Critical Communications

Altron Nexus is a professional communications network provider. We are the only commercial ICASA-licensed radio trunking network operator in South Africa. Since 1994, we have provided network and airtime services for wireless voice and data communication for telemetry, dispatching, alarm monitoring, fleet management, security and other business- and mission-critical applications.

The network is made up of a combination of analogue, digital (DMR), and IP radio technologies to cater to a broad range of requirements. The network coverage is provided by over 300 analogue and digital (DMR) sites nationwide, augmented by an LTE-based over-the-top service. Our networks enable disparate groups and teams to communicate on one platform, anywhere in the country. This network has been exceptionally managed over the years to become the most significant operational MPT1327 network in the world.

Altron Nexus operates a 24/7/365 NOC (Network Operating Centre) facility that supports our networks and others such as the South African Police Service, Gautrain, the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa, GSMR and the fishing fleet in Cape Town.

Largest critical communications network in Africa

Altron Nexus built and maintains some of the largest narrowband networks in Africa – including the SAPS Gauteng and Western Cape Municipal TETRA networks and recently the eThekwini Tetra Network. Altron Nexus is responsible for the Gauteng Provincial Broadband Network Build, Operate and Transfer project which has, to date, been delivered ahead-of-time, to specification and within budget. Other projects include the Limpopo Provincial Broadband project, Tshwane Municipal Broadband network, Wi-Fi network deployment in Ekurhuleni, DMR network in Mozambique and SCADA deployments for Eskom and Umgeni water in KwaZulu-Natal.
