Networks First has become one of the first UK partners of Extreme Networks (Extreme), the global network infrastructure company, to offer services and support for both Extreme and Enterasys technologies, since the acquisition of Enterasys in November 2013. The new partnership enables partners of Extreme and Enterasys a single route and easy access to products, services and support through Networks First.
As a managed network specialist, Networks First delivers a range of services for Voice, LAN, WAN, Data Centre and Security through its partner base. Having worked with both Extreme and Enterasys for nearly 15 years, Networks First has been selected by Extreme to continue providing channel focused support and professional services to both organisations under the new union.
Chris Elliot, Channel Director UK&I, Extreme says: "The acquisition of Enterasys completed by Extreme in November 2013 unveiled a new spectrum of opportunities for our partners. Our Channel has played a critical role in this transition. Having worked with Extreme for many years, Networks First is a company we can trust to deliver a high level of service and support to our customers and partners.
Networks First is now fully certified to support the combined Extreme Enterasys portfolio, having developed a great expertise of our switching, wireless and network management product lines."
Paul Hager, Vendor Alliances Manager at Networks First says, "The new partnership with Extreme provides partners with a single organisation to contact for either Extreme or Enterasys requirements, with just one number to contact for both legacy estate support and the new developing technologies. Our multi-vendor accredited Service Delivery team ensures that we can deliver competitive and fully vendor approved support services to our partners."
Networks First is a channel centric organisation with a 24×7 Network Operation Centre and Monitoring and Managed Network Services to support its nationwide field service engineering team, who deliver restoration of service and support.
