D-Link and TeamF1 Networks, a subsidiary of D-Link India which is focused on embedded networking and security software solutions for wired and wireless applications, announced their partnership in delivering myDlink Business, a cloud-based device management platform featuring ease, value, and scalability for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME).

The business cloud platform is specifically designed to suit the operation and workflow models of system integrators (“SI”), value-added resellers (VAR), and telcos/ISPs.

TeamF1 has developed and licensed its holistic network security software stack, TFOS™ (pronounced as “t-force”), for enterprise and SME leaders for the past fifteen years.

Today, with the advancement of networking technologies and the increase of network security threats, business owners increasingly depend on their trusted partners, e.g., managed service providers or telco/ISP, to set up and manage secured networks for them. Telcos/ISPs, for the sake of customers’ satisfaction and reducing operating expenditure, are looking up to experienced network security vendors for scalable solutions that are secure, rapid to deploy, and able to reduce their truck rolls.  “The D-Link multi-tenant, multi-purpose mydlink Business platform was purposely built to address these needs.  Its hierarchical multi-tenant architecture accommodates needs of different types of operators, e.g., telco/ISP, SI, VAR, or even store owners, and the multi-purpose service framework enables add-on services, ranging from business BYOD, secured remote access, hospitality, hotspot, to business intelligence.” said Dr. Ted Kuo, CEO and Chairman of TeamF1. “We are excited to be part of this joint project. Our engineering teams in Silicon Valley and Hyderabad have been working closely with D-Link wireless devices team and cloud solution DevOp team from concept development to early customers’ engagement.”

The first batch of managed devices that work with mydlink Business is the DBA-1000 series 802.11ac dual-band business access points (“AP”).These APs could be physically located on different premises but under the same administrator’s management. By leveraging virtually unlimited resources in the cloud, mydlink Business could serve millions of devices, store access logs, analyze and learn from collected data.

“mydlink Business and DBA-1000 APs are ideal solutions for telcos/ISPs to manage chain stores or satellite offices across large geographic regions.” said Mr. Tushar Sighat, CEO of D-Link India.

“Our new cloud-based solutions mydlink Business and DBA-1000 series provide simple and smart wireless network management that can help expand businesses and their networks.” said Mr. Douglas Hsiao, CEO and Vice Chairman, D-Link.

Mydlink Business and DBA-1210P are available for sampling in May 2017and scheduled to be generally available in the beginning of Q3, 2017.
