GREEN PACKET HAS 75% OF TAIWAN'S WiMAX
March 23, 2010
Kuala Lumpur - Greenpacket, a leading developer of next generation
mobile broadband and networking solutions, inked a deal with Taiwan's
WiMAX Operator, Global Mobile Corp ("Global Mobile") to provide its
Intouch Connection Management solution (Intouch CM). This deal signifies
the third partnership between Greenpacket and WiMAX Operators in Taiwan
- gaining the Company 75% of Taiwan's WiMAX marketshare.
|According to Senior General Manager of
Greenpacket, Kelvin Lee, being strong in Taiwan helps fortifies the
Company's leading position in the Asia Pacific (APAC) market. Taiwan is
a major WiMAX hub in the APAC with vigorous WiMAX deployments, and where
two of the world's six WiMAX Forum® certification labs are situated.
Lee said, "Greenpacket is currently No.1 in the APAC for the sales of
our Connection Manager. We've set our sight to be the world's No.1
vendor by end 2010. We believe that the APAC, with its high growth
prospect, will be our springboard."
The mobile broadband industry is rapidly developing in the APAC region
with hugely populated countries such as China and India implementing
mandates to boost broadband penetration. India mandates to have 20
million broadband users by 2010 and approximately 600,000 villages
connected via broadband. Frost & Sullivan projects the number of WiMAX
subscribers in the APAC to reach 24 million by 2014, with estimated
revenues of up to USD6.4 billion as the region continues to lead the
world in WiMAX innovation.
"The software demand for both 3G and 4G technology will increase in
tandem with the anticipated high mobile broadband growth of these
markets. Our Intouch CM solution is fast gaining popularity amongst 4G
WiMAX and 3G Operators because it is a high performance product that
delivers the desired results. We understand that today's end-consumers
expect more - on top of an improved connectivity experience, they highly
value products that complement and enrich their advanced lifestyles. The
Intouch CM packs in the punch to help Operators fulfil today's advanced
lifestyle needs," said Lee.
Global Mobile needed to manage connectivity across multiple Operating
Systems. Greenpacket's Intouch CM unifies Global Mobile's existing
dongles making it easier for the Operator to introduce new dongle models
in the future. Implementing the Intouch CM helps Global Mobile to enrich
its customer's connectivity experience and support better Average
Revenue per User gains. Over the longer run, the solution is expected to
help bring down operating costs by reducing customer support costs.
"We strive to constantly be at the forefront of customer needs, and are
committed to delivering innovative and high quality products. Our
leading position is proof of this commitment," said Lee.
In 2010, Greenpacket aims to increase its market share in regions
outside of APAC where it already has strong traction including the USA,
Central and Latin America, and Europe. The company has doubled its sales
force in these markets to be closer to its customers, better understand
their needs and to strengthen business relationships.
