Prologix Distribution has signed a partnership agreement with Fluke Networks to deliver the vendor’s range of network monitoring, analysis, troubleshooting and security solutions to enterprise customers and SMBs in the UAE.
Prologix will leverage Fluke Networks’ OptiView, TruView and AirMagnet solutions to build high-performance networks that will see deployment in the telecom, banking, finance, contact centres, oil and gas, healthcare, hospitality and education sectors, a Prologix statement said.
“The broad range of industries that these solutions can be deployed in gives us a wider customer base to target,” said Sarwan Singh, Director Sales and Operation, Prologix. “The ability to identify, analyse and troubleshoot network disruptions on the go is essential to ensuring service delivery that meets QoS expectations. Our partnership with Fluke Networks further strengthens Prologix’s networking capabilities, allowing us to add yet another facet to our solutions portfolio.”
Prologix expects the partnership to generate in excess of $1.5 million in the first year and has established a team of five network professionals dedicated to the new product range. These engineers have all received training directly from Fluke Networks on the company’s OptiView, TruView and AirMagnet solutions and are capable of rapidly deploying convincing POCs in highly complex customer network environment, Prologix said.
As per the agreement, Fluke Networks will further extend sales and pre-sales support to the Prologix team and assist in identifying solutions and deployment scenarios that will best meet customer requirements.
Fluke Networks’ OptiView is a hand-held tablet device that allows network managers to analyse and troubleshoot anything, anywhere in the network, at any time. It automates root cause analysis of network and application problems to reduce the time required for troubleshooting. This ease of use is also seen in Fluke Networks’ TruView unified network and application performance troubleshooting appliance, which correlates data into guided workflows to provide root cause visibility in three clicks or less.
Prologix will also offer AirMagnet, a tool set for wireless planning, deployment, verification, troubleshooting, interference, security and 24×7 performance monitoring. The solution spans the entire WLAN lifecycle, from planning and deployment to ongoing troubleshooting and dedicated security monitoring, combatting all wireless issues.
The set of mobile tools has been specifically designed for the pre-deployment planning, ongoing management and multifaceted security of IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n networks, according to Fluke Networks.
“The decision to sign on Prologix was almost intuitive given how well our businesses align for our mutual benefit. Their proven track record of successfully implemented networking and telecom related projects and strong ties with global networking leaders such as Cisco, Juniper and HP give us confidence that they have the right type of customers to benefit from our solutions,” said Ziad Sawtari of Fluke Networks.
