Enables Distribution of Testing Equipment for 40/100G Telecom Networks in GCC
Prologix Distribution has signed a partnership agreement with Digital Lightwave, a provider of test equipment and technologies for the telecommunications industry, which will mark the introduction of vendor in the Middle East IT market. The agreement enables Prologix to distribute Digital Lightwave's entire portfolio of products for portable/rack-mount Ethernet, Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH), Optical Transport Network (OTN) and Fiber Channel testing. These solutions fill the current market gap for high-speed multi-protocol 40/100G network test equipment.
Aditya Sahaya, Director-Sales, Prologix LLC said, “Digital Lightwave's innovative and modular solutions allow testing advanced voice and data networks with higher efficiency, accuracy and at a lower investment. Leveraging these technologies and the long standing expertise of this market leader will help us steadily gain market share though business opportunities with both new and existing partners.”
Though the agreement is for distribution of the entire product portfolio, the VAD will focus on Digital Lightwave's Network Information Computer (NIC) single platform instrument which, through a flexible software/firmware architecture, combines a multitude of traditional hardware-based test sets enabling the installation, maintenance, and monitoring of high-speed multi-protocol 40/100G networks. It offers multi-technology, multi-user support and comes with three years warranty and 24/7 technical support provided directly by the vendor.
In its first year, Prologix estimates business in excess of $1 million. Sahaya said, “Network resilience is pivotal to the growth of Middle East telcos and effective testing is essential for this. We ensure that the solutions we offer to the market are best of breed and are confident in our partners ability to create a strong demand.”
