BitCo has said that it offers South African businesses a one-stop connectivity solution that is based on a next-generation Ethernet telecommunications network that can be customized to provide a customer-centric solution.
Seeing the strong and growing demand for its Metro Ethernet network, the company has rolled out the product in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, Nelspruit, Pretoria and Rustenburg.
According to Metro Ethernet Forum (News - Alert), Metro Ethernet network is the network that bridges or connects geographically separated enterprise LANs while also connecting across the WAN or backbone networks that are generally owned by service providers. The Forum states that the Metro Ethernet networks provide connectivity services across Metro geographically using Ethernet as the core protocol and enabling broadband applications.
Garth van Sittert, technical director at BitCo, said that Telcos the world over are moving to Ethernet-based networks to be able to give clients that level of service -- and BitCo is setting the pace in South Africa.
Van Sittert said that Ethernet connections are much quicker to install and maintain, and the network is intrinsically more efficient and thus faster. “A client who uses our network for Internet connectivity can request for voice to be added, and the change will be effected within an hour at most.”
BitCo is a Tier 1 telecommunications company. It owns and operates its own dedicated network, and its service offering is comprehensive. The company offers all three types of service a business would require: PBX (News - Alert), Internet connectivity and last-mile connection.
“Clients want a flexible, cost-effective and comprehensive telecommunications solution that is built around their needs,” Van Sittert said, adding that the company has listened to the clients, and BitCo Metro Ethernet offers just that.
Earlier in September, BitCo completed a point of presence in Nelspruit, bringing high-speed wireless connectivity to Mpumalanga’s business and administrative capital.
