Chiaro Signs Korean Resellers
|RICHARDSON, Texas -- Chiaro Networks, the developer of true infrastructure-class IP/MPLS platforms, today announced that it has signed value-added reseller (VAR) agreements with Delta Info-Comm and Jung Myung Communication & Technology (JMC&T), two leading resellers of telecommunications equipment to South Korean carriers such as Korea Telecommunications (KT), Hanaro, DACOM and Powercom. Terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
"The proven ultra reliability and scalability of Chiaro's Enstara IP/MPLS platform provides a competitive advantage for carriers in the fast-growing South Korean telecommunications market," said Mr. Chang Wha Jung, CEO of Delta Info-Comm. "In addition, because the Enstara IP/MPLS platform can support an order of magnitude greater number of peers and routes than are currently found on the Internet, it offers product longevity greater than any other core router on the market today. We expect Chiaro's IP/MPLS platform to be an important part of Korea's next-generation telecommunications network."
"The business climate in South Korean telecommunications is ideal for the advantages that Chiaro offers," said Mr. Hee Kyung Kang, CEO of JMC&T. "With pressure among carriers to reduce expenses to the minimum, and to invest only where necessary for network upgrades, the Enstara platform's combination of ultra reliability -- which helps reduce costs associated with downtime -- extended product lifetime, high performance and flexibility, promises to be highly successful in Korea."
"These agreements with two of Korea's top telecommunications VARs provide further validation of Chiaro's potential in Asia," said Ken Lewis, president and CEO of Chiaro Networks. "South Korea is among the leaders worldwide in the development of next-generation networks as they evolve to support real-time services, and reliability is crucial to the success of these networks. We look forward to our relationships with these important resellers being highly successful for Chiaro, Delta Info-Comm, JMC&T and the entire Korean telecommunications market."
