Client Specific Solutions
Responsive & Flexible
FibreCo’s unique responsive and flexible attitude in developing and tailoring specific solutions, ensures clients get what they need, when they need it. Our approach allows clients to quickly and effortlessly scale up their network as their business grows while guaranteeing competitive economics and technological leadership.
FibreCo offers technical assistance with optical and network design and provides detailed transparent design information based on client requirements, including fibre maps and network system information.
This unique lit fibre service provides clients with almost limitless fibre capacity as well as the technical and economic benefits of actual ownership without having to build or manage the required optical infrastructure and at a lower cost.
Managed Fibre™ simulates the economic profile of fibre ownership through a fixed monthly recurring cost with a once-off investment for capacity upgrades, i.e. clients can scale capacity as and when required simply by upgrading the transmission equipment.
Managed Fibre™ allows clients to be in complete control their ICT spend thus managing the spiralling cost of communication.
Managed Fibre™ benefits:
- Any capacity, any time from 10Gbps-100Gbps-1Tbps;
- Economics of fibre with the ease of managed capacity. By bridging the gap between capacity and dark fibre the benefits of fibre ownership are realised without having to manage an optical network;
- Instant almost unlimited capacity across the entire FibreCo national network;
The flexibility of Managed Fibre™ enable clients to lead the market and provide innovative products and services to their customers without the fear of increasing bandwidth.
Submarine Cable Connectivity
FibreCo is in a unique position to provide capacity across its national terrestrial fibre-optic network using bespoke optical transmission system configured optimally for the purpose of interconnecting the submarine cable-landing stations on the East and West coast of South Africa.
This product will provide owners of submarine cable capacity on the WACS, Seacom, EaSSY, SAT3 and SAFE systems with a faster, low-latency and more economical route around the southern tip of Africa to create:
A much shorter route between East and West Africa than is currently available through Europe
An alternative intercontinental route between Asia and Europe/the Americas to the existing route through Egypt and Eastern Europe.
Given FibreCo’s carrier-neutral, open-access model, it can offer access to this bespoke system on the basis of true-ownership economics with associated infrastructure-ownership benefits.
FibreCo’s pricing and product configuration are specifically tailored to suit international carriers wanting to bypass the South African market, although drop-off options into Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and other cities can be catered for on the core DWDM FibreCo Network.
The ring architecture is a highly resilient system which mitigates any risk of downtime on the terrestrial system.
High-speed, high capacity networks are critical to the future of the world’s internet and digital economy. FibreCo’s network is designed for emerging technologies and is completely future proofed for gigabit and terabit broadband needs.
In partnership with its clients, FibreCo provides bespoke end to end layer 1 and layer 2 connectivity solutions across South Africa ranging from fibre ownership to high capacity and complex managed networking solutions in support of our clients connecting, ISPs, government and enterprise.
FibreCo’s unique responsive and flexible attitude in developing and tailoring specific solutions, ensures our clients get exactly what they need.
In today’s broadband market of exploding traffic volumes, networks, ISPs and content providers peer to exchange their traffic in order to achieve cost and latency efficiencies. NAPAfrica is a neutral, layer 2 Internet eXchange (IX) point, located within each Teraco data centre facility in South Africa.
Instead of costly multiple direct links to different providers, a single peering point allows multiple networks and ISPs to interconnect using an exchange environment.
FibreCo’s state-of-the-art network is capable of transmitting ultra-fast broadband capacity from any of its 52 county wide points of presence to any of the NAPAfrica Internet exchanges (IXs) across the country, allowing peers to exchange their traffic and achieve:
- Reduced costs in local bandwidth;
- Reduced latency with simplified routing and direct interconnects;
- Improved performance by bypassing potential traffic bottlenecks;
- Increased resilience by offering convenient multiple network connection options;
- Access to global content from Akamai, Cloudflare, Google, Microsoft and Netflix to name just a few
- Direct access to NAPAfrica as part of the FibreCo solution
These benefits are realised without additional capital outlay at the Internet exchange. Connectivity options and content demands within South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world are growing. Network and Content Providers are reaping the benefits of exchanges where traffic can be exchanged easily.
One of FibreCo’s key differentiators is its ability to customise SLAs, reporting and other product features in line with specific client needs, providing clients with a bespoke service even when the solution requires the integration of other operator networks.
FibreCo’s clients are able to utilize capacity on the FibreCo network and to burst into higher bandwidth amounts as and when needed which further enables scalability and flexibility in bandwidth for rapidly evolving requirements.
FibreCo provides management and implementation of fibre infrastructure to (and within) Malls and multi-tenanted properties and forms a strategic partnership with property owners.
FibreCo secures clients data at the Physical Layer when it leaves the premises. By taking encryption to the physical network level, information can be safeguarded as it moves outside the walls of the business with no loss of capacity or performance.
Managed Light is a lit fibre service allowing clients to connect directly to a wavelength on the FibreCo network. With 10Gbps and 100Gbps options available, clients can connect their own Layer2 or Layer3 devices hosted in the FibreCo Open Access facilities.
With FibreCo’s network strategically designed to connect the IP Transit community at Cable Landing Stations and Internet Exchanges (IXs) across the country, operators have the ability to deliver IP Transit and other services on remote ports at any of FibreCo’s 52 country wide points of presence.
