Leading Reseller Will Provide Companies Throughout Norway With Advanced Deep Packet Inspection Technology

Founded in 2000, Cumulus is a consultancy supplier with a primary focus on technology competence that initially specialized in firewalls and other network security products. In 2005 the company was acquired by Hafslund Telekom, one of Norway's five largest suppliers of fiber optic network access to broadband operators, municipalities, and businesses and industry. Hafslund Telekom serves approximately 1,500 corporate customers and 3,000 private-market customers, and is a division of Hafslund ASA, one of the largest utility companies in the Nordic region.
