Kontron expands to meet the needs of Southeast Asian telecom customers
Taipei, Taiwan, June 19th, 2009 - Kontron, a world leading manufacturer and supplier of Embedded Computer Technology (ECT), announced today the expansion of its sales partner network in Southeast Asia with the addition of Tecnomic Systems Pte ltd, based in Singapore. With immediate effect, Tecnomic will serve Kontron's customers in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam.
Local Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs), solution providers and system integrators will benefit from Kontron's broad product portfolio and Tecnomic's extensive knowledge and experience with solutions based on CompactPCI®, AdvancedTCA® and Communications Rackmount Servers (CRMS). This cooperation provides the ideal combination for telecom applications, such as SS7, VOIP, TDM, 3G (HMP) as well as professional services for telecom network and platform system integration services for CompactPCI® and AdvancedTCA®. Currently, Tecnomic is a sales partner of Intel® and is therefore very experienced in selling and supporting Server Boards, Communication Rackmount Servers as well as MicroTCA™ and AdvancedTCA® products into the telecom market.
“We are very pleased to add Tecnomic to our sales partner network”, says Christine Huang, Regional Sales Manager for Southeast Asia, “Kontron and Tecnomic complement each other very well, with Kontron delivering proven platform technologies and Tecnomic providing application expertise, technical support as well as local market knowledge.”
“The Southeastern Asian market is an excellent match for Kontron in terms of technology and mentality,” adds Tom Meyer, Vice President for Kontron in APAC, “Kontron offers the widest range of leading edge, high quality embedded computer products which meet the expectations of our customers in Asia. Furthermore, Kontron as a company which is headquartered in Germany shares many values such as stability, dependability and last, but not least, mutual trust. Once more we are pursuing our 'Think global and act local' philosophy in order to improve services for our customers. Our products are not simply sold 'over the counter'. They require a significant amount of support during the design-in, and also afterwards, during the production phase in terms of flexible logistics, quality assurance and longevity support. Tecnomic has a proven track record in the field of telecom applications and an excellent reputation in the market as a reliable partner. So they fit very well into the Kontron network.”
“We are very pleased with Kontron's decision” says Tanmoy Das, CEO of Tecnomic in SE Asia, “particularly since it once again confirms that stability and dependability combined with solid technical expertise are valuable assets for global suppliers such as Kontron. Tecnomic is bringing a strong complementary ecosystem to Kontron, including software development and design services and professional services for installation and implementation.”
