KEYMILE has opened its Asia Pacific regional hub in Singapore as part of its commitment to its customers and partners. The goal is to look after customers and partners better from this local base.

KEYMILE, a leading provider of solutions for mission-critical networks, is expanding its activities in the Asia Pacific region (APAC) with the new branch in Singapore, led by Dieter Klein as managing director for Asia. KEYMILE will focus on entering new markets and to provide superior support to customers as well as regional sales and service partners locally who were previously looked after from Europe. This will also make processing public and private tenders from the Asian region easier.

The market for mission-critical networks in Asia is growing rapidly. This growth requires increasing infrastructure, be it in the energy sector, at railway companies or in local government. With its existing product portfolio, in particular its XMC20 hybrid multi-service access and transmission platform, KEYMILE offers everything customers in the APAC region need to migrate from traditional to IP technologies.

This switch also creates strong demand for solutions, such as highly secure end-to-end encryption in mission-critical networks, another area KEYMILE specialises in. In addition, the new SECU1 security card offers exceptionally secure transmission of mission-critical data in MPLS-TP environments by using quantum physics.

KEYMILE Asia’s first steps will be to focus on sales, marketing and supporting existing partners. In the mid to long-term the branch will also concentrate on tapping into new markets in other Asian countries.

The expansion will allow KEYMILE to benefit from the market expertise of local representatives and therefore put it in a position to enhance its portfolio, which in turn will lead to better positioning with regard to international competitors.

"The new branch supports our strategy of intensifying our relationships with our existing and new customers and partners in Asia," says Dieter Klein, managing director, KEYMILE Asia. "Singapore is an ideal starting point to gain further established, innovative and familiar companies from the region as new sales and service partners and therefore actively boost our growth."
