Fiber Optics as a Business Model for Municipal Utilities
The goal of the broadband expansion of the federal and state governments is to supply all households in Germany with fiber optic by 2025. At present, the supply rate is just 6%. We see great potential here for municipal utilities to enter a new business segment or, if already existing, to expand it. The german Messstellenbetriebsgesetz (MsbG) also requires the use of intelligent metering systems. Metering point operation can be realised via fibre optics.
The fiber optic development opens up completely new options for municipal utilities:
• Entry into a new fiber optic business model for broadband supply to businesses, schools and private households
• Reading of smart meters according to the german Messstellenbetriebsgesetz (MsbG)
• Development of a WLAN offer for your area
Together with you, MICUS develops the right strategy for the expansion of the fibre optic network in your community.
With the right strategy from planning to operation
The role of public utilities
The broadband market basically has three levels of value creation. Together with you, we develop a strategy for your municipal utilities to position in the value chain.
Importance of cooperations
Cooperation with service providers is necessary for extensive participation in the value chain. We can put you in touch with service providers and support you in drawing up contracts for marketing your infrastructures.
Fibre optics pays off!
The business areas of a municipal utility can be sensibly expanded with the broadband business. It fits in with the existing fields.
Supply existing customers with new products and win new customers. With the fibre-optic network expansion, you can use the unique position of the municipal utilities and apply your existing expertise and infrastructure in a further business area. You can also benefit from the fibre-optic expansion in other areas, such as reading smart meters or setting up a WLAN offering.
