CSL puts its head in the cloud

4 Dec 2009

Hong Kong-based cellco CSL, a subsidiary of Australia’s Telstra, has signed a deal with SIMtone for the implementation and development of the latter’s ‘cloud’ computing services over CSL’s ’Next G’ 3.5G wireless network in Hong Kong. According to a press release, SIMtone’s Universal Computing Platform is a ‘plug-and-play’, secure and ‘massively scalable’ intelligent-network computing solution that allows operators and content providers to provision, aggregate and deliver all types of applications and services hosted in any public or private ‘cloud’ to a broad array of existing and new-to-market devices, from PCs to handsets as well as upcoming low-cost ‘third screen’ devices. Under the agreement, CSL will use SIMtone-based solutions to deliver cloud applications and resell private-cloud SIMtone products to businesses and consumers.
