Freedom from regulatory concerns

Syrinx Communications is regulatory conscious. ICASA regulations and policies are strictly adhered to in all provided services.

Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL)

Syrinx provides an unlimited ADSL Internet service. This means that you pay for what you use without any limits. Syrinx provides both unlimited shaped and unlimited unshaped ADSL services with no contract period. A Syrinx ADSL user can view usage statistics - merely login with the supplied username & password.

Satellite Services (VSAT)

Syrinx provides both Ka and Ku Band VSAT services. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Mobile VPN Services (APN)

The APN service can either function with standard contract SIMs or via a cheaper data bundle deployed across multiple SIMs. The SIM or multiple SIMs all use and share the bundle data as part of the APN. The benefits though are more than just cost related:
  • Security: As no two SIMs are the same, only allowed SIMs can connect to the APN.
  • Networking: Each SIM receives an IP address that is part of the corporate network - it immediately has access to allowed corporate network services and applications (e.g. Email & Fileservers).
  • Roaming: A travelling user remains part of the corporate network even when out of South Africa (with the provision that operator roaming agreements & similar data services exist at the foreign destination).
  • Management: Usage of SIMs can be individually monitored and controlled at an additional charge.
  • Prevention of Abuse: A data only SIM cannot be used to make phone-calls or send an SMS.
  • Policy Enforcement: The user is authenticated on the corporate's network domains and access to the Internet and other services are enforced as-if the user is connected within the office.
  • Lesser Degrees of Contention: An APN user connects to a corporate site without the need for tunnelling across shared Internet pathways. However, contention on the base station with others remains the same.
  • Lower bandwidth Usage: As secure tunnels are not required, data packet overheads are considerably reduced and the user typically enjoys faster response times.
  • Flexible Addressing: Either static or Dynamic IP addressing can be selected.
  • Usage Charges: Charges are not determined by the amount of time "on-line" but rather on the chosen data bundle.

VPN Services

As a business grows, it might expand to multiple sites across the country and around the world. The people working in those locations need a fast, secure and reliable way to share information across multiple networks. One popular technology to accomplish these goals is a VPN (virtual private network). A VPN is a network that uses a public telecommunication infrastructure, such as the Internet, to provide remote sites or individual users with secure access to their company network. Expensive leased line networks that can only be used by one company are being replaced by VPNs which provide the same capabilities, but at a much lower cost. To take advantage of this, most businesses have replaced leased lines with new technologies that use Internet connections without sacrificing performance and security.

Syrinx provides and proactively manages VPNs using the following access technologies: ADSL, Mobile Broadband, VSAT and Optical Fibre.
