It is ideal for use by those with multiple fixed-line trunks that are currently experiencing difficulties working, even at levels below full capacity.  This service is known as Direct Connect simply because it provides a direct access to the MTN network, and in so doing, bypasses those areas in which there are current communications problems.

Secure Connect is a branch connectivity solution offering multi-site organisations secure connectivity between sites with the addition of backup connectivity that becomes active once there is a failure on the primary link.
