Home Industry Deals AAPT selects OrionVM to deliver cloud solution

Wholesale telecommunications carrier, AAPT, has selected OrionVM’s cloud platform to power its Connect service offering.

Under the deal, OrionVM has delivered and implemented the wholesale cloud solution now powering AAPT’s Connect service,  with AAPT CEO, David Yuile, saying the company has “invested and committed heavily in shifting its focus to servicing the demanding and increasingly sophisticated needs of the wholesale and business markets.”

“AAPT’s telecommunications pedigree is based on extreme performance networking. We have invested heavily in our own network infrastructure and we partner with the best-of-breed system integrators and suppliers to ensure we have the highest-grade solutions available.”

Commenting on the deal, OrionVM Managing Director, Sheng Yeo, said AAPT’s cloud strategy has been “central to the competitive offering it brings to Australia’s wholesale and business sectors and OrionVM has been proud to be able to play a role in articulating that solution.”

Yeo said AAPT was the first major wholesale customer for OrionVM and the partnership with APPT marked the official launch of the company’s wholesale and reseller strategy.

“This empowers service providers to deliver cloud solutions to their customers without the hurdle of capital expenditure outlays. It also promises rapid time to market with a world-leading cloud solution and premium support.

“OrionVM has a highly-specialised area of expertise in cloud and applications management which sits very comfortably with our networks and IP solutions. The competitive businesses of today are seeking high-performance, robust and reliable applications and services. They are largely agnostic about the technology involved but they demand the highest-quality service and network performance. Together, AAPT and OrionVM bring that to the table without the complexities that can hinder results,” Yeo concluded.

According to Yuile, “the entrepreneurial culture of OrionVM allowed the delivery and integration of our cloud platform within nine months rather than a drawn-out process. With AAPT’s extensive resources, coupled with OrionVM’s cloud solution and engineering resources, we are confident this alliance will deliver great value to Connect.com.au customers.”
