SYNNEX Corporation's CONVERGESolv Secure Networking Group Lowers Barrier to Entry of Wireless Solutions Services for Mid-Market and Mid-Level Enterprises With SYNNEX Networking Aruba Program
GREENVILLE, S.C. --(Business Wire)--
Corporation (NYSE: SNX), a leading distributor of IT products and
services, announces today that its CONVERGESolv
Secure Networking group has created a new turnkey wireless solutions
services program for mid-market and mid-level enterprises using Aruba
Networks (NASDAQ:ARUN) products. The program, SYNNEX
Networking Aruba Program, provides services to resellers in
pre-sales support (RF planning and building of bill of materials),
marketing assistance, hardware procurement and professional services
that include wireless site surveys and installations nationwide for
their mid-market customers. This easy-to-join and -deploy program
requires no authorization process and allows resellers to quickly go to
market with a wireless offering.
Recent IDC (News - Alert) studies(1, 2) show that an increased number of
enterprise and mid-market IT and network managers are rethinking their
wireless and wired networks to support increased traffic needs as more
of their users are accessing the network using smart mobile devices. The
SYNNEX (News - Alert) Networking Aruba Program was developed to give resellers a
relatively easy entry into wireless to address such organizations' needs
for adaptable, robust, easily deployed wireless LAN solutions.
"SYNNEX is always seeking out better ways to help our resellers break
into new business opportunities and to streamline business processes.
SYNNEX Networking Aruba Program does just that," stated Peter Larocque,
President, US Distribution for SYNNEX Corporation. "Resellers that
currently have a wireless practice can cover more ground to take on more
business with the SYNNEX Networking Aruba Program, and those new to
wireless can easily start their practice because we've done the heavy
ifting for them."
The Aruba Networks (News - Alert) products included in the SYNNEX Networking Aruba
Aruba Instant: Controller-less Wireless LAN solution that is quick and
easy to deploy, yet delivers comprehensive enterprise-grade security,
resiliency and scale.
Aruba AirWave (News - Alert): Multi-vendor, multi-site network management system
providing a single picture of everything affecting the network.
S2500/S3500 Mobility Access Switches: A family of mobility access
switches that bring user role-based access to wired networks. These
Gigabit Ethernet switches operate as high-performance, wired access
points when deployed with an Aruba Mobility Controller.
SYNNEX Networking Aruba Program members receive back-end rebates on
these products as they achieve various sales milestones.
According to SYNNEX customer Benjamin Kwong, Sales Account Manager at
ChicagoMicro, a rapidly growing national technology solutions provider
headquartered in Arlington Heights, Illinois, "The SYNNEX Networking
Aruba Program allows ChicagoMicro to save time and money, exceed our
customers' expectations and close a profitable deal with increased
margins. The SYNNEX team stayed focused on the opportunity, took the
lead, when appropriate, and included additional value that encouraged
The SYNNEX Networking Aruba Program makes it easier for SYNNEX resellers
to launch a Wi-Fi networking offering or add Aruba Instant to their
existing practice without expending a great deal of time and energy,"
said Jim Harold, VP Channels, Aruba Networks. "SYNNEX' ability to
successfully bring top-level services to market for the channel using
our industry-leading products is another reason why we continue to
participate in CONVERGESolv Secure Networking programs."
