Radware’s complete solution portfolio expands products and support for Packet Fusion’s existing and new customer base
Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced it has signed Packet Fusion, a provider of telephony solutions mid-market and enterprise voice and data provider, as a Radware reseller partner; further expanding Radware’s foothold in the global application delivery market. By joining Radware’s channel network, Packet Fusion will receive extensive knowledge and training for all Radware application delivery and application security product lines including the newly acquired Alteon product line from Nortel.
“We are glad that Radware picked up the Alteon product line and will make it live on, states Matt Pingatore,” President & CEO Packet Fusion. “This enables us to continue to sell Alteon products to our current customers - but by adding Radware solutions to our portfolio - we will be able to better respond to our customer’s needs and thus, expand our presence in the telecommunications space.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Packet Fusion will work closely with Radware to sell these solutions as a key component to establishing the next-generation data center solution for the ever-growing telecommunications sector. As a new partner, Packet Fusion will be able to better serve its customers; increasing the value it delivers by offering one of the most technologically-advanced application delivery products available.
Radware is dedicated to providing the highest level of support, best practices, and responsiveness to ensure long-lasting channel partner and end-customer satisfaction and success. The Company is committed to the Alteon brand – in terms of the product line, channel and customers – by guaranteeing a five-year product support plan and roadmap, which includes upgrading the product line and its longevity.
“We are pleased to be working with Packet Fusion and to be able to provide a more complete portfolio of products to further develop business in the telecommunications community, “ stated Frank Rubio, Vice-President, Channel Development. “Helping our partners build their customer base and provide a greater choice of products to best suit the needs of their customers, reinforces our belief that the acquisition of the Alteon product line was the right move for Radware.”
Radware acquired the Alteon Layer 4-7 application delivery products on March 31, 2009, which included Alteon Application Switches and Alteon Application Accelerators. The Alteon products deliver application availability, performance and security by balancing and accelerating traffic and by giving IT managers control over their network.
Since the acquisition, Radware has delivered enhanced training, programs and tools to help channel partners understand Radware’s Alteon vision, key differentiators and value-added benefits as well as to introduce Radware comprehensive data center application delivery and security to the channel partners.
