By | February 28, 2006

Unipalm, the UK and Ireland№s foremost distributor of Internet technology solutions, has signed a distribution agreement with Packeteer, the pioneer and global leader in WAN application optimisation.

Packeteer offers business customers a compelling, all encompassing solution for improving the delivery of not only business-critical data applications over wide-area networks (WAN), but also video and voice applications,І says Rob Nash, director of e-business at Unipalm. іPacketeer also has a strong control and security element to its solution, which is directly relevant to many of our existing reseller partners. This partnership further strengthens our position in the mobility and convergence space, and complements many existing Unipalm vendors such as Citrix and Aruba.

As businesses look to broaden their communication networks to support remote users, mobile workforces and distributed sites, the need for solutions that can guarantee high application performance and quality of service over WANs has never been greater. With Packeteer, channel partners can tap into this market opportunity with products that have a proven track record and are already established as market leading.

We will be introducing Packeteer solutions to our customers both in the UK and also in Ireland, where we will be the only distributor with local presence. The interest has been strong already, we´ve found Packeteer excellent to work with, and we´re anticipating a very productive relationship, added Nash.

Packeteer solutions combine a family of scalable appliances with patented software capabilities to deliver unmatched visibility, control, acceleration, and management of application traffic across WAN and Internet links. These solutions help deliver optimal networked application performance at every business location.

Packeteer is aggressively growing its offering in network security and the partnership with Unipalm is an excellent strategic move into this space for us, says Mike Hemes, country manager at Packeteer. We are confident that this collaboration will prove fruitful for Packeteer, Unipalm and its customers.
