FibreSmart continues to focus on FTTB as the currently directed priority. The Research Objectives for the remainder of 2015 are as follows:
1. To identify the most attractive areas, including office parks and other areas. Tenants in commercial buildings
are identified through street surveys and geotagging. GIS analysis techniques are applied to confirm area
2. To create a concise profile of each tenant in selected, prioritised precincts, on a prioritised basis. Profile
includes identifying various stakeholders and decision-making units, and how they relate to one another.
It also includes a basic profile of current telecoms services used and suppliers, including ISPs.
Note that, while FTTx is the main focus of the research, non-fibre access alternatives may equally be considered as part of the overall building access solution.
