Dubai-based leading value added distributor, FVC signed a premier partner agreement with Cyan to distribute software-defined network (SDN) and packet-optical solutions in Middle East.
The agreement entails FVC to provide training and certification besides developing business and channel support to the channel partners in the region
K.S. Parag, Managing Director at FVC, said, “This distribution agreement will expand our networking solutions and enable our partners to offer cutting-edge SDN and packet-optical technology to our customers across the region. Both companies are committed to taking a leadership position in the region focused on ‘SDN for transport networks’ targeting large enterprise campus networks, cloud datacenters, fixed network service providers and mobile operators.”
FVC will be Cyan’s regional Premier Partner with the right to assign Cyan resellers in the MENA region. The partnership will be supported by Cyan resources located in the Middle East.
Ravi Mali, General Manager & Regional Director – Middle East & Africa at Cyan, said, “The joint FVC and Cyan value proposition will help reduce capital and operating costs, while giving customers the capability to offer new SDN-based services that link applications and networks in a way that could never have been done before. Using Cyan’s Blue Planet SDN system, customers have the unique ability to visualize, manage, operate and orchestrate their multi-layer and multi-vendor network. Operators can save costs by leveraging existing network devices that are able to migrate to SDN instead versus ripping and replacing the current infrastructure.”
According to Mali, “FVC is one of the few companies that specializes in bringing emerging technology to both integrators and customers in the MENA region. This gives Cyan a launch pad to bring SDN for transport networks to the region.”
