GITN Picks Exinda

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Exinda Networks today announced a contract award from Government Integrated Telecom Network (GITN) worth more than RM3.8 million (USD 1.1 Million). The contract award, which is the largest ever for Exinda, is part of the Malaysian governments bandwidth management project that involves deploying Exinda wide area network (WAN) optimization appliances at more than 700 networked government sites over the next two years. GITN is pursuing the bandwidth management project to provide quick, efficient and reliable services to its citizens.

Exinda Networks’ WAN optimization appliances will ensure that network applications are responding quickly to end user requests. The appliances classify, prioritize and compress network traffic while controlling non-essential traffic such as recreational Web applications. WAN optimization will help GITN reduce network operating costs by maximizing its network investment.

GITN selected Exinda Networks as its WAN optimization vendor because Exinda’s products are easy to use and provide effective network traffic management at an affordable price.

GITN is the official network service provider for the Malaysian government. It manages the network that supports the government and its rapidly growing economy. Ariantec is an Exinda product distributor working with reseller Niagara Technologies on GITN’s bandwidth management initiative.

“GITN’s bandwidth management project is one of the industry’s largest WAN optimization deployments,” said Con Nikolouzakis, chief executive office of Exinda Networks.
