Q-KON networks for Swaziland schools

SA-based managed network services provider Q-KON's HotZONE connectivity concept is being rolled out in several schools in Swaziland.

Through its Swaziland-based client, Nkosiphile Innovations, the HotZONE public broadband access networks, facilitated through Wavion wireless network technology, have been installed at several schools in the region.

Nkosiphile Innovations, located in Manzini, operates under the hotspot of local communications services provider, Bulemba. The company has chosen to partner with Q-KON to establish and run a HotZONE in order to provide locals in Manzini with fast, secure and reliable wireless broadband connectivity.

The HotZONE has been a success and stakeholders are eager to add this resource to the computer labs at surrounding schools. The expectation is that learners will benefit from online resources that address logistical issues such as the availability of textbooks.

Institutions short-listed for the HotZONE implementation include St. Theresa Primary School, St. Theresa High School, Salesian Primary School and Salesian High School.

Phile Msibi, spokesperson for Nkosiphile Innovations, says the company is working in collaboration with another partner responsible for the construction and installation of computer labs, to establish the HotZONES. The technology facilitates a fast network infrastructure and has great potential for growth he says.

"It is very reliable and the bandwidth is available at whatever rate you want to operate," says Msibi. "Q-KON offers me the best service and their technical expertise is the best I have ever experienced."
