Aten looks to the future
ASIA: Taiwanese IT connectivity and management solutions manufacturer Aten is targeting the IoT (Internet of Things) and smart city markets across the ASEAN and South Asia regions. This comes as a response to several government initiatives in relation to these fields throughout the regions and has led to the creation of the Aten Solution Day (ASD) conference series.
‘Aten has built a strong sales base in the ASEAN and South Asian markets through our local distribution partners in all the major cities, which serves as an indicator of our overall growth momentum,’ said Kevin Chen, president of Aten International. ‘To sustain that growth as well as expand our brand presence and market share, we’ve now set our sights on smart cities with the goal of selling our solutions to a more diverse range of vertical markets.’
The first ASD conferences were held in Indonesia and Singapore under the title of Powering Smart Cities with IoT Solutions. With more than 150 systems integrators, service providers and end users in attendance at each, the events were used to build an awareness of IoT and the opportunities it presents. Further editions are planned for India, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines.
