MTech started in 2001 to create, aggregate, and deliver mobile content to both mobile users and marketers across African network carriers. Carriers require direct connections, yet the cloud’s ephemeral VPN addressing does not work with direct connections.
MTech began by moving their servers to Amazon AWS, but realized they could not direct connect to AWS VPNs. Rather than adding hops to the network, MTech added VNS3 as a virtual router and firewall between AWS servers and partners’ gateways.
Adding VNS3 virtual networking allows MTech to connect directly to their telecom partners’ infrastructure. Since working with VNS3, MTech has more than doubled revenues, saved nearly 40% on infrastructure costs, added customers, and expanded partner relationships throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
