U.S.-based technology security firm Arbor Networks is opening a regional development center in Beijing to develop Chinese-specific application protocol classifications for Chinese peer-to-peer and file sharing services such as PPLive, Xunlei and QQ.
These protocol classifications will enable service providers to better understand and more efficiently manage traffic on their networks.
Dr. Rob Malan, chief technology officer and co-founder of Arbor Networks, stated: "We understand the challenges Asia's wireline and wireless network operators are facing in terms of subscriber management, network security, service creation and the rapidly changing nature of the traffic running over their networks. This Regional Development Center demonstrates our commitment to the region and our ability to deliver relevant, customized solutions that ensure the security, availability and profitability of Asia's service provider networks."
Arbor Networks' other office locations in the Asia-Pacific region include Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul and Sydney.
