FNT Software, Idea Device Technologies in Collaborative Agreement for Asia

Both parties will focus on data centres and telecommunications companies in Southeast Asia in the initial phase. Collaborative effort will cover primarily technology integration.

FNT Solutions Pte. Ltd, a unit of FNT GmbH (www.fntsoftware.com) and part of the one of the largest German independent software companies, has tied up with virtualisation and application-level automation software company Idea Device to collaborate across Asia.

Through this technology agreement, FNT Solutions will bring its cutting edge data centre infrastructure management and data centre service management capabilities to this alliance. On its part, Idea Device (www.ideadevice.com) will inject its core strength of innovative carrier grade-software solutions which primarily automate IT data centre operations.

Both companies plan to jointly develop customised solutions for data centres and telecommunications companies initially in Southeast Asia, and subsequently extending the collaborative efforts into other parts of Asia.

Joseph Lim, Vice President for Asia Pacific, FNT Solutions, said: “FNT and Idea Device have been working in partnership for some time. It is time for us to elevate this relationship to a more strategic level and deliver deeper and tighter integration of our respective software. This tie-up is a significant strategic collaboration to deliver cutting edge fully customizable SDN/NFV orchestration solutions, for data centres and telecommunication service providers, as well as other enterprises."

The joint solution will enable service providers to significantly reduce service provisioning time through automating the process of providing computing and other functions across their networks. It will provide a transparent view of the entire infrastructure available behind these services to manage and optimise network resource utilization, hence maximising profits through the efficient deployment of these assets.

Idea Device General Manager Abdul Bijur, said: “FNT Software is built on the same principles that Epsilon was built on - scalability, reliability, performance and openness. This makes FNT a reliable partner that we can depend on as an integral part of the solution offerings we provide. Epsilon's automation capabilities along with FNT's inventory and data layer capabilities will provide immense value to our customers.”

Headquartered in Ellwangen in Germany, FNT is the only provider that offers solutions that cover the entire IT value chain, including network and IT infrastructure, data center management, and application and business service management. Like our customers, we take an integrative approach from cabling through to service provision.
