TechAccess Partners with Packet Power to Bring Top-Tier Power and Environmental Monitoring Solutions to African Data Centres

TechAccess and Packet Power announced their new partnership today, bringing Packet Power’s full suite of innovative power and environmental monitoring solutions to sub-Saharan Africa amid ongoing energy crises.

Johannesburg, South Africa, May 22, 2023—With ongoing rolling blackouts, also known as loadshedding, the new partnership between Johannesburg-based TechAccess and USA-based Packet Power is sure to be a big win for African businesses and data centres looking to minimize risks, lower costs, and improve operational effectiveness.

Data centres throughout Africa are challenged with regular power disruptions and loadshedding. By joining forces with Packet Power, TechAccess will now be able to help critical facilities managers retrofit their existing operations with seamless, secure and simple wireless power and environmental monitoring solutions that are vendor agnostic. Packet Power’s proprietary wireless network protocol both speeds up the install process and makes collecting data incredibly easy for operators. They can look at their backup systems, capacity planning, submetering, and cooling costs quickly from anywhere at any time.

“Packet Power offers a complete solution,” says Jaxon Martin, TechAccess’s Chief Technology Officer. (They) “have the hardware (and) software side, offering the client a full package from start to finish. I think there’s a lot of value there.” Packet Power’s Chief Executive Officer, Nate Nomeland, shared, “We are thrilled to begin our partnership with TechAccess as we look to pursue our mutual growth goals in Africa and beyond. TechAccess has proven to be a strong solutions provider in the data centre space and, together, we believe we can augment the existing offering to customers.”
