WiSPGulf and ITQAN join forces
The two companies team up to deliver Falcon Network Composer.
Dubai-based infrastructure solutions specialist, WiSPGulf, has announced the outsourcing of the production and distribution of Falcon Network Composer to Abu Dhabi-based systems integrator, ITQAN Al Bawardi Computers.
WiSPGulf recently secured the exclusive rights for the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific to bring the US-based Cymphonix solution to its customers. The Cymphonix solution was re-branded Falcon Network Composer to align itself with the more locally orientated identity and to allow for future Arabic versions.
WiSPGulf recognised a gap in the market for more cost effective monitoring and management of internet and intranet bandwidth activities. The Falcon solution offers a user-friendly installation procedure that can be implemented within a day. “We have recognised that providing a practical and cost effective solution to address a challenging issue such as bandwidth usage and monitoring will create a huge demand for this product,” says Garreth Scott, general manager of WiSPGulf.
In gearing up for the expected demand, WiSPGulf is aware that large volumes are going to be required and hence saw the opportunity of being able to produce the units locally and have available stocks through ITQAN Al Bawardi Computers. “By producing [the solution] locally we are in control of the complete supply chain management of the solution. This positions us well above our competitors when it comes to delivering innovative and cost effective solutions on time,” says Dean Polley, general manager of ITQAN Al Bawardi Computers.
Falcon Network Composer is a network monitoring appliance which allows customers to maintain control of bandwidth usage and can also prevent conflict between core business applications thereby promoting network productivity. “Managing the existing bandwidth increases productivity thereby also increasing and ensuring a faster return on investment,” says Scott.
The product offers multiple benefits to users including spyware identification, real-time web filtering, control over peer-to-peer network traffic, bandwidth optimisation and the ability to log and archive all instant messages sent over the network. The information gathered allows users to prioritise, shape, limit or block internet and network traffic to ensure peak efficiency. Mission-critical applications can also be given the highest priority and availability. "The idea is not to act as watchdog over employees. The main role of Network Composer is to rather identify problem areas and manage these in a productive and constructive way, while maintaining quality of service within an organisation’s network,” adds Scott.
