Optus partners with Suretek for 4G security

Companies to collaborate on future security products

Optus has inked a $60 million contract with security and surveillance provider Suretek for fixed network and 3G and 4G mobile services.

Suretek sells wireless alarm communications and remote video monitoring services in the Asia Pacific. Under the five-year deal, Suretek will move its Securedial/Securecall 1345 service for alarm transmissions onto the Optus network and transition the services to a fully wireless model. Also, Suretek will move its inbound voice, fixed and wireless data services to Optus.

In addition, Optus plans to tap the partnership to expand its range of security products. Optus said the announcement signals “the beginning of a collaboration between the product development teams of Optus and Suretek.”

Suretek managing director, Glenn Smith, said in a statement that the move to Optus 4G will help it advance its electronic security services “into the IP era.”

SingTel Optus’s presence locally in Australia and across the Asia Pacific was key in securing the long-term partnership, the companies said.

“Today’s announcement reinforces our strategy to increase Suretek’s exposure to new markets, opening up possibilities for our customers, resellers and partners now and in the future,” said Smith.
