Route 21 Corporate Park, the R2 billion office park development near Irene, Pretoria, is to become one of the first office park to install an open access fibre network, providing “unrivalled communications potential for current and future tenants," Org Geldenhuys, a trustee of the Route 21 property association.


DFA will be installing a R10-million dark fibre infrastructure into a gated business community. The DFA infrastructure allows all registered service providers the opportunity to provide companies in the R21 Office Park a specialised range of services. “End users can now request a basket of high speed services from their preferred service provider,” says Gustav Smit, CEO of DFA.

DFA will make use of highly mechanised trenching standards, provided by Muvoni Weltex, to speed up service delivery and make available the infrastructure to ISP’s. The infrastructure is scheduled to be commissioned by April 2010, with “services going live shortly afterwards” says Smit.
Dark Fibre Africa is an “Open Access” infrastructure provider, who provides fibre interconnectivity between ISP’s, operators and their clients. The fibre infrastructure enables high speed multi-service communications and spans over 1000kms in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
