(April 2023) Announced this week, ActivePort Software has secured a notable 10-year deal with existing customer Lightstorm as they ramp up the next phase of growth and expansion globally. 

This multimillion-dollar agreement to deliver software-defined networking and cloud orchestration, solidifies the strategic alignment and future evolution of both companies.

Lightstorm is the digital network infrastructure arm of US private equity company I Squared Capital and specialises in building infrastructure for hyperscale networking in Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

With ActivePort’s multi-vendor orchestration solution as a core component, Lightstorm built a network-as-a-service (NaaS) platform called Polarin. This platform allows enterprises to easily manage their network infrastructure and securely deploy a high-availability network in minutes with guaranteed 100% uptime.

ActivePort CEO and MD, Karim Nejaim: ‘We are honoured that Lightstorm have put their trust in our software as a core part of their business and extended our contract both in scope and time. It is almost one year to the day that we began our strategic partnership. During this time, Lightstorm have built a cloud based NaaS platform with ActivePort’s Orchestration solution and end-to-end workflow automation functionality. We look forward to this long-term partnership as we continue to work with Lightstorm to build products and services and be a key part of their success from the Middle East, through India and into Southeast Asia.’
