Network builder Fibrus is deploying a gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) networks across parts of both Northern Ireland and the North of England.
Network builder Fibrus, which is deploying a gigabit-capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) networks across parts of both Northern Ireland and the North of England, has been awarded four key accreditations, including the ISO 45001, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certifications for health and safety, environmental and quality management.
On top of that, the operator has also been awarded ISO 27001 accreditation, which is the global standard for information security management systems. All of this will help to raise the operator’s profile, not least by demonstrating their commitment to adopting best practice in telecommunications.
So far Fibrus has deployed their full fibre network – using a mix of commercial build and public investment – to 190,000 premises. After that, they have a target of raising this to 500,000 premises by March 2024 (around 350,000 of which will be in Northern Ireland).
John Evans, Head of HSEQ at Fibrus, said: “These externally-awarded accreditations highlight our commitment to quality, safety, and environmental considerations. These underpin the design, planning and roll-out of our wider infrastructure across Northern Ireland and Great Britain as part of our crusade to eradicate digital poverty, particularly in rural areas.
As a responsible business, we recognise that we have an important part to play in protecting our environment for future generations. That’s why working to these standards will help assure our customers, colleagues and stakeholders that sustainability is an integral component of our wider plans.”
