Suretek managing director, Glenn Smith, said the deal will support the company in the delivery of new capabilities, an improved customer experience within the Asia-Pacific region and new market opportunities.

It has moved its Securedial/Securecall 1345 Service for alarm transmissions onto the Optus network, with further plans to transition these services to a full wireless model with Optus for greater manageability. The deal will also see Suretek's inbound voice, as well as fixed and wireless data services switched over to Optus from its current service provider.

"We chose to align Suretek with Optus Business in order to support our growth and expand our product offerings. It also 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," Smith said.

Optus Business managing director, John Paitaridis, mentioned the move to partner with Suretek will support the expansion of Optus Business' suite of mobility and security offerings in the future.

"Today's announcement signals the beginning of collaboration between the product development teams of Optus and Suretek, to explore new business opportunities through the co-development of new security solutions," he said.

According to Paitaridis, it also reinforces Optus' commitment to deliver security services.
