FTTX

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.

 

Should you have any suggestions or queries please feel free to share them!

Fine-tuning services and solutions

This year South Africa has faced diverse challenges that affect all of us in one way or another. To meet these challenges and adapt to change, we at EES Africa have relooked our corporate strategy, and fine-tuned and tailored our services and solutions to enhance their relevance to our clients and prospective clients.

 

Our ventures this year in Nigeria and Botswana form part of our revised strategy. One of our goals is to expand our footprint in Africa and grow our business in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. We have a new partner in Lagos and new offices in Gaborone. Our Botswana offices will initially be headed up by Anton Hochleutner, EES Africa’s Human Resources & Sales Director, and we are in the process of appointing local people in the country to fill the positions of Engineer, Project Manager and Draughtsman.       

   

Thank you to all our clients and associates for your support this year. We look forward to a New Year bright with potential and filled with positive, proactive developments.  

 

We wish you and your loved ones a happy Christmas and a peaceful festive season.

Digital transformation – keeping pace with progress

A technological revolution of unsurpassed dimensions, digital transformation is taking place at breakneck speed and is radically changing the face of client interactions. Consumers are becoming ever more demanding, and suppliers and service providers need to confront tough new challenges to stay ahead of their game.


Implications of digital transformation are two fold:
- Changing communication with clients;
- Optimising your company’s technological offerings and operational efficiency.

Leaders should aim to capitalise on growth areas, erode market share of traditional competition, and adopt an entrepreneurial spirit of experimentation making use of new and flexible approaches.

From My Pen

The race to implement FTTH / FTTB

“The staggering speeds of Fiber-to- the-home (FTTH) and Fiber-to- the-business (FTTB) can touch every industry, every home and every individual. This transformation will come at a pace we can barely imagine and change our expectations of what technology can do in our lives.”

 

These rapid developments in FTTH / FTTB technology were pivotal issues addressed at the FTTH Council Africa’s annual Conference in Cape Town, which I attended last month. There are tremendous opportunities in the delivery of FTTH / FTTB solutions in South Africa and it was extremely beneficial to share ideas with various industry players. This year one of the topics on which the Conference focused was the community and the benefits of the technology to gated residential communities and security estates.

 

How can FTTH / FTTB best drive value in these communities and estates? We at EES Africa are utilizing our experience to design the network, project manage its implementation and optimize the solutions this technology offers. 

 

Please be in touch to discuss your FTTH / FTTB requirements further. We look forward to exploring all opportunities with you.

Digital transformation is changing the face of client interactions

In today’s increasingly competitive marketplace, how do we maximise two-way communication with clients and potential clients and build and maintain brand loyalty? How do we step up the relevance of our offerings, services and solutions against a backdrop of technical transformation?

 

In the recent white paper, ‘Digital Transformation - Keeping Pace With Progress’, I discuss how digital transformation, which is taking place at breakneck speed, is radically changing the face of client interactions and opening up increased levels of client engagement and service.

 

Our EES Africa value proposition focuses on translating technology into tangible deliverables, and one of the objectives at the top of our to-do list is therefore to ensure we continue to keep pace with digital transformation. 

 

We'd love you to share your thoughts and ideas on the topic with us. This will optimise two-way communication channels between ourselves and our stakeholders, and enable us to enhance the ways in which we can best address and meet your needs.

Bradley
