In December 2017, iOra presented three Myriad Technologies team members with the iOra Most Valuable Professional (iMVP) status.

Chief technical officer James Milne, product manager Nicholas Forbes, and Canberra-based consultant Emma Steel were recognised for their technical expertise in architecting and deploying iOra technologies.

Myriad’s joint work with iOra includes building innovative technical solutions for the Australian Department of Defence and the New Zealand Defence Force, both of whom require reliable, trustworthy technology to transfer the most up-to-date information over geographically disbursed areas and challenging landscapes.

iOra’s Geo-Replicator® service enables users worldwide to communicate more effectively over global or satellite-enabled networks even during periodic disconnect, with limited bandwidth, or high latency.

iMVP certification is valid for 12 months and is limited to a select group of professionals in recognition of their technical abilities, ability to problem solve, and experience using the complex replication technology.

Emma said she was surprised and pleased to learn she was being awarded iMVP status.

Emma said: “I’ve been working with iOra’s replication products for five years and the benefits it offers our customers still amaze me to this day.

“Recently I was demonstrating the bandwidth efficiencies to a potential customer, and he almost fell off his chair when he saw that a file compressed in size to a thousandth of its original size to send across a maritime bearer.”
