Housing Association to provide VoIP to residents
by Jan Harris
November 12, 2007
London-based Gallions Housing Association has installed wireless broadband from Motorola, with a view to eventually rolling out VoIP and IPTV services to its residents.
The housing association is currently trialling the solution, which provides affordable broadband to residents in its 150 multi-unit dwellings.
Many of the units are in high-rise blocks which would be expensive to connect to traditional broadband solutions.
Motorola has provided Broadband over Powerline (BPL), which is cost-effective and easy to deploy, as there are no wires.
The system combines radio, Ethernet, networking, HomePlug and modem technologies, providing broadband both wirelessly and over existing power lines. It was installed in just half a day.
It provides residents with a secure system, with internet access available simply by plugging a BPL modem into an available electrical socket. There is no need to install additional software.
CCTV will also be installed over the broadband network.
