In a project named Hub Connect, full rollout of the services to each individual business unit started in earnest in November 2020 when MySky Networks came on board as a partner. The company provides the physical networking infrastructure as Managed Services to each unit, including:

  • Network cabling to each unit
  • Network switches
  • WiFi
  • UPSs for power stability
  • Firewall security (for which there is massive demand)
  • Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)
  • 10 Mbps internet breakout with the Internet Service Provider MetroFibre Networx

The partnership between Riversands I-Hub and MySky Networks has proved to be a sweet deal for both organisations. MySky occupies a unit on the campus as their Head Office and base for its team of engineers. “Established in 2014, the company prides itself on being agile and dynamic with a keen focus on technical capabilities, as proven by its Platinum Partner Status with Aruba Networks and Advanced MSSP Partner Status with Fortinet. It has 12 employees, and the ability to provide IT Managed Services nationally with presence in both Johannesburg and Cape Town.” said Jamie Carruthers, chief sales and operations officer for MySky Networks.
