Taking connectivity and communication into Africa


It’s no secret that Africa as a continent has an overwhelming amount of untapped potential, especially in the telecommunications and connectivity market.  What Africa needs now, more than ever, is the ability to protect all its citizens by enabling them to work and educate themselves in the safety of their homes whether in urban or rural environments. This opens up new revenue streams for connectivity providers.

The major problem in terms of the development of technological networking and communication in Africa, however, is an under-developed information infrastructure. The Southern African Development Community is made up of 16 countries in southern Africa that are comprised of: Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Democratic Republice of Congo, Eswatini, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

As one of southern Africa’s leading distributors of broadband wireless, networking, SDWAN, WiFI, IoT, security, VoIP and IP video products, MiRO can help these SADC countries to develop their communication infrastructure and meet the SADC’s objectives. MiRO already has a fast-growing distribution footprint across Africa and understands how these countries work and their connectivity needs.

MiRO empowers Africa’s service providers, technology integrators and resellers to connect consumers, the public and private sectors through its best-of-breed, cutting-edge solutions from the partnerships it has with world-leading manufacturers.

These partners include both global and local brands including MikroTik, TP-Link, Grandstream, Ubiquiti Networks, Radwin, Ring, Siklu, Tenda, Uniview, Cambium Networks, and Untangle.

The expert MiRO team can assist service providers in SADC countries to deliver scalable IP convergence solutions specific to the required environment, when and where they are needed. MiRO’s online ecommerce store not only has a plethora of information available 24/7, but makes it easy and convenient for partners to purchase their solutions, without having to wait for business hours.

miro.co.za enables users to build their own quotes, view stock availability at all the branches and use real-time order tracking to accurately plan inventory and installations. Supporting this, the MiRO technical and sales team is just a click away.
