Expand Networks (, recently positioned in the Gartner's Leaders Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers 2006, today announced the expansion of its global operations with the opening of new offices in China. Expand China is headquartered in Beijing with branch offices in Shanghai and Shenzhen and will be supporting the territories of Hong Kong and Macau.

"We have been experiencing strong demand from many organizations currently operating in China - regional and international - who are looking for local expertise to help them manage their key IT initiatives including WAN optimization, application acceleration, IT consolidation, backup, disaster recovery and wide area file services (WAFS) to support their core business needs," said Michael Peevey, Vice President Sales, APAC, Expand Networks.
