Lite Access Technologies has partnered with its first certified South African installation and sales partner, to cover the South African telecommunications market for the sale and installation of Lite Access microduct solutions.
Headquartered in Johannesburg, Nulani (Pty.) is a turnkey solutions company that specializes in fiber optic networks solutions, including planning, civil works, project management and fiber works. Nulani was involved in establishing the mechanical in-road trenching (micro-trenching) as a new technology in South Africa and its directors are widely regarded as the nation’s authority on micro-trenching.
Their achievements include various multi-million-rand deployments for Telkom SA and Alcatel-Lucent, including rolling out GSM, 2G and 3G networks in rural and extreme rural areas.
“South Africa is a huge potential market for Lite Access, and we are very pleased to be partnering with the professionals at Lite Access South Africa to bring a new level of connectivity and service to the South African market,” said Michael Priest, chief executive officer of Lite Access.
Archie Cassim, Head of Infrastructure Services states, “Lite access has provided us with a proprietary microduct, preloaded with fiber and connectors, that will greatly reduce the time and cost to connect new customers to our client’s fiber optic backbone. Their innovative deployment tools and products, combined with our experience and resources, make for a natural partnership.”
