FVC introduces Cyan SDN and packet-optical solutions
As part of its continued commitment to introduce cutting-edge technology to the region, Dubai-based FVC, a leading Value Added Distributor (VAD) in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) and authorised distributor for Cyan, has announced the launch of Cyan software-defined networking (SDN) and packet-optical solutions for enterprise networks in the Middle East. The announcement coincided with the recent visit of Cyan’s Chairman and CEO, Mark Floyd, to the region.
Cyan, a provider of SDN and packet-optical solutions, traditionally works with telecom operators and is offering these solutions now to enterprises across the Middle East.
K. S. Parag, managing director of FVC, said, “The solution is especially useful for large networks like university campuses, e-government services, airports, as well as oil & gas networks. This technology is also an enabler for smart cities and will help governments in the region provide a more diverse set of e-government services to its citizens.”
To support the growing demand for SDN solutions in the region, Cyan has announced that it will be opening its Middle East presence with a regional office in Dubai. As part of its ongoing commitment to FVC, the new office will provide support to FVC’s sales, pre-sales and post-sales team, to enable them to provide localized support and services to its partners from its regional offices.
“Bandwidth demands, cloud computing, mobility and other demands are forcing a new era in network transformation,” said Mark Floyd, chairman and CEO of Cyan. “With the increasingly distributed nature of enterprise infrastructures, new, flexible, and elastic SDN and packet optical services provide an important new means to monetize network investments and give end-users the ability to control their own services. Cyan is proud to expand its presence in the region and play an integral role in FVC’s offerings to the Middle East market.”
