Kaon Interactive's 3D Product Applications Gain Momentum as the New Standard in IT & Telecom Equipment Marketing

Leading IT & Telecom Equipment Companies Use Kaon v-Rack for Interactive 3D Product Demonstrations at Oracle OpenWorld 2014

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2014) -  ORACLE OPENWORLD 2014 -- Kaon Interactive, the leading provider of interactive 3D product marketing and sales applications, announced today that Oracle OpenWorld's host company, and top IT and telecom marketers Nimble Storage, NetScout Systems, Inc. and others, will be using the Kaon v-Rack® (virtual rack) to showcase their networking, computing and storage products interactively at Oracle OpenWorld 2014 in San Francisco, CA. Kaon is gaining significant industry momentum with 58% of its customers in the global IT and telecommunications sector. These industry innovators use Kaon's solutions to better demonstrate and differentiate their rack-mounted hardware with interactive applications that show what's going on 'under the hood' and how the products work in real-world environments.

According to the August 2014 Econsultancy report, telecom marketers dedicate almost half (46%) of their marketing budgets to digital marketing technology, which is significantly higher than the average of 38% across all other sectors. Apps topped the list of channels telcos will use to engage with mobile users over next 12 months. Respondents also said 58% of their Web users are multichannel (accessing both mobile and desktop), making the multi-platform marketing play a top initiative for telecom marketers in 2015.

"We believe that digital marketing for telecommunication and IT equipment companies will increase substantially over the next few years," said Gavin Finn, president and CEO of Kaon Interactive. "The desire to create sustained customer engagement cross-channel is causing companies to examine the most efficient and cost effective ways to communicate their unique differentiation, specifically through direct and indirect sales channels. We believe that emerging interactive digital marketing technologies will allow them to achieve these objectives."

About Kaon v-Rack
The Kaon v-Rack® virtually demonstrates entire families of rack mounted switches, routers, servers, and storage products like never before, cost effectively creating a user experience relevant to a real-world environment. It is a virtual 3D Product Model (which look and behave like the actual products) on an interactive touch screen mounted within an actual rack. Users have the ability to view, experience and manipulate digital representations of products (e.g. zoom, spin, open drawers, add components, show workflow and process), eliminating the need to have a product physically present for demonstrations.
