Mobile Data

An APN can be used as a primary link to connect devices that are based in remote locations where other connectivity options (ADSL, leased lines) are not available. It can also be used as a secondary link (failover).

APN’s are becoming widely deployed in businesses throughout South Africa and the rest of the globe. They have found their place across various business platforms including corporates, telemetry applications and point-of sale networking. They provide Inter-branch GSM connectivity for business of all size, backup of traditional leased & ADSL lines and various other platforms. From cost benefits to ease of deployment, APNs provide a fast, secure alternative for business in the arena of wide-area connectivity.

As the communication protocol (3G, edge) is provided on the mobile operator’s network, redundancy is provided via the cellular provider, lowering cost to client tremendously.

The APN service can either function with standard contract SIM cards or via a cheaper data bundle deployed across multiple SIM cards.

What do we offer you?

Our managed APN solution allows you to allocate specified mobile data per user or sites with access to manage and monitor usage through a dedicated portal. This not only manages both Vodacom and MTN but also enables advanced blocking and security functionality.

How soon can I get it?

Once the initial provisioning has been completed, ordering additional sims and data is done via the portal with a 4-day turnaround time. We are able to ship the sim cards to any part of South Africa or to one assigned location. All sim cards are shipped provisioned and only are required to be allocated to a person, department or site.

Why iConnect?

iConnect provisions, ships and manages this on your behalf if you don’t have the want, need or capacity to do so. We work with your financial departs to be able to provide detailed billing reports that can be allocated to individuals, departments or companies.
