Westcon Group, a value-added distributor of unified communications, network infrastructure, data centre, and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, recently announced the significant extension of its security portfolio in EMEA. The company said that it will offer partners access to the full range of Juniper Networks MX Series Routers.
Powered by Juniper Networks Junos operating system, the MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers deliver high-performance network infrastructure that provides fast, secure and reliable delivery of applications that drive business processes while containing cost and increasing operational efficiency, the company said. The MX Series is capable of supporting all types of business, mobile, and residential services, it added.
“Juniper Networks continues to be an important partner throughout the EMEA theatre and especially in MENA, delivering resellers the software and systems necessary to transform the networking experience. Now, we’re taking the relationship to the next level with the availability of MX Series,” said Steve Lockie, MD, WestconME Group. “Westcon continues to invest heavily in the stocking and education for assembling custom MX Series Routers in our staging facilities. This expertise enables us to deliver configured solutions in extremely short time frames – a really great win for our resellers.”
The announcement comes shortly after Juniper Networks named Westcon as ‘EMEA Distributor of the Year.’ The companies continue to expand on their strong relationship in an effort to capitalise on a significant market opportunity with resellers across EMEA. In addition to now offering the MX5, MX10, MX40 and MX80 routers, the relationship is also supported by a range of new services, from lead-time delivery to configure-to-order and new partner enablement programmes.
“Westcon continues to be a strong partner across Middle East and this expansion is a testament to its success,” said David Helfer, VP, partners at Juniper Networks. “As the company continuously demonstrates strong expertise and executes well against our vision of the new network built on simplicity, security, openness and scale, we now offer their resellers access to one of our most successful and versatile solutions.”
