Cloud service provider Pareteum has expanded into the region with the opening of a Singapore office at Hong Lim Complex, alongside the appointment of Manjot Mann as CEO of Asia.
Pareteum delivers a range of mobile enablement solutions through its software-defined cloud platform, partnering with vendors such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Ribbon Communications, NetNumber, Oracle and Microsoft.
Leading the cloud provider’s regional operations will be Mann, who previously served as CEO of Lebara Limited in London for four years.
Not new to Asia, he has also served eight years as CEO of Hutchison Telecommunications based out of Jakarta, Indonesia, with prior experience working in India.
“I am very excited to be a part of Pareteum that is helping build a linked future by connecting consumers and devices across geographies with the development of path-breaking products and solutions through global software defined cloud that promotes open mobility,” said Mann.
"Asia presents a huge opportunity in that respect with cutting-edge technology advancements in mobile telecommunications, IoT, smart cities and other digital verticals through multiple access devices.
"With our presence in Singapore, we will now be within arms-length of providing these services to customers across various cross section of business needs."
The move to Asia comes at an opportune time for the provider with customers from the region seeing significant growth for the company over the past two years.
The provider also sees significant opportunities in other regional markets such as Australia and New Zealand which has led to the decision to have a direct in-market presence to tackle this increased demand.
“In opening this key Singapore office location, Pareteum will now directly serve the markets of Asia, Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Africa,” said Hal Turner, executive chairman and principal executive officer, Pareteum.
"Our commitment to fuel open mobility and open applications networks now finds new paths to carriers, enterprises and developers via our global software defined cloud."
The provider’s global software defined cloud and ‘Super API’ software has increasingly targeted new and growing sectors from IoT, data analytics to smart cities, and application-developer markets - each in need of enablement solutions for mobility platforms, services management and global connectivity.
