Bluesocket, the leader in open wireless network, security and management solutions, has announced a new value added distribution agreement with Sphinx, one of the UK’s leading IT distributors specialising in security and networking.
The agreement sees the two companies partnering to fill a gap in the growing wireless market, where enterprises are looking for high quality WiFi products, teamed with expert skills in implementing and securing wireless networks.
Bluesocket selected Sphinx for its focused security distribution model and its unique ability to quickly develop the Bluesocket channel by tapping into an existing reseller base of more than 500 VARs. Bluesocket operates entirely through the channel and does no direct selling in the UK.
Sphinx will distribute the complete range of Bluesocket products, including BlueSecure Access Points and Wireless Controllers, the BlueView Management System and Wireless LANPlanner software. The company will also launch Bluesocket’s first enterprise-class Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO) wireless Access Point into the channel later this month.
Sphinx and Bluesocket will work together initially to train and educate the channel about the wireless networking market and the issues that customers are facing today.
