)-- Acceleration Systems, an emerging cloud-based bandwidth optimization and acceleration service company, today announced a new partnership with iNext Telecom. This new agreement allows iNext Telecom to resell Acceleration Systems’ new bandwidth optimization solutions in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa.
“iNext Telecom’s market analysis shows a strong demand for a software-as-a-service bandwidth optimization solution as opposed to the traditional high capital expenditure approach used by competitors,” said Mike Kister, President and CEO of Acceleration Systems. “iNext Telecom is ideally situated to deliver our bandwidth optimization to vastly underserved key sectors including government, business, and educational institutions. We are pleased to form this strategic partnership and looking forward to working with iNext Telecom.”
iNext Telecom’s initial focus will be on Zimbabwe, Zambia, and South Africa, later expanding into Kenya and Nigeria. Based on the parent company’s history of introducing new and disruptive technologies to emerging markets, iNext Telecom is well positioned to take Acceleration Systems’ WAN optimization solutions to the region based on their geographical focus, established network of local offices, and their global platform.
Clever Chinoda, Vice President of Strategy, iNext Telecom commented "It has been an amazing experience to work with Acceleration Systems. The technology is amazingly incredible and we would recommend it to any Internet user. The data offloads savings are huge in comparison to the investment and is a must for any business. Thanks to the Acceleration Systems for such a life changing invention."
Together Acceleration Systems and iNext Telecom will solve last mile connectivity issues throughout the Sub-Saharan region for a fraction of the cost of other competitive products. Deploying next-generation optimization and acceleration services on existing connections will allow African businesses to compete in the global market.
