Sales director appointed
Wireless networking expert Ross Chiswell has become sales director for Colubris Networks to lead a major push into the Australian enterprise networking market.
Chiswell takes the reins for Colubris in Australia after selling his own company, Integrity Data Systems, to TR Corporation in 2005.
"Colubris is not well known in Australia, but it has an excellent reputation in the carrier, hotspot service provider and hospitality markets in America, Europe and Japan," said Chiswell.
"I knew the company and the quality of its products from running Integrity Data Systems. Personally, after nine years supporting many brands through Integrity, I wanted an opportunity to focus on a single brand. Colubris is committed to extending its carrier experience into new markets, so it's a great challenge to take this Wi-Fi technology brand into the Australian enterprise sector."
With a worldwide installed base of more than 1500 customers and 40 million users, Colubris products have been deployed by some of the most demanding organisations in the world.
Colubris has also announced the intelligent enterprise-class 802.11n access point, which is part of the 802.11n-ready Colubris Intelligent Mobility Solution.
Chiswell said the company was well positioned for the next step in wireless technology.
"Now the n standard is becoming real, our ability to handle the increase in bandwidth without having to forklift out the hardware they are deploying sets Colubris apart," Chiswell said.
"As well as the enterprise sector, I see a great opportunity for Colubris in Australia in the education market, which has generally used residential-grade wireless technology. This has caused a lot of pain through unreliability and incurred a lot of support costs. With Colubris, education can move from amateur hour to prime time, improving performance, lowering support costs combined with carrier grade access control."
"In health care, our fast voice roaming, multi-service delivery, along with the ability to manage legacy equipment, means we can support next generation Wi-Fi handsets that offer voice, paging, duress, man down and location tracking; to this we can also add public or guest access with our easy-to-use visitor management tool."
