Enschede, 18 April 2017 - The lighting of the open fiber network at the business parks in Uden has been transferred to NDIX. The open operator from Enschede provided the network with new switch equipment and installed new equipment for all customers. As a result, the network once again meets the latest standards and higher speeds of up to 1Gbit / s have become available. An additional advantage is that NDIX has connected the network to its digital marketplace for ICT services. There, more than 90 providers offer every conceivable business service, such as internet, IPTV, VoIP and cloud services.
The SBBU Foundation, together with GFU, owns the fiber-optic network at the industrial estates in Uden. Maarten van Helden, park manager at SBBU, speaks of a successful project: "Our customers have been able to switch to the new network at their own pace in recent months. Meanwhile, all 120 customers are over. We unburdened them during the migration, so that it went smoothly. Everything has been delivered on time. "
Dennis Seppenwoold, project manager at NDIX adds: "We are very satisfied with the progress of the project. The cooperation with SBBU and GFU is excellent. After all, they already have 10 years of experience with the fiber optic network and its exploitation. "
Maarten van Helden is also enthusiastic about the collaboration: "We were looking for an expositor that would suit us well. NDIX, like us, works with an open model and offered us the opportunity to give our customers a choice from a multitude of ICT service providers. NDIX also fits with us in terms of company, structure and flexibility. NDIX is big in small networks. "
Expansion of network
There are 350 companies located on the Udense industrial estates, 120 of which are connected to the fiber optic network. Van Helden: "Our aim is to connect more companies, so that the costs per user can fall even further. Many SMEs are at the turning point to switch to fiber optics, because old technologies such as the copper connection no longer suffice. "For them, lower speeds are available at a cheaper entry rate. Van Helden: "They can already get a fiber connection from 99 euros per month. With us a connection of 100Mbit / s is the most popular. The small and medium-sized businesses can do a great job in this. A 100 Mbit / s connection is available from 127 euros. In addition, there are the costs for the chosen provider and possibly the ICT services. "
In case of problems, the users can contact NDIX 24 hours a day. Seppenwoold says: "Their ICT environment is becoming increasingly important for companies. Together with the SBBU we offer a reliable fiber optic network. Our technical department therefore monitors the operation of the network and in the event of problems the affiliated companies can contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "
NDIX manages fiber optic networks as an open operator and connects business parks with the NDIX network in the Netherlands and Germany. All affiliated organizations have access to the digital NDIX marketplace, where they can freely choose from the ICT services of nearly 100 providers. The fiber optic connections are managed and monitored 24/7 by the technical department of NDIX. There are now more than 1750 companies and institutions connected to the NDIX network.
