BlueCat Networks, Quintica in reseller partnership

BlueCat Networks, the IPAM Intelligence subsidiary, has announced its partnership with Quintica, an ICT solutions provider in South Africa. Quintica will be BlueCat Networks’ direct partner and reseller for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and South Africa.

The partnership will help strengthen BlueCat Networks’ presence in the MENA region and South Africa market as well as promote BlueCat Networks’ suite of IPAM services.

Quintica Group is an integrated systems technology company that provides complex infrastructure solutions managed and hosted services and professional solution sets to drive information efficiency, operational governance and service improvement across emerging markets in the MENA region and Africa. This new partnership will enable Quintica to provide large enterprises as well as small and medium businesses (SMBs) in the MENA region and South Africa with BlueCat Networks’ newly-launched Proteus Cloud Services and market-leading IPv6 Address Management platforms.

IP address management (IPAM) is becoming a crucial issue for organisations, as most current networks run on the IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4). With IPv4 addresses likely to be fully committed by Q2 of 2011, organisations will have to adopt the new IPv6 for future addresses – with many organisations running a combination of IPv4 and IPv6. BlueCat Networks’ Proteus IPAM v3.5 offers a complete end-to-end IPAM solution for both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
