System integrator’s adoption of Uplogix automated remote management technology marks inaugural sale for recently-opened Mexico sales office

Austin, Texas (September 9, 2010) – Uplogix, the leading provider of remote network management automation, announced that Tec-Nor, a data and communications systems integrator headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, has deployed Uplogix appliances in VSAT applications for the oil & gas industry.
Tec-Nor is using Uplogix at both land-based sites using VSAT communications, as well as offshore energy platforms for persistent connectivity and automated management and recovery of hybrid infrastructure. By deploying locally and connecting directly to satellite, SCADA and traditional networking gear, Uplogix’ intelligent appliances are able to manage devices without relying on the network and can take proactive and corrective actions. 
“Uplogix will help lower our support costs of remote networks,” said Santiago Zubiria, CEO of Tec-Nor. “The combination of automation with a reliable Iridium out-of-band connection at remote sites will enable us to improve network uptime and deliver better service for our VSAT customers.”
The partnership is the first for the Mexico sales office of Uplogix. Regional Manager for Mexico, Pablo Aramburu said, “With so many opportunities for Automated Remote Management in the IT infrastructure of Mexico’s expanding Energy, Banking and Retail markets, we’re excited to begin operations locally.” The office is located in Monterrey and can be reached at +52 81 8306 0220.
