Regional – February 18, 2011 – Virtual Netcomm (S) Pte Ltd (“VNPL”), the premier value-added enterprise technology distributor in Asia today announced its appointment as the regional distributor of Packet Design. Under the agreement, VNPL will market and distribute the full range of network analysis products and solutions via its extensive channel network and innovative marketing programs in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

With the distributorship, VNPL is strengthening its product portfolio to help enterprises in the ASEAN region to address network management issues as edge and core networks in these enterprises grow in size and complexity. Packet Design offers a unique suite of IP routing and traffic analysis products that complement traditional network management tools and empower network managers to spot problems and potential failures in real-time, speed troubleshooting, and perform more accurate planning. For service providers, they will be able to optimize transit, perform capacity planning, plan and route traffic changes, and to resolve complex network issues faster. The real-time network and traffic visibility enables service providers to proactively detect emerging problems before they erupt into privacy breaches or service disruptions, thereby ensuring a high level of service assurance to their customers.

“Visibility into the dynamically changing behavior of IP networks is critical to effectively managing a growing IT infrastructure; the growth of increasingly complex IP networks in our region is an opportunity for Packet Design's IP route analytics technology and solutions. Their in-depth network analysis allows administrators to accurately detect network issues that go unseen by traditional SNMP management tools, quickly find their root causes, efficiently plan network capacity and ensure high network availability and performance,” said Sam Chng, Executive Director, for South East Asia operations, VNPL.

“Packet Design is the leading provider of IP routing and traffic flow management intelligence, having won several prominent industry awards such as the Red Herring Top 100 Award. Packet Design’s products such as the Traffic Explorer and Route Explorer have already been adopted into the solution portfolios of prominent network infrastructure players such as CA, HP and Juniper Networks. We are confident that Packet Design will be well received in the market through our aggressive marketing and distribution roadmap,” added Chng.

"The ASEAN market is a key part of Packet Design's overall strategy of growth and expansion in Asia", said Steve Ackley, Vice-President of World-Wide Sales for Packet Design. "Due to their strong sales and support presence, and their understanding of network management solutions, VNPL is a natural fit to help Packet Design take its business to the next level in the region."
