National and International MPLS

Today's tools of business are video conferencing, email, internal VoIP traffic and data transfer. So companies need a provider they can rely on to grade and prioritise these critical services. MPLS Layer 2 Ethernet and Layer 3 are private and secured services transported on a fully redundant MPLS infrastructure.

 There are three basic variants to MPLS Layer 2:

  • E-Line (point-to-point) - a connection using pseudowire emulation. Offers identical quality to legacy networks with the added benefit of scalable bandwidth. Ideal for enterprises with a single site based in another country.
  • E-Tree (point-to-multipoint) - delivers Ethernet service to multiple locations. Frequently utilised by banks where information is stored centrally and accessed by multiple branches.
  • E-LAN – a VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) product which connects users without having to go through a central office. Typical users: banks, legal firms, mines and retail outlets with multiple regional offices that need to share information.

MPLS L3VPN is a secure IP-based, high-performance and any-to-any service for customers wanting private VPN throughout their network. We're the leading provider of Layer 3 in South Africa, and can extend L3VPN services to the rest of the world using our global telecoms partners.

Internet Access over Fibre

Internet Access Over Fibre

As the fastest available broadband solution, a fibre connection can make a huge difference to the commercial success of enterprise organisations. Fibre hit the African coast within the last ten years, offering speeds up to 80 x faster than ADSL and 20 x faster than wireless broadband. It's also future-proof, allowing updates to be done remotely. This minimises downtime and keeps businesses on the go. Liquid Telecom has now connected fibre from the coast to many land-locked countries, so more cities and businesses have access to reliable communications using our network.

Liquid Telecom Payments

Liquid Telecom Payments provides electronic payment and POS solutions for Africa's financial and retail sectors. From automating transactions at the point of service to authenticating, delivering, authorising and processing the entire payment cycle from start to finish.

Established in 1992 as TPS (Transaction Payment Solutions), we were acquired by the Liquid Telecom Group in 2007, and have expert Payments teams in Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, as well as software development centres in Harare and London. With years of experience supplying the African market we understand the issues you may face, and can work with you - from advising best practice to implementing the end-to-end solution that's right for your business.

This experience, and our network of local teams, has enabled us to become the region's leading payment solution provider, with clients including Africa's largest banks, retailers and financial institutions.

We offer a secure environment for corporate business applications, e-Commerce transactions, websites, networking apparatus and streaming servers. And our hosting facilities provide direct connection to local and international exchanges via our own fibre network, with the added benefit of instant access and full redundancy.

Wi-Fi

The perfect complement to a high speed Internet connection is a reliable Wi-Fi network. Liquid Telecom provides a carrier-grade managed Wi-Fi services for offices and public locations. Our engineers produce a detailed Wi-Fi design that ensures complete area coverage with no dead spots.

For many businesses, offering reliable Wi-Fi to your guests is either an expectation or a differentiator. Our offering for public Wi-Fi includes a captive portal customised for your brand, ability to control the duration of free service for your guests, and flexible forms of registration and authentication, enabling you to better understand and interact with your guests. Public locations can also form part of our Africa Hub, which includes your business in our Wi-Fi hotspot finder and those of our international partners, making it easier for new customers to find your business.

Internet Access over Wireless

By delivering Africa's widest broadband coverage, we connect enterprises all over the country, regardless of location. We provide the out-of-town offices of many multinational companies with the same fast, reliable, secure network that their head offices enjoy. And because our wireless broadband network is connected to our Pan African fibre backbone, you can rely on us to keep your businesses connected to each other and the rest of the world.

VSAT  

It takes an African company to really understand the challenges of connecting businesses in Africa. And Liquid VSAT most definitely is from Africa and for Africa. We know that there are places that fibre hasn' t reached and won't for quite some time. It's why Liquid VSAT offers you business-speed internet via satellite anywhere in Africa. If you're a bank we make it possible to open fully-linked branches in remote towns. If you're a mine we'll enable you to operate seamlessly miles from anywhere. If you're in the tourism industry we'll help your beautifully isolated Safari lodge offer customers internet connections they'd expect when paying for a luxury getaway. And these are just a few of the ways our award-winning satellite service can help African businesses flourish. 

In short, Liquid VSAT makes high-speed internet possible for business in Africa, no matter where that business is.
