Knosys beats competition to win $6m Singtel Optus deal Featured

By

Australian-listed knowledge management software provider Knosys has won its biggest single contract with a $6.1 million agreement with Singapore telco Singtel and its Australian subsidiary Singtel Optus to deploy its knowledge management platform, KnowledgeIQ.

The multi-year contract has been secured by Knosys (ASX:KNO) following a competitive tender process commenced by Singtel in June 2017.

The contract will span five years and three years respectively for Singtel and Optus, and Knosys will commence project activities immediately with a “Go-Live” date for both Singtel and Optus scheduled for the first half of 2018.

Knosys chief executive John Thompson said the win represented the largest single contract for Knosys, expanding its footprint into the telecommunications sector and firmly within Singapore.

“Knosys was able to achieve this win against immense local and international competition in Singapore. This will be a significant reference site for the company in the critical Singapore and wider South East Asian market and Knosys will look to continue to expand its information and knowledge management business there.

“This contract illustrates the value we can add to many customers and the superiority of our market leading KnowledgeIQ technology. We can enable our customers to drive extra revenue, save them time and expense, and allow them to make more informed decisions.”

Thompson said, “The Singtel/Optus implementation fits nicely with our 2017 strategy to focus on three verticals in the Australian and Singapore markets, namely government/legal, telco and finance/banking. We continue to explore and prospect hard in these markets for similar and mid-sized opportunities to grow revenue and expand our user base numbers.

“We are on target to achieve our double-digit user growth target for FY18 which I know our investors have been patiently waiting for. This is a fantastic step in our ambition to build Knosys into a premier software vendor of cognitive information, knowledge and analytic solutions globally.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
