Wavelink forms partnership with US-based Extreme Networks
Tech company Wavelink has secured an agreement with US-based networking company, Extreme Networks, to be a wireless mobility specialist for their solutions in Australia and New Zealand.
As part of the new agreement, Australian-based Wavelink will have access to Extreme Networks’ full portfolio of solutions, including ExtremeWireless 802.11ac Wave 2 wireless LAN, the ExtremeSwitching range, and Extreme Networks’ suite of network software, including ExtremeAnalytics, ExtremeControl, and ExtremeManagement.
According to Wavelink managing director Ilan Rubin, “This new partnership gives Wavelink the ability to provide complete end-to-end network solutions to our resellers and their customers. Our focus to date has been solely on the supply of the wireless component of the network.
“Now, with the addition of Extreme Networks solutions, we can deliver a number of other network components, significantly increasing the value of the solution that our partners are delivering. There is significant overlap between Wavelink’s and Extreme’s target vertical markets, such as healthcare, education, and manufacturing, creating additional synergies.”
Rubin adds that the two parties will not only be working on developing opportunities with existing common partners, third party suppliers and end customers, but will also be expanding the Extreme offering to new resellers and end customers.
“Extreme Networks has been doing some fantastic work with its solutions, yet it is something of a well-kept secret in the region. Wavelink aims to assist in building greater recognition for the brand locally. We look forward to working closely with Extreme Networks’ strong local and regional teams to make this happen,” Rubin says.
Extreme Networks director of channel sales and alliance, APAC, John Boladin says Wavelink shares Extreme’s dedication to growth and performance, as well as its passion for delivering seamless networking solutions across healthcare, education and manufacturing sectors.
“This partnership not only serves to deliver end-to-end networking solutions to Wavelink’s customers and resellers, but also to foster strong relationships with their channel partners through Extreme’s full portfolio of services,” Boladin says.
