  • Silvus Names Amber Technology 2021 International Defence Distributor of the Year
Silvus Technologies is honored to work with many of the finest partners, distributors, and end users across the globe. This year, we are proud to recognize Amber Technology as our 2021 International Defense Distributor of the Year.

Amber Technology, an early proponent of tactical mesh networks, became Silvus’ first international reseller when they selected our products for all MANET efforts in 2014 after extensive comparative testing. They then landed our largest deal to date at that time – a multi-million-dollar multi-phase national deployment of radios, support, and training programs for Australian Police Forces.

Thanks to Amber, now Silvus’ Master Distributor in Australia and New Zealand, Silvus radios are deployed across entire cities, delivering network capability for emergency services in rugged and demanding environments and working effectively even in the face of total denial of service. Amber has now delivered Silvus’ superior technology to every branch of the Australian Defense Forces - Army, Navy and Air Force. Amber customers have been granted multiple Defense Innovation awards in Defense Research and Development and Unmanned and Autonomous Vehicle applications.

In addition to their Police and Defense presence, Amber engages with a wide range of both civil and emergency service end users. Amber has overseen deployments of Silvus’ link systems on helicopters for aerial firefighting and surveillance, backup communications resources for State Emergency Services, and broadcast infrastructure for racing cars.

Recently, additional staff were added to the Amber team in West Australia to address an increased interest from the mining and resources sectors and to provide local sales and support resources for several large Silvus projects.

Thank you to Ross, Mark, and the rest of the Amber team for another year of outstanding performance. We look forward to exciting years ahead working with Amber Technology to continue leading the MIMO revolution Down Under.
