Infrastructure Technology

Most companies and organisations have a predefined ICT strategy, and often rollout new infrastructure without taking their business strategy into account. This is the first key difference in our approach – we aim to first understand your business objectives and then design and implement the infrastructure to meet your business requirements.

AIT recognizes that the network infrastructure of the past has little or no resemblance to that of the future; that the limited connectivity options on offer a few years ago have changed so dramatically that the provision of infrastructure is no longer within the framework of even the most progressive strategies of 5 years ago. We offer full wireless and multi-premise infrastructure designs in addition to more traditional infrastructure solutions. AIT can assist at any stage of an organisation’s infrastructure implementation – we offer services ranging from simple mapping and documenting an organisation’s infrastructure to implementing an end-to-end infrastructure solution that supports your business needs.

AIT offers full turnkey support throughout South Africa in the following environments:

  • Structured Cabling & Connectivity
  • Datacentre and Server Room Environments
  • Specialised Cabinets, UPS Solutions & Backup Generators
  • Portable Modular Datacentre Environments
  • Enterprise Switching & Routing

AIT has invested significantly in procuring modern testing, fibre splicing and fibre blowing/floating equipment as well as in training for all staff on the optimum use of these devices. All of our technical staff members are permanently employed and operate according to national cabling standards.

AIT is able to offer best in class solutions through the ongoing:

  • Investment in staff by offering technical skills training as well as Health and Safety training & Career Development
  • Investment in Supply Chain partnerships, thereby ensuring we offer the latest technology at the best prices
  • Investment in the development of SMME’s through training and skills transfer
  • Investment in Customer Partnerships by offering opportunities to attend new product / technology info events
  • Investment in our environment by encouraging and following ‘green’ building practices as well as being Occupational Health & Safety (OHSAS 18001) compliance.

 


Hardware & Software Solutions Provision

In order to remain competitive in the current economic climate, businesses must respond rapidly to changing market conditions while also avoiding the high fixed costs of a large infrastructure. As part of our managed services, clients have access to a specialized procurement team.

An IT platform is made up of hardware and software components – most of which we source and install for you. Our strong relationships with most of the major IT vendors and distributors enable us to provide a comprehensive service and pricing for most of your IT needs. This means you only need to work with one partner, rather than spend your valuable time chasing a multitude of suppliers.

Fibre Optic Networks

This is a speciality service which includes network applications for LANs, MANs, WANs, SANs, intrabuilding and inter-building communications, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and telecommunication networks.

Optical fibre better accommodates the increasingly complex network architectures while offering bandwidth durability, ease of installation, immunity to EMI/RFI, toleration of harsh environmental conditions and long-term economies. There are two types of optic fibre: multimode fibre and single-mode fibre.

Multimode fibre is best designed for short transmission distances and is suited for use in LAN systems and video surveillance.

Single-mode fibre is designed for longer transmission distances, making it suitable for longdistance telephony and multichannel television broadcast systems.

Our fibre optic installation teams are certified to perform the following speciality services:

  • Fusion and mechanical splicing of Multimode and Single-mode fibre
  • End-to-end attenuation testing with OLTS (Optical Loss Test Set) and OTDR at their corresponding wavelengths with Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS) and OTDR.
  • OLTS and OTDR signature trace documentation for as-built records, performance records and detailed fibre optic network design drawings
  • Air blown fibre and mini fibre cable services
