AFREN Technologies (Pty) Ltd is a High-Performance IP Backhaul Solutions provider that specialises in high- demand, high-availability licensed, and license-exempt, Microwave and Millimetre solutions to both the private and government sectors.
With pioneering technical expertise, AFREN takes pride in partnering with the best and brightest research and development networking team in SA. We follow ‘Best Practice’ methodology based on leading industry standards, ensuring that our clients’ expectations are not only met but often exceeded.
As a result of South African Broadband initiatives (aided by the increased density of Fiber rollout across the country) there has been increased need for Enterprise providers to improve upon current solutions offered to their customers. The aggressive connectivity market in SA has opened up a mindset from customers that need and want faster speeds, better connections, with stability as pre-requisite. Standards are constantly being raised to meet the demand. Our commitment is to always stay ahead of the curve.
Where fiber is not readily available, an alternative or complimentary solution is required. The Starlink licensed (7GHz, 11GHz, 23 GHz ultra high-capacity) and license-exempt (17GHz) range of gear is not a new technology, but constant improvements together with performance and pricing have given the brand increasing traction as a disruptive product in global markets. With backhaul its primary implementation, its increased deployment (100+ links active in South Africa over the last 18 months) shows growing confidence in its reliability and fiber-like performance. Apart from its performance as a high-speed back-haul solution, the technology is effectively used as both a bridge for fiber termination (i.e. to provide fiber speeds wirelessly until fiber can be implemented in various scenarios) as well as a fixed long-term solution e.g. for rural deployments. The Starlink range is a solid, proven alternative/complimentary technology to fiber and a cost-effective method to grow a network in a speedy fashion.
We are able to offer enterprises, irrespective of size, a solution that performs above general industry standards at a cost effective rate. AFREN has the ability to deliver a range of Microwave products to fit seamlessly into any existing network in a manner that few, if any, competitors can match in 3 key areas:

At AFREN, we can customise every project to meet our clients’ specific requirements. We’ve set a new standard in the industry and guarantee an unmatched level of client satisfaction.
