Networking expansion for Packet Technologies

Packet Technologies has added to its stable of networking agencies with the adoption of software from FileCatalyst and Network Instruments.

The additions are part of a revision and consolidation process that has taken place since the formation of the new distributor, which resulted from the merger of Auckland’s Packet Engines and Crawford Technologies.

Co-director Frank Ollie says the company wanted to build on the success Crawford Technologies had previously experienced with Exinda Networks in WAN acceleration.

“A lot of people say they want to do something similar to Exinda on a LAN,” Ollie says. As such, Packet Technologies has taken on Network Instruments’ Observer network management software.

FileCatalyst provides an alternative file transfer optimisation option to FTP.

The distributor has also added the eSafe content security range from Aladdin. It was already offering Aladdin’s eToken for authentication and password management.

Ollie adds that a number of smaller products offered by Packet Engines and Crawford Technologies weren’t retained in the merger process.

“We tried to evolve from a vendor focus to a technology focus. We found we only had one product in some areas. We found some holes and said let’s fill that from a technology point of view.”

Packet Technologies has significantly grown its revenue in the four months since the merger, Ollie says.
