US-based WAN acceleration vendor, Orbital Data, is building a presence in the Australian market to help support its local channel.
Newly appointed regional manager for Asia-Pacific, Ken Gong, said he hoped to set up an office in Sydney or Melbourne next month. He was currently looking to recruit sales and technical staff as well as a territorial manager.
"This team will help us to work closely with our distributor TechPlus and its partners," he said. "Together we will provide all sorts of great opportunities to embrace new markets, solutions and technologies."
Orbital is looking to recruit integrators, VARs, service providers and OEMs with a strong presence in the enterprise and government markets. Partners will be offered technical and sales training, 24x7 support, qualified leads and a Web portal.
Gong said trade shows and seminars would also be organised to help educate resellers.
