White Cell Networks new ‘plug and use’ technology unlocks fiber optics full potential, significantly stepping up the speed of fiber optic data streaming within homes and businesses.
It has long been acknowledged that the government’s vision to make New Zealand’s digital network one of the most complete and fastest in the world depends on laying a completely new network of fibre optics that runs to every home and business across the country.
Laying fibre optic cable in streets and connecting to buildings does not fully deliver on the government’s vision because the devices inside homes and businesses still use decades old technology between the users of data and the fibre optic network.
Many of the huge benefits promised from using fibre optics can’t be delivered because data streaming is choked immediately on entering the building.
White Cell Networks (WCN) has created a solution to this problem at their Greenhithe innovation lab. Before Anthony Ardelean, the CEO of WCN, brought this optical technological solution to life, only a small number of people had full access to the wide-ranging benefits of fibre.
Now everyone can have access to all of the benefits promised from the fibre optic network.
“I have taken a traditional technology and converted that into a very advanced platform that has then been simplified to a process that is easy for anybody to be able to assemble and connect themselves and see immediate increase in data speeds as high as 80 percent,” says Ardelean.
“In addition we have been able to keep our product at a level that is affordable to most of the population.”
What Ardelean and his team at WCN have created is technology that will help increase business productivity within New Zealand wherever it is connected.
The business also has a big opportunity in the global residential market where the everyday consumer uses technology for living, entertainment and working from home.
With WCN’s innovative technology, the government’s vision for a high-speed Internet-connected nation is now possible.
The business is growing offshore and now has a regional office in Australia. WCN has customers in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands and aims to push into the residential market in Australia, US, Canada and Europe over the next five years.
However, the best place for WCN’s innovation laboratory and headquarters will remain in Auckland North’s innovation district.
