Kontron, Astute Team
This agreement continues the strong partnership the two companies began in 2007 with the signing of a strategic technology agreement that led to the development of the first fully integrated AdvancedTCA® bladed server-storage solution that provided Network Equipment Providers (NEPs) a proven edge-level content delivery solution. The reseller agreement announced today enables telecom, military and video surveillance equipment manufacturers to have a reliable source worldwide for a fully tested and supported integrated open platform that offers the high-performance required for IPTV, VoD and other media-rich content delivery system applications.
“The partnership between Astute Networks and Kontron has grown to be extremely synergistic and productive allowing the two companies to offer customers a cost-effective, optimized and fully integrated solution,” said Clark Masters, president and chief executive officer at Astute Networks. “The configuration of the Kontron AT8030 AdvancedTCA® server node with the Caspian R1100 Edge Storage Blade offers a unique value proposition that provides companies a competitive time-to-market advantage while lowering the acquisition and operational lifecycle costs. In my view, this is a significant benefit for telecom, media, and military customers worldwide.”
