Lancashire, UK – 2023
We all know that XGS-PON connectivity with a full-fibre network unlocks masses of opportunities for many kinds of businesses, but you might not be aware of how much the construction industry can exploit XGS-PON to its advantage. From streamlining monitoring and control to visualising builds and workflows using the latest technological advancements, XGS-PON has the potential to change the construction industry in the UK.
Early-stage visualisation with VR and AR
XGS-PON can offer the construction industry incredible opportunities, even in the earliest stages. With high-speed connectivity, XGS-PON supports seamlessly integrating virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) into construction workflows.
Stakeholders and clients can use these two technologies to partake in more immersive design reviews, transcending the capability of 3D models and 2D blueprints.
Construction and site managers can also conduct virtual site inspections and engage with a more interactive project visualisation approach that can help spot errors and opportunities to optimise the build early in the process.
BIM and data-intensive applications
The construction industry is littered with bandwidth-hungry technology that results in network congestion and latency, one of which is Building Information Modelling applications. These are integral to modern construction projects, offering access to 3D modelling and design revisions for architects, contractors, engineers and more.
With up to 10Gbps of bandwidth, XGS-PON offers the symmetrical upstream and downstream speeds needed to support the rapid exchange of large BIM files between multiple stakeholders, helping to give construction projects a well-needed productivity and time management boost to accelerate decision-making.
The emergence of smart city technology and inward investment projects to make the UK a smart-city dominant country offers the construction industry significant opportunities.
By implementing XGS-PON full fibre into their construction projects, the construction industry can support integrating smart building systems, including energy usage management, lighting control, heating, ventilation and air conditioning management devices and security systems. Not only does this mean that the construction industry can have a dominant influence on improving energy efficiency, but it can also impact the overall value of the constructed facility.
