Distributor has added OneAccess-branded portfolio to offering
Extending its presence in the network virtualisation space, leading technology distributor Exertis has partnered with Ekinops, a leading network access and virtualisation specialist, by signing a distribution agreement for its OneAccess-branded portfolio.
Market-proven by service providers globally, Ekinops’ OneAccess portfolio provides a wide choice of innovative physical and virtualised solutions for enterprise network services. OneAccess-branded routers are deployed with OneOS6 built-in services, which means network functions such as SD-WAN can be activated on demand. This enables flexible, future-proof network management capabilities and accommodates diversifying and growing connectivity demands. Ekinops has also grown its UK and Ireland sales team alongside its distribution announcement with Exertis.
“As one of the UK’s largest and most trusted technology distributors, we pride ourselves on our strong vendor partnerships to deliver quality, cost-effective solutions for our customers,” says Tom Cox (pictured), Commercial Director Enterprise Division at Exertis. “Ekinops and its OneAccess portfolio embody these values. As a widely trusted, reliable and mature technology brand, we look forward to offering the OneAccess portfolio to our customers and facilitating truly next-gen network solutions.”
“An agile, partnership-driven approach is at the heart of Ekinops’ offering,” says Frank Dedobbeleer, Group Vice President Sales EMEA & APAC at Ekinops. “To deliver this, it is vital that alongside a skilled regional sales presence, we have a distribution partner who shares our values.”
“We pride ourselves on a strong global presence,” Dedobbeleer adds. “In 2020, 63% of our total revenue came from international markets, an upward trend we intend to continue. The UK and Irish telecoms sector is undergoing a period of exciting growth and transformation, and enhancing our established presence and investments.”
