Maximize client productivity

We don’t sell products, we develop them.


An Original Equipment Manufacturer

“Looking after network resources has just become simpler.”

The world has become very impersonal with mass technology platforms, but we still need personal solutions. Launched in 2010, The Packet Hub is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and managed network security provider. We don’t sell products; we develop them.

For our clients, this means effective network security solutions and exceptional real-time support. Our vision is simple: Maximize client productivity. We do this by securing network connectivity and accelerating service delivery.

What makes us the Right Solution?

“We don’t just sell firewalls, we deliver solutions”

There are many network security products globally. To offer competitive value, we address the most critical gaps in the market: Support, Customization and Local Knowledge.

Superior Support

Sizeable experience in network and security solutions means that what we offer works and it continues working. Ask yourself, “how long does it take to resolve simple network connectivity issues with my existing security solution and how much does this cost my business?” As a local OEM, we respond quickly, dig deeply into the underlying technology and expertly resolve connectivity issues.

Customized Solutions

We develop our own products. This means that we can change and extend our product offering quickly to meet specific client needs and broader market trends. As an example, we provide custom builds to ISPs and IT companies for satellite connectivity, traffic usage billing, capping, WIFI hotspots etc.

Local Knowledge

As local developers, we understand the South African market. Our projects with different ISP and IT service companies help us identify gaps and create innovative solutions. Extensive knowledge of local networks and challenges help us to support partnering providers and tap into new market opportunities.
