other public utility. Many governments are funding infrastructure development through grants and entitlement programs. Meanwhile, internet traffic jumped by 40% during the pandemic and is expected to continue growing by double digits every year. Streaming + Gaming + Social Media industries dominate the usage with 80% of all traffic.

ISP Challenges

The COVID-19 pandemic has created demands which are opposing in nature. On the one hand, internet traffic and demand from consumers have increased rapidly, while on the other, lockdowns have delayed internet infrastructure build out.

Changing business, customer churn
Time to market, competition, capture market share
Effectively test new markets
Increase in data traffic
Lockdowns delay in fiber deployments

Solutions for ISPs

Challenge

Fiber ring incomplete or new backbone ring required. Fiber takes long to build, delayed by Covid or right of way. RF Challenges.

Solutions & Benefits

Centauri provides quick deployment of 10 Gbps links up to distances of 3 km. Operators can build a backbone ring in days, quickly capture market share and start generating additional revenue.

Challenge

New geography to serve, no existing fibre link. Fibre takes long to build, delayed by Covid or right of way. RF Challenges.

Solutions & Benefits

Centauri allows operators to connect OLT with 10Gbps links up to 3km in a matter of days. 2000 homes @$20 translates to $140K. Centauri RoI < 1 month. In competitive scenario, capturing subscriber base is critical as switching costs are high once a subscriber commits.

Challenge

Fibre takes long to build, delayed by Covid or right of way. RF Challenges. Test new market (suburb, geography).

Solutions & Benefits

Centauri allows operators to build mesh backbone with 10 Gbps links in a matter of days. In competitive scenario, capture subscriber base is critical as switching costs are high once subscribers commit. Lightweight device, can be easily redeployed to new locations.

Challenge

Last mile fibre unavailable. Fibre takes long to build, delayed by Covid or right of way. RF Challenges.

Solutions & Benefits

Operators can build high speed access to home and corporates in days. This allows them to capture market share and start generating additional revenue. Lightweight device, can be easily redeployed to new locations.
