Swedish green ICT infrastructure maker Flexenclosure has expanded its office in Myanmar, claiming rapid deployment of its eSite hybrid power system for off-grid sites and sites with unreliable grid supplies.
The eSites are part of Flexenclosure’s contribution to the government’s transformation of Myanmar’s infrastructure.
According to the firm, the Myanmar government has set a mobile phone penetration target of 75-80% by March 2016, up from only 10% in 2013. Flexenclosure has already deployed over 1,000 eSites in Myanmar and this number will rise in the coming months as the rollout continues.
”Myanmar is the last frontier in the Asia Pacific region for new mobile network and IT infrastructure deployment,” said Flexenclosure CEO David King. ”We consider Myanmar to be of key strategic importance and are expanding our operations there into a hub not only for our in-country projects but as a platform for our broader expansion across Asia Pacific.”
eSite is a hybrid power system for off-grid and bad-grid cell sites delivering 100% network uptime and diesel-related cost savings of up to 90%, Flexenclosure said. eManager, an all-in-one toolbox for site power infrastructure management, including remote monitoring, power optimisation, KPI reporting, and site logistics, is an integral part of the product.
At the same time, Flexenclosure also announced the opening of a new office in Mexico to target the Latin American region. In addition to eSite, the new Mexico City office will promote the company’s eCentre prefabricated datacentre solution.
“There is significant growing demand for prefabricated data centres across Latin America, driven by an exponential increase in colocation and cloud service providers as well as the specific needs of regional and multinational companies,” said King. “Having already established a strong presence in Africa and Asia, we see Latin America as the obvious next step in our continued global expansion with our eCentre data centre product.”
