Steve Shelley to head new modular solutions arm

Steve Shelley will head the Modular Solutions arm of Emerson Network Power, which is looking to drive adoption in APAC.

Shelley is a long term employee of Emerson with over 20 years at the company, that also included involvement in the National Broadband Network (NBN). The company says the new division is part of a move to strengthen market share in Asia-Pacific and a response to growing demand for such services.

“As businesses across the region race to meet the unprecedented demand for more data, improved performance, and faster, more consistent deployment, modular solutions have emerged as the clear answer to meet the deployment needs for critical infrastructure," said Emerson Network Power Asia Pacific group vice president, Stephen Liang.

“The newly-assembled business group aims to further refine our design and delivery capabilities and extend our lead in delivering these solutions for Emerson Network Power in the region,” he said.

Since the announcement of a $100 million contract for 10 network facility centres across Australia as part of the rollout of the NBN, Emerson has completed two other containerised datacentre projects for regional telcos.

“This type of project – be it in terms of solutions, geographical scope and strict turnaround time – can definitely be replicated by Emerson Network Power anywhere in the world, and across various verticals," Shelley said.

“Containerised solutions are not new to the market, and they are most certainly not exclusive for the use of telecom operators. But as more businesses keep pace with the rapid growth of data and service demand, containerised solutions will play a key role in ensuring market players are able to roll out projects that are optimised to run efficiently, designed for maximum scalability, and planned around minimal CAPEX."
