• Vodafone expands connectivity portfolio for channel partners

        • Vodafone has expanded its connectivity portfolio in the partner channel to include SoGEA and FTTP for business customers.  

          With traditional phone lines becoming redundant by 2025, Vodafone is now offering two new ways to connect: 

          • SoGEA – Single Order Generic Ethernet Access – provides one connection, all through the Internet, with no need for a separate telephone line. Businesses will have everything they need for home and broadband connectivity in a single order. 
          • FTTP – Fibre to the Premise – removes the need for traditional street cabinets and copper wires and enables the fastest available broadband speeds. It allows businesses to connect broadband directly, without a traditional phone line. 

          Vodafone’s SoGEA product offer businesses of all sizes a replacement for analogue copper lines that is easy to order, install and fix with minimal disruption to service and has lower in-life running costs than Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) with the ability to overlay Voice over IP (VoIP) services. To complement SoGEA, Vodafone’s FTTP offers faster download speeds of up to 900Mb/s by using fibre optic lines that travel all the way to the doorstep. FTTP can carry more data than copper alternatives and has fewer issues with service loss, buffering and bandwidth limits.

          Kathy Quashie, Head of Indirect Business, Vodafone UK said, “a significant shift to a more flexible working styles has called for connectivity that offers more than just a basic service. Businesses are moving away from traditional connectivity products to cloud-based connectivity and collaboration products, requiring more dependability and speed from broadband solutions. Vodafone’s move to SoGEA and FTTP for our Wholesale Broadband products ensures we can fully support the needs of businesses and support the closure plans for ageing telephone and broadband infrastructure for all of our partners.”
