Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimisation and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, and Wick Hill Group value added reseller (VAR) KJAER DATA, provider of IT infrastructure solutions, have partnered together to sell their first Allot NetEnforcer installation to Swire Blue Ocean, an offshore wind farm installation company.
Allot and KJAER DATA implemented the NetEnforcer solution to remedy lagging network response time on Swire Blue Ocean’s two seagoing vessels, which use satellite technology for their Internet connections. NetEnforcer provides the granular visibility and policy enforcement needed to optimise the delivery, performance and profitability of Swire Blue Ocean’s Internet services. Allot NetEnforcer delivers highly detailed bandwidth utilisation reports to ensure full transparency of end-user behavior and the stability of external data connections over the available bandwidth.
“Vessel-based Internet networks, like Swire Blue Ocean’s, are unique in that they are routed through a satellite telemetry system, instead of a hard wired fiber-optic network. This creates considerable latency and thereby quickly consumes all available data sessions. End-users on the vessels are accessing these networks in the same way they would on land, which crippled their networks,” said Richard Holben, regional VP of sales, Northern Europe, at Allot Communications. “We are happy to once again partner with a leading company in Denmark - KJAER DATA - to provide a solution that upholds the network integrity aboard the Swire Blue Ocean vessels.”
Over the past two years, KJAER DATA has conducted all of Swire Blue Ocean’s IT projects in Copenhagen and aboard both of their vessels, the Pacific Orca and Pacific Osprey. KJAER DATA and Allot will continue to partner on IT solutions related to their offshore business segment.
“We at KJAER DATA are proud to expand our network consultancy services by partnering with Allot Communications. Through this collaboration, we can offer our customers full visibility in identifying and leveraging the business intelligence in data networks. This is an important step and yet another building block in strengthening our provision of broad range network solutions. We look forward to implementing these innovative solutions in Denmark and abroad,” said Jens Peter Høgh, COO at KJAER DATA.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman of VAD Wick Hill Group, commented: “By deploying Allot NetEnforcer, KJAER DATA has done an excellent job of resolving the endemic performance issues created with Internet access over satellite.”
