“The digital disruption of enterprises continues as the user journey remains firmly at the forefront of business success.

We are pleased to partner with Tata Communications to address our growing need for higher levels of system and network availability, and cost-effective storage.”
The partnership comes on the heels of successful deployments of Skylab’s solutions in the region, notably for customer Sunseap’s solar farm projects across Southeast Asia. Frank Phuan, Co-founder and CEO, Sunseap Group, said: "Sunseap provides full spectrum clean energy solutions. We require an innovative approach to monitoring our solar systems performance and reliably reporting under energy regulations.
