Ariantec Boosts Up IT Capability with Australian Support

Ariantec Global Bhd, an ACE listed ICT company with core business activities on the following areas:
  1. Network Infrastructure Optimization
  2. Security Solution
  3. Professional Services
What I really admire about them is the availability of Ariantec Maintenance Support and Services (AMSS), which is a support services provided 24 x 7 for network infrastructure support.

Today, they announced a boost up of next level partnership with existing vendor Australia-based Exinda, who is a major global brand in the IT area of Wide Area Network (WAN) optimization and application acceleration platforms.

Ariantec and Exinda started their vendor-reseller relationship since 3 years ago, thanks to the business match up efforts exercised by Austrade.

Today's boost up next level partnership which is accompanied by a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing witnessed by Austrade's Senior Trade Investment Commissioner, Mr. Paul Martins.

Following this MoU, Ariantec and Exinda will be able to work more closely with each other on the technology side, much to technical collaborations on a more 'intimacy' basis rather than just trading. This can be recognized in terms of solutions and product integrations, best practices sharing, joint R & D efforts and etc.

The idea of WAN optimization is really about complementing the slow network infrastructure for business purposes, particularly in Malaysia. The network will always be slower if no optimization is done on it, due to unregulated usage of networking resources.

This is particular true when an organization has a WAN network which consists of the HQ and branches over an given geographical area. By implementing WAN optimization and application acceleration solution, such organizations are able to optimize their investments on leased line network infrastructures and there is a also a trend happening which customers may opt to switch from leased line network to public sharing network for better cost saving.

Exinda's products come into the picture of WAN optimization and application acceleration in three major benefits:
  1. Provide visibility using monitoring tools.
  2. Provide control such as regulating capacity.
  3. Provide optimization in terms of acceleration and prioritization.
Exinda products work by having your to-be-optimized network infrastructure merging into a single point of access and control which is called the Exinda Service Delivery Point (SDP).

According to Exinda's CEO (Con Nikolouzakis), WAN optimization is a 2.5 billion dollar business.

Ariantec hopes to leverage on such collaboration to generate a 30% growth and is targeting the financial institution as the more optimistic market sector.
