Where we come from
We have been building our network since 2001; starting with only one 64k Diginet Internet line. Since then we have grown to use multiple Fibre connections which we distribute wireless to our clients.
Projects and achievements
Wan4u supplies each year carrier Internet to over 200 LAN gamers at the LANX expo and gaming event. The total throughput was over 200Mbps and usage over 4Tb during 72hrs. Wan4u supplied Internet for the expo and public over WiFi to support the event even further. 5Ghz Airmax AC were used and achieved over 400 Mbps throughput test over 3 km distance!
Adrenaline show (Computicket)
Wan4u supplied Computicket with WiFi access for selling tickets online through Wan4u Internet. The GSM spectrum were overloaded because of all the public entering the airport. 2 x 5Ghz Airmax links were connected to our towers and distribution was done using 2.4Ghz Mikrotik product(SXT) supplying 10Mbps constant speed.
Neotel to NFMW
Wan4u went to Bellville in Cape Town to install a temporary PTP link between National Fund for Municipal Workers and Neotel. The link was needed to be installed as a short term solution, as Fibre will take up to 3 months to deploy. Wan4u used 2 x Airmax Nanobeam units to connect the 2 buildings through VLAN Trunk using Mikrotik hardware to split the SIP and DATA networks that is supplied from Neotel.
Thabazimbi to Pretoria
Wan4u created a 150 km link between Pretoria North and Thabazimbi (Kransberg) that provides Internet to North West Province. The link has been created on remote Kransberg mountain range using only solar power.
Raptor research (Vulpro) Dedicated to conservation
