Macquarie Cloud Services, part of the Macquarie Telecom Group (ASX:MAQ), has committed to a 5-year deal with FirstWave Cloud Technology (ASX:FCT) (FirstWave) for the provision of network monitoring and intelligence software.
The solution from FirstWave will help to provide Macquarie Cloud Services with the network intelligence to achieve their goals of having a single-pane-of-glass view of critical systems.

Through these the organisation will be able to consolidate management of tools and network infrastructure element managers , centralising visibility of critical systems to provide improved efficiency and control.
Underpinning the solution for Macquarie Cloud Services is software developed by Opmantek Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of FirstWave since January 2022. These network monitoring systems provide automation and network intelligence to leading organisations worldwide, including Microsoft, Telmex, and NASA.
FirstWave CEO and Managing Director Danny Maher said, “following the acquisition of Opmantek, our strategy has been to focus on helping service providers and telcos succeed, with this long-term commitment from Macquarie Cloud Services helping to validate our strategy.”
Having chosen FirstWave following a rigorous evaluation process, Group Executive – Macquarie Cloud Services James Mystakidis said, “we are pleased to be working with FirstWave to implement a new level of network monitoring and automation within our business. We believe their software will help us to be more efficient in how we manage our network, and improve outcomes for our customers.”

Macquarie Cloud Services’ strategic objective of having a ‘Manager of Managers’ across their network monitoring systems is addressing a problem faced by many businesses globally.
