Air Connect provides dependable connectivity throughout diverse South African landscapes, including remote areas and challenging terrain, by harnessing radio waves. This wireless solution eliminates the costs and logistical hurdles associated with wired connections such as fiber, offering adaptable speeds ranging from 5Mbps to 500Mbps+ to accommodate a wide range of business requirements.

Marisa Trisolino, CEO at CMC Networks, expressed great enthusiasm for Air Connect, describing it as a significant innovation for their customers in South Africa. She emphasized the company’s commitment to driving digital advancement across Africa and highlighted Air Connect’s role in achieving this goal.

With a service level objective (SLO) ranging from 3 to 10 days, Air Connect offers swift installation, catering to customers anticipating a fiber build. It serves as a rapid temporary deployment to minimize network downtime and can serve as an active backup following fiber rollouts in a software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) overlay deployment. This enhances network resilience, redundancy, and uptime.

He emphasized its swift installation, high-speed connectivity, enhanced network uptime, and unwavering reliability. Dornan also highlighted the company’s dedication to expanding its portfolio to adapt to evolving customer requirements, ensuring seamless achievement of business objectives without connectivity-related delays.
