ASM Technologies has announced a follow on investment in Lavelle Networks, the Bengaluru-based leader in SD-WAN Technology in India. In this latest investment round, besides ASM Technologies, telecommunications giant Bharati Airtel has also invested in Lavelle for the first time. Earlier this month, Lavelle Networks had been named in the latest batch of the Google for Startups Accelerator (GFSA) India program which helps high potential Indian Technology startups to build and scale in its initial years.
Rabindra Srikantan, Managing Director, ASM Technologies Ltd. said, “Lavelle Networks has been a wonderful partner of ASM for a long time now and this latest investment only reflects the continued confidence that we have in this partnership as we continue to drive immense value to our customers. It is also heartening to see a giant like Bharati Airtel invest into the Lavelle Networks story. We wish the new partnership all the very best.”
Also sharing his views was Karthik Madhava, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Lavelle Networks, who said, “ ASM has been a pillar of support and a valued partner for us for some time now and we are very happy that they continue to impose their faith in Lavelle Networks. It is indeed also highly encouraging when a company like Bharati Airtel chooses to partner with you. We look forward to a mutually fulfilling relationship and to continue to deliver value to our partners with our new age and innovative technology solutions.”
ASM Technologies has been a partner of Lavelle Networks since its initial years and last year even set up a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for software-defined networking, jointly in Bengaluru.
