KDN Lauches Malindi Metro Fiber
Kenya Data Networks (KDN) has announced that its Metro Lease Circuits in Malindi Town are complete and ready for use. A Metro Lease Circuit is a dedicated point to point service provided within a town though a fiber network. Dedicated means that the connection is not re-engineered, thus there is no sharing or contention.
Metro Lease Circuits was only available in Nairobi and parts of Mombasa and this has hampered internet penetration in the country. Most of the offices outside Nairobi still rely on either slow or expensive or both.
With the ever increasing demand for voice and data and the imminent evolution to 4G mobile technologies, there is high demand from corporates for Voice E1s and inter-branch connections, and ISPs are looking for more Points of Presence (POPs). Broadcasters moving to digital transmission will need stability in their interconnections and the growth of the internet and e-commerce will require the use of Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) systems for effective and efficient business guarantees. KDN’s Metro Lease Circuits meet the standard for the kind of quality in connection sought by business entities seeking to get more out of the ICT infrastructure they use.
“KDN’s Metro Lease Circuits are fully supported by SDH and the company is committed to playing a leadership role in ushering business entities into a bold new future that guarantees reliability, stability, redundancy and high capacity in ICT infrastructure service,” added KDN’s Chief Commercial Officer.
KDN has targeted four high potential towns with its Metro Circuits namely; Malindi, Nakuru, Eldoret and Kisumu.
