First Distribution is pleased to announce that it has entered into a distributor agreement with Extreme Networks to distribute their networking products and solutions through business partners throughout southern Africa.
First Distribution has gone to great lengths recently to expand its networking portfolio, and the premium products and solutions offered by Extreme Networks fits perfectly within its existing product range.
Extreme Networks offers a wide range of high-end networking products aimed at the enterprise network and data centre markets, encompassing stackable switches, chassis-based switches, wireless, mobile backhaul routers and access switches amongst other product offerings.
Recognising the potential of having Extreme Networks as its client, First Distribution will use its market knowledge and existing strong partner relationships to both parties’ mutual advantage.
“Extreme Networks is a brand we’re excited to be distributing,” says First Distribution GM, Charlie Murray.
“They have a great range of products which fit into our own range of networking offerings, and their capacity for innovation and pushing the market is something which we’re proud to be associated with as well.”
Founded in 1996, Extreme Networks has built up a reputation in the networking industry for its product innovation, service and quality. Products like the recently released and award-winning BlackDiamond X8 chassis-based switch reinforce this notion with its high density 10GbE and 40GbE capability.
“Mobility is driving network upgrades,” says Roland Richter, VP of EMEA sales at Extreme Networks. “To stay competitive, businesses are mobilising their people and apps around new data centre and cloud infrastructures. We look forward to collaborating with First Distribution in southern Africa.”
In accordance with its value-added distributor status, First Distribution has certified product specialists who are able to assist with technical queries and installation of Extreme Networks products.
