Welcome to the home of GIG Network Solutions, your leading fibre optic cable and communications equipment installer on the South African Eastern Seaboard.
GIG Network Solutions is a fibre optic specialist concern, based in Amanzimtoti, Kwa-Zulu Natal.
The Company offers technical expertise with regards to the planning, installation and maintenance of existing and new fibre optic communications networks for a variety of applications and environments.
The company was established in 1998 to specifically service the fibre optic requirements of the data cabling industry, however, as a result of the “guilty by association” syndrome (the fibre guy is always the one to blame!), the Company was forced to redefine it’s skills and capabilities to include installation and fault finding of copper cabling systems and the commissioning of associated communication equipment.
With the continual increase in the popularity of fibre optic cable as communications medium in Industrial and Surveillance environments, we adjusted our focus and directed our efforts away from benign office networks to harsh and hazardous industrial and mining applications.
The components and materials used in projects are of the highest quality available in order to ensure optimum reliability and performance in environments ranging from benign offices in the City’s central business district to hostile fuel refineries and chemical manufacturing plants.
Our employees are required to attend regular occupational safety training courses. Every member of our team is chronically aware of the importance of, and understands, the rules and regulations of the Occupational Health and Safety act. Safety regulations are designed to not only to ensure the safety of an individual but of everyone.
