FTTX adds tremendous value to communities

South Africa has recently seen fast-paced developments in the implementation of Fiber to the x (FTTX), which includes fibre to the business (FTTB) and fibre to the home (FTTH). FTTX broadband network architecture, which makes use of optical fibre, offers unsurpassed Internet speeds and a richer broadband experience. It adds tremendous value to communities, in particular to gated residential communities and security estates, the construction of which is rapidly escalating in South Africa.

“Fibre technology can touch every community and there are tremendous opportunities in the delivery of FTTX solutions in South Africa,” says Bradley Hemphill, Managing Director of EES Live (Pty) Ltd. EES Live is a professional services company specialising in networks, data centres, security and building management systems.

EES – keeping pace with progress

We are currently experiencing a global technological revolution due to the phenomenal progress in technology which is taking place at breakneck speed throughout the world. This revolution is profoundly transforming client interactions and the way we do business.


To keep pace with this progress we have honed our services to enhance their market relevance, and this year we are focusing on networks, electronics and electrical solutions. And to better reflect our areas of focus we have changed our name to EES Live, as we believe the new name emphasises our expertise in real-time, leading edge technology in an increasingly connected world.


In particular we are involved in initiatives which contribute to the acceleration of Fiber to the x (FTTX) adoption in South Africa, essential to which is an Open Access Network (OAN).


We are privileged to be a part of the technological revolution and to work with our clients and associates to take their businesses to new heights.
