Why consider Enterprise Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi is the networking technology of choice in Enterprise environments, as it has enabled IT professionals to push for high availability techniques for the network edge, bringing them closer to users than ever before. As a result, it is imperative for companies to have high performance Enterprise Wi-Fi available for their peoples’ use. Work productivity would suffer without it.

With the ever growing demand and evolution of Wi-Fi, it can be expected that Wi-Fi nodes, Wi-Fi calling, social media focused free Wi-Fi and a much wider deployment of public Wi-Fi hotspots will become more of a reality. A wireless world has emerged and calls for investment in Wi-Fi.

Construction development continues apace

South Africa’s construction industry is currently seeing a number of impressive developments. These range from two leading-edge, multi-million rand hotel developments in Cape Town, to the new 4 Star Green rated building, FNB Acacia House, and The Boulevard, Growthpoint Properties’ new green office development, both north of Durban. And of course construction in the Sandton CBD continues apace.


A new development in Stella Rd in the heart of Sandton, which EES Africa (Pty) Ltd is proud to be a part of, is that of the new Old Mutual Emerging Markets (OMEM) Head Office. EES Africa will provide project management and design services for the communications and security systems of the approximately 40 000 m² building. An exciting project indeed!


Demand for Wi-Fi is rapidly growing and continually evolving. A wireless world has emerged and calls for investment in Wi-Fi. However, with all the advancements IT professionals still find it challenging at times to implement a solution which will cater for and support a wider range of business applications. Kim Greyling outlines and discusses the challenges in our latest white paper, ‘Why consider Enterprise Wi-Fi deployment?


We would be glad to discuss the rapid growth in Wi-Fi further and receive our clients and associates’ input and viewpoints on the topic.
