Alternative wireless connections (23/11/2017)
In certain instances it is not possible to connect network components utilised in industry with a fibre connection. Therefore alternative wireless connections must be made available.
“When wireless connections are needed for the inter-networking of devices ie. the Internet of Things (IoT), there are two key options to choose from, namely narrow-band IoT (NB-IoT) and broadband IoT”, states Bradley Hemphill, Director, EES Live (Pty) Ltd.

“The Internet of Things (IoT), which bridges the digital and physical world, is already making its mark in Africa as smart connected devices are being deployed and the use of connected hardware emerges. However, it has the potential to make a far more significant impact on the region, as long as circumstances specific to the continent are taken into consideration.”
This is according to Bradley Hemphill, Managing Director, EES Live (Pty) Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 compliant company, which provides network, electronics and electrical services and solutions. EES Live specialises in the integration of multiple system infrastructure including ICT, data centres, security, audio visual, building automation systems and special systems coordination.
Decreasing fibre installation costs (28/03/2017)
South Africa is currently experiencing phenomenal activity in the roll-out of fibre optic cables. While no-one disputes that the installation of fibre presents tremendous opportunities, the question being asked is how will this demanding initiative affect consumers’ Internet connection costs?
With speeds of up to 100 Mbps, fibre will provide unsurpassed Internet speeds. It is also exceptionally reliable, highly secure and able to withstand testing weather conditions.
